Tuttosport: De Ketelaere and three alternatives – Milan keep options open

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan remain determined to bolster the attacking options available to Stefano Pioli ahead of the new season, with various options considered.

Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Charles De Ketelaere is the number one target. The Belgian would approve of the destination and would like to play in the Champions League. Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are expected to raise their offer to Club Brugge but there is competition from England.

Milan continue to maintain constant contact with Chelsea over Hakim Ziyech. There is no agreement on the high salary that the Moroccan gets (€6m net per season) and also on the loan formula as Milan would like an option to buy and Chelsea want an obligation at €25m. The player has already made it known that he welcomes the possibility of playing for Milan.

Then, Marco Asensio and Renato Sanches are also being thought of for the role of playmaker. The Spaniard will almost certainly not renew with Real Madrid but earns €7m net and would cost €25m, while for Sanches the situation is different as he would be viewed as Franck Kessie’s heir rather than just a No.10.

  1. Sanches IS NOT A KESSIE HEIR!!! He is NOT a defensive midfielder like Kessie was. He is more of a 10 and a play maker….an offensive minded midfielder.

    Let’s get CDK and not Sanches. If we fail to get CDK, then Sanches should be the backup plan for the 10 because Diaz was terrible there.
