Sportitalia: Milan send ultimatum to Kessie and agree terms with replacement in Maignan-style move

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are looking to wrestle back control in the Franck Kessie saga by pushing for his potential replacement, a journalist has claimed.

Kessie has been at the centre of attention from both fans and the media lately as he is yet to sign a renewal with Milan, and his contract now has less than nine months to run on it with nothing to suggest a renewal is imminent. In fact, the situation seems to be very complicated and the Rossoneri might have to look for a replacement, given a number of high profile clubs are being linked with the Ivorian.

According to the latest from Rudy Galetti of Sportitalia on Twitter, Milan have agreed a deal with Boubacar Kamara of Marseille on a potential free transfer ahead of next June, as his deal is also expiring.

The club want an answer from Kessie before January and the Rossoneri have in mind possible operation similar to the one that saw Gianluigi Donnarumma essentially replaced by Mike Maignan before the Italian’s deal had even expired.

  1. “AC Milan are looking to…”

    Shouldn’t it be “AC Milan IS looking to…” — so, ‘is’ instead of ‘are’!?

    It looks silly and you are constantly making the same mistake.

    AC Milan is a club. IS not are. Capisci?

    Are you Italian? Whoever writes this please correct this mistake…

    1. English Lesson for you KEK :
      The Gregg Reference Manual offers this advice:

      Organizational names may be treated as either singular or plural. Ordinarily, treat the name as singular unless you wish to emphasize the individuals who make up the organization; in that case, use the plural. . . . Use the singular or plural form consistently within the same context.

      Gregg provides these correct examples:

      Brooks & Rice has lost its lease. It is now looking for a new location.

      Brooks & Rice have lost their lease. They are now looking for a new location.

    2. Stupid. The main purpose of language is to communicate and make people understand the thought process. Silly arguing about grammar here


    3. Is or are – who cares lol. The point is – if this journalist is right – we have signed Kamara….couldn’t be happier. He’s a steal on a free.

    1. That’s a very important question and a resolution is need now !
      Milan have nine players out injured or with CV19 and every play fit is needed to compete in all competitions, especially with one goal and all moving in the same direction.
