Several clubs have shown an interest in signing Charles De Ketelaere from AC Milan but the player does not seem to want to entertain the idea of leaving.
This morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via SempreMilan.it) recalls how it was a little less than a year ago on 3 August 2022 that De Ketelaere came to Milanello for the first time after endless negotiations between Milan and Club Brugge.
Things did not go well in his first season at the club with no goals and just one assist in over 40 appearances, which has led to speculation that he could well be sold this summer for the right price.
The paper confirms that Milan would consider selling but an offer of at least €28m is needed to avoid making a loss on the accounts after a year of amortisation.
However, no club have put that figure on the table at the moment, even if there has been some interest from clubs like Aston Villa, RB Leipzig, RC Lens and above all PSV Eindhoven.
For his part, the Belgian does not want to end his adventure at Milan after just one bad year and would like to have a second chance to demonstrate his potential.
The 22-year-old will approach the new season with a clean mindset to try and show that he is worth the €35m that he cost. He will resume training this week and will try to convince Stefano Pioli to bet on him again.
