AC Milan are expected to launch a new bid for Charles De Ketelaere soon after a meeting with Club Brugge today, according to reports.
According to MilanNews, the meeting in Belgium between Paolo Maldini and Ricky and Massara and the management of Club Bruges regarding the purchase of De Ketelaere ended in the last couple of hours.
The meeting was a ‘cordial and interlocutory’ one but the negotiations will have to continue as a full agreement was not reached. There should be further talks in the next few hours in search of a definitive deal, while Milan’s newest offer is expected either tonight or tomorrow.
Alexandre Braeckman of RTL Sport reports that the meeting today allowed Brugge to communicate very clearly the price they are asking for, while there is ‘optimism confirmed by both parties’ and Milan will evaluate a final offer which will arrive ‘very quickly’. No offer was made during the meeting.
De Ketelaere absolutely wants the talks to conclude quickly, while the discussions between Milan and Club Brugge are being closely followed by Leeds, who will counterattack immediately if an agreement is not reached with the Rossoneri.
