AC Milan have not yet found an agreement with Franck Kessie over the renewal of his contract, Fabrizio Romano has reported.
During a live Twitch stream, Romano revealed that was struggling at the beginning of the season with an injury and he took some time to get back to full fitness after the Olympic Games where he participated in Japan with his nation the Ivory Coast.
The journalist adds that Milan have been ‘negotiating a long time but have found no agreement’, with a distance between the parties. For their part, Milan have a ‘really clear stance’ which is the same as the one they took with Hakan Calhanoglu and Gianluigi Donnarumma.
That stance is as follows: they have made an offer they feel is fair, which is €6.5m net per season plus add-ons, with an incremental salary raise, but it has not been accepted as of now and the player wants more.
Maldini is apparently ‘not talking a lot’ with Kessie and his agent but Milan ‘are hopeful to find a solution’ and ‘they still hope that Kessie will change his mind’. If he does not renew, then PSG and Premier League clubs are the ones to look out for.
