Report: Milan have Portugal international in mind as potential replacement for Kessie

By Oliver Fisher -

An idea has emerged as a potential replacement for Franck Kessie and they could arrive from Real Betis in Spain, according to a report.

Kessie’s contract with Milan runs out at the end of the season and if he were to refuse offers from Milan for a renewal and thus decide to leave on a free transfer, the Rossoneri management would be forced to try and replace him with a player of quality.

According to (via MilanLive), there is already a profile that Milan are following in case they have to replace Kessie in William Carvalho of Real Betis. The Portugal international came through the Sporting Lisbon academy and has been playing for Betis since 2018, but he could decide to try a new experience.

The 29-year-old has a contract expiring in June 2023 which means that next summer could be the right time to sell for the LaLiga side.

  1. Can the coach stop playing Kessie for now? His head is elsewhere and playing him is costing the team. Almost like playing with a man down.

  2. I’m not even sure we’ll need a direct replacement for Kessie. Next summer we’ll have Tonali, Adli, Bennacer, Bakayoko, Krunic, and Pobega all vying for spots. This should be more than enough for two positions. Let’s now focus funds on finding a real solution at RW and ST, with maybe an acquisition at AMC for depth.
