Tuttosport: Agent of Milan midfield star asks for 127% pay rise in order to renew contract

By Oliver Fisher -

The agent of Franck Kessie has requested a big pay rise in order for his client to renew his contract with Milan, according to a report.

The importance of Kessie cannot be understated given that the Ivorian has become an immovable member of the starting XI and has been the most consistent performer in the double pivot that Stefano Pioli’s 4-2-3-1 formation is geared around.

However, Kessie has a contract expiring in 2022 and for this reason Milan has already started talks with his agent to discuss the renewal, given that the Donnarumma and Calhanoglu cases show how leaving it until the last year to negotiate is a risky move.

According to Tuttosport (via MilanNews), during the meeting a few days ago at Casa Milan, the 23-year-old’s agent asked the Milan management for a salary of about €5m net per year, more than double the €2.2m net he currently receives and a 127% increase.

    Raiola is responsible for this mess. Milan should sell all contract rebels and rebuild the team.

    It’s all Raiola
