Barcelona and Real Madrid are betting on an AC Milan player to strengthen themselves in 2022.
The Rossoneri club has two important elements such as Alessio Romagnoli e Franck Kessie contract expiring next June. Their future is uncertain and in recent weeks many rumors have leaked.
Simon Kjaer is also in the same contractual situation, but his renewal is much easier. The economic conditions for reaching an agreement are completely different. The two comrades, on the other hand, want high salaries and this makes negotiations complicated. AC Milan, however, will try to keep all three of them.
Barcelona and Real Madrid want Kessie
Today the newspaper AS explains that on Kessie’s footsteps there are both Barcelona and Real Madrid. Barça’s interest has already been talked about for several days, while that of whites it is something that is more of a novelty. The Madrid club sees it as a natural alternative to housemiro, which will turn 30 next year.
Attention must be paid to the Paris Saint Germain, which on Kessie moved first. Leonardo, who from Milan has already taken Gianluigi Donnarumma on a free transfer, has already had contacts with agent George Atangana. According to some rumors, there is already an offer for a contract worth around 8 million euros net per season.
The Milan went so far as to propose up to 6.5 million per year for renewal. At the moment, the will of the Rossoneri club to raise this offer does not appear. Consequently, there is a strong risk of losing the Ivorian midfielder on a free transfer. Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara have put on the table an important salary compared to the 2.2 million he receives now and they expected the yes to the signing. Especially after statements from the former Atalanta at the end of July. It seemed like a downward renewal, instead we are witnessing a negotiation with an uncertain outcome. Easier to be pessimistic than optimistic today.
