Tuttosport: Kessie saga generating tension at Milan as two camps have contrasting stances

By Oliver Fisher -

The Franck Kessie saga has caused somewhat of a divide at Milan with differing opinions on what should happen next, according to a report.

The Kessie situation has been well documented, as the Ivorian has a contract which is set to expire at the end of the current season and there is nothing to suggest a renewal is imminent nor that any progress in talks is being made. Given that he is one of the best in his position in Serie A, it is no surprise that a number of top clubs continue to be linked.

According to reports from Tuttosport (via Calciomercato.com), the scenario surrounding Kessie is generating tension within the club. There are some figures that would like the midfielder to be kept away from the field until he decides to accept the offer for a renewal.

However, there is another group that puts team goals first and believe Kessie will help achieve this season’s target. The strategy chosen did not lead to the renewal of Donnarumma and Calhanoglu, it must be noted.

  1. If he was going to renew, he’d have done so by now. It’s clear that he’ll leave, so prepare to sell in January to the highest bidder. Play him in the meantime; even if he has no loyalty to Milan, he’s still a professional, and will want to attract the club that will pay the highest wages (as we already know).

  2. Use him while he is around.We are paying him to play Even if he is not playing so well..he can come off the bench for useful minutes to rest Tonali and Bennacer. Kessie is still a Milan player so he has to keep playing.

  3. Although he’s been pretty bad when on field but I’d still prefer him over Bakayoko any day. Maan, that Timoue has been catastrophically bad this year and should be kept on bench no matter what.

    Sell Kessie in January and get Kamara (or Renato Sanchez) to replace him and we’re good.

  4. stop this saga please, 4 me he just another gigio or hakan, i wish kamara will replace him but if not happen even kucka is better than him as squad player, president /captain who think himself b4 the club is traitor.. im just oldfashion Milanista
