Football Italy – Ita: Milan suspects a relentlessness of PSG
Soon at the end of his contract at AC Milan, Franck Kessié still seems far from an agreement with his leaders. The positions of the two parties are too far apart. And for the Italian club, the interest of Paris Saint-Germain is no stranger to this situation.
In the fight for the title in Serie A this season, AC Milan continues its ascent to national and European summits. This is not the time to lose your best elements, hence the concern for the future of Franck Kessié. As a reminder, the midfielder has started the last year of his contract. Discussions are underway with its leaders for an extension. But the two parties in contact for several months can not reach an agreement. And for good reason, their positions are quite remote if we are to believe the Corriere dello Sport.
A higher offer from PSG?
While AC Milan offers him an annual salary of 6 million euros, the Ivorian continues to claim 8 million euros per year. The former Atalanta Bergamo player and his superiors could have tried to get closer. But according to the sports daily, Franck Kessié is categorical. So much so that AC Milan suspects the existence of generous offers from outside. It is true that the Ivorian international is notably announced in the sights of Tottenham and Paris Saint-Germain, whose financial power everyone knows.
Moreover, the Rossoneri have surely not forgotten the free departure of their former goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma to the French capital. But that’s not all. We also know that the current leader of Ligue 1 is interested in the French left-back Théo Hernandez, who is also negotiating a contract extension at AC Milan. The Milanese therefore have reasons to be wary of Paris Saint-Germain, the club that had come to afford Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva in the past.
