Sky journalist: Milan are ‘all-in on De Ketelaere’ and want to keep Brahim Diaz

By Oliver Fisher -

Sky journalist Luca Marchetti has insisted that AC Milan will continue with Charles De Ketelaere beyond the short term, and also gave an update on Brahim Diaz.

Marchetti spoke during the ‘Tutti convocati’ segment on Radio 24 (via MilanNews) about Milan’s plans for the playmaker position, stating that the Rossoneri have gone ‘all-in on De Ketelaere’ and while the investment has not paid off yet, Paolo Maldini and co. are ‘not looking at the short term’.

Instead, they know that it is worth waiting for their investments to come good and as a result they will continue to defend them. In addition, Marchetti stated that the Milan leadership also believed in Diaz, so now they ‘are going to talk to Real Madrid about keeping him’.

Diaz seems to have the starting number ten role for the time being while De Ketelaere has been coming off the bench, though last night the Belgian started alongside the Spaniard in a front two against Torino, but both were unable to score.

  1. Love the idea of going all in for a player. That’s exactly what is needed to get be best out of these players.

    And you can clearly see the benefits with Kalulu, Calabria, Tonali, Brahim and Leao. All of these struggled at the beginning and then came good.

    Even top players can struggle for a season or two. Shevchenko scored 10 in 39 in 02/03 and then 29 in 45 to go on and win the Ballon d’Or in 2004.

    There are many examples of this. The exact same player suddenly performing better or worse.

    Another important feature of this Milan side is that players have generally done better at Milan than they did at their previous clubs. That shows players improve at this Milan, they have the right conditions.

    When the exact same player goes elsewhere and performs you know there’s something wrong and that happened a lot during the chaos years.
