Report: Atletico Madrid have €18m-plus-player bid ready for Milan star in bid to usurp Liverpool

By Oliver Fisher -

Another team have now been linked with a potential swap deal for Franck Kessie as Atletico Madrid are showing interest, a report claims.

Kessie’s future is continuing to dominate the headlines as the midfielder’s contract runs out at the end of the season and nothing suggests a renewal is imminent. Il Milanista reported yesterday that PSG and Tottenham are interested in the Ivorian, but Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have also set their sights on signing Kessie.

They added that Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have in mind a potential swap deal involving Thiago Alcantara which would be an equal exchange, one that could please everyone and avoid the worst case scenario.

According to the latest from Il Milanista, the Milan management would like to keep Kessie until the end of the season, given the player’s contribution is fundamental for Pioli and for the team’s hopes of getting another top four finish.

However, Atletico Madrid are considering an offer that might just change their mind as the club wants to beat the strong competition by offering Hector Herrera plus a cash figure of around €18m.

The Mexican midfielder will also expire in 2022 and his profile is one appreciated by Milan, but the only drawback is his age (31) hence the cash adjustment.

    I would take the money but have them keep Herrera; Herrera’s salary would be money that can be better spend on a better player, namely literally anyone lol

    I 100% blame Milan for this, instead of renewing his contract last season. They once again wait till the last moment, the moment the vultures come out and try to lure him away.

    I guarantee you that clubs are reaching out to his agent offering him a lot of money.
    None of this would happen if Milan put effort into renewing last season.

    I get that Dollarruma, and Calhanoglu were scumbags. But at what point does the fault no longer lay with the players but with the club??
    What other club loses 3 of their top players for free in 2 years??

      Do you following Kessie before last season? He is so average till Ibra is coming.. even Bakayoko have more chances to play at the time.. can’t blame anyone for this, Football business is more complex than you think..

    Just take any offer LOL, Milan is not in a position to negotiate. After rejecting these offers, when he leaves for free, then you would understand.

    Don’t go too far into the matches that haven’t been done, just think about each match

  7. Dollarumma Merda says:

    competition of many clubs, Liverpool, MU, Atletico, PSG in getting kessie seems to be giving Milan a financial advantage
