Moretto: De Ketelaere wants time to decide after Milan agree key clause with Atalanta

By Oliver Fisher -

Charles De Ketelaere is moving closer to leaving AC Milan but he has not yet given full approval to the idea of joining Atalanta, it is claimed.

Reports have been swirling over the past couple of days suggesting that Milan are looking to offload De Ketelaere after one disappointing season with a number of different clubs around Europe interested.

However, it is Atalanta who have been the most concretely linked and now they appear to be closing in on the capture of the Belgian as they look to reinvent their attacking department after the sale of Rasmus Hojlund.

Matteo Moretto of Relevo has provided an update on the deal between Milan and Atalanta for De Ketelaere but adding that the Rossoneri would net 10% of the proceeds from any possible future sale.

The definitive green light from the player is still missing, and it seems the former Club Brugge man is taking his time before making a final call.

      1. I’m afraid that (finger crossed) if this novelty 4-3-3 doesn’t work out, Pioli would force to get back to his old system again. And by that time, we do not have any proper no. 10 to fill the role.

  1. i think CDK wants to prove he belongs to Milan. and realize that loan is needed to get him back on track.

    He might disagree with the buy clause, hence the delay

    1. He can just refuse the contract offer from Atalanta if Atalanta activated the clause. That way he will be back at Milan next summer.

  2. CDK had bad first season at milan. He knew it. He wants to bounce back, but Pioli is not willing to give him another chance. He gave CDK less minutes during USA tour.
    Unlike Origi, he is still young and did well at previous club. He should be given chance by letting him go on dry loan.
    Atalanta is well-known to be able to get best out of one player unlike Pioli who keeps in love in certain player.

  3. Until our management learn to be the likes of Real Madrid, where some good players who don’t shine immediately are given out on loans just to help them pick up and bounce back. Milan will keep regretting after instant sales. Most of such sales from Milan have later shined elsewhere to the shame of Milan and their managers like Pioli.

    1. Actually, they didn’t. Paqueta, Piatek, Silva, Hauge, they’ve been average. Only the players that left for nothing have been a success.
