Franck Kessié is a target for Milan and talks will continue after the Rossoneri’s match with Atalanta in Bergamo later.

Atalanta are having a standout season and are in direct competition with Milan for a spot in the Europa League, and naturally many clubs have shown interest in their players – including the Rossoneri.

Mattia Caldara has already signed for Juventus, and Roberto Gagliardini joined Inter in January, and now Milan are trying to get their hands on Franck Kessié.

As reported by Milannews.it, Sky, La Gazzetta dello Sport and others, yesterday there was a 3.5-hour meeting between Marco Fassone & Massimiliano Mirabelli, with Atalanta President Antonio Percassi and his son Luca in their Milano offices.

In the meeting, they talked of Kessié, 20, and opened the negotiations, which according to Milannews.it, will continue after the match between Milan and Atalanta on May 13. There is competition from Roma, however, who already agreed a €28m deal for him in January; a deal that didn’t materialize due to Gagliardini’s Nerrazzuri move.

il Corriere della Sera suggests that while Roma remain in the lead for the player, Kessié seems to be leaning towards Milan, who are apparently willing to offer him a five-year contract worth €1.8-2 million per season. The Giallorossi won’t give up on him and are expected to meet Atalanta today.

Gianluca Di Marzio wrote on his website that in addition to Kessié, the future of Andrea Petagna was also discussed as Milan have a 50% share of his sale if he goes in this summer and 30% share if Atalanta sell him next season. The striker of course grew up in the Diavolo’s youth sector.

According to Sky, Sassuolo’s Alfred Duncan is also viewed as an option. Fassone and Mirabelli are working on the market and after reportedly securing Musacchio, they’re searching for a midfielder.

My primary concern about this Kessie is not his qualities but if the dude is over 30. The picture of him looks good but from what I have seen on youtube I’m not very convinced. If Milan buy him I hope he turns out alright. Maybe do a Frank Rijkaard instead of a Winfried Bony.

I haven’t seen him, but since he’s been scouted by Chelsea and Roma, he has to have quality – hopefully… Otherwise, Duncan as an alternative… I have seen Duncan more than Kessie, and I can say that he is a beast, he never stops running, has good technique and a wicked left foot. He’s especially good against us, which are the games I’ve seen him excel in haha. I do think that priorities should be to extend our current players deals, and then focus on the signings.

I feel that we can buy a midfielder who brings more guarantees for 30 million, rather than using a huge chunk of our transfer budget on a “talent”. If we can afford kessie and an experienced/proven midfielder on top of him then it could work I suppose. All depends on our official transfer budget in the summer. But if it is the rumored 50 mil then we better hope we make money off of sales.

For 30 million € I say no… I think it’s a game between the two teams to increase the value of the player to be sold to Roma… This is a domino in my opinion… Kessié to Roma, naingolan to Chelsea and fabregas to Milan… And with the interesting from Chelsea for Sanchez it will be a good chance to make an offer for Willian to… A lot of money maybe but in the right direction for bringing back Milan at the top sooner than later…

If kessie transfer to roma can make fabregas come to milan then i’d say its good deal for everyone, but i dont think fab will pick milan over mu/lpool.
Willian is nice suggestion though. Hes exactly what milan needs; a fast and technical winger who can actually create assists. A black bonadinho if u will

Comment: it is either we get duncan,kessie or pelle plus an experienced player like fabregas,Isco or a a player of similar or beter quality in midfield, and the formation needs to change to have more players in midfield or a fluid formation. if we have loca,kessie,bona n any other player like suso or better, I think things should improve. I also think we should either promote 1 or 2 CB because palleta is red card prone n injury might come at anytime. in conclusion: 5/6cbs 1/2from youth sector, roma,gomez,mussachio,palleta. 3lbs,3rbs mfs;bona,loca,sosa,suso,kuco,plus any other 2 Cfs: Cutrone,Bacca,Lapa,(if they are not leaving),morata/belloti/abumeyang.… Read more »

I agree, my choice would be Pellegrini and Fabregas. But Duncan is a very strong player, and maybe Montella wants a holding midfielder? Someone with the same characteristics as Van Bommel.
If we have 30 million to spend on ONE midfielder, it should be Fabregas imo, he has won a lot, and his passing would be so essential for our team.

I watched atalanta – juve game and kessie the substitute didnt perform that much better than cristante. Its funny how some people want to buy kessie for 28 m or more (some actually want to buy pasalic for 10 m) yet milan let the real deal cristante go for much less. 2) mirabelli and fassone are so admirable at doing their job they actually made atalanta boss… Read more »

I dont see why we dont do as Roma, they’re smart. The buy back option for Pellegrini, we should have that for Petagna, not the percentage of an eventual sale, just like Saponara. Honestly, even if a big centre tank like Petagna – or old Vieri if you will – is a bit out of date, considering his age, he actually has decent stats. Wouldn’t mind bringing him back as at least a back up player. Albeit leaving him on loan for another year at Atalanta. His hold up play is impressive.

I want to like what you said, I really do, but in truth I shudder at the thought of a Milan with Petagna, Niang, Mauri, Darmian and Cristante next season.

Also, they buy horribly on a regular basis. Iturbe, Ibarbo, Gerson and Doumbia just to name a few. Maybe it changes now that Sabatini is gone but I was never a fan of him and… Read more »

I’ve watched some games that Kessie has featured in and I can say that one moment he’s an absolute beast and the next you wouldn’t know he’s there, but he’s only 20 and consistency comes with experience too. Even though I personally think that his price tag is a little much, so is everyone else nowadays. One thing for sure is he has the potential and I think Atalanta held him in higher respects to that of gagliardini. He’s a great box to box. Powerful, fast, dribbler, shooter.

I’ve seen him in a couple of matches this season, and he looked amazing in some games and good in others, which is to be expected from a 20 year old lad. (If he’s really 20!) He has massive potential, that’s for sure, and he is way, way better than Duncan, trust me.

In my opinion, both fab and pellegrini would be the best way to spend our money for midfielders. The mix of experience and a young talent. I feel Roma would give in and pellegrini could be snatched up for 20 mil. Any more than that and I’d look elsewhere.

Actually, if I have to choose between Fabregas, Kessie or Pellegrini my first choice would be Pellegrini.

Kessie and Pellegrini both could be fantastic additions to the squad, but if I have to choose one I choose Pellegrini regardless of the price tags.

Has had a solid season and is only 20 years old. A midfield with him, Fab and Loca would be amazing imo. Despite Fab’s age i think he would be a great signing, he is a “champion” to quote Galliani and Berlu, even though he is not the only reason his teams wins, but it would send out a signal to our team and competitors that we mean business.

Or wll these transfer generate a revenue of 300M hahahaha. What about our current debts of 300M????

Yes Elliot invest in sick assets. My question is, 220M debts in August 16, 80M debts in April 17, probably another 100M debts in 18 months. Total debt is 400M when Elliot takes over in 18 months time. 300M loan plus 400M debts. To sell Milan for a profit of 50M, selling price is 750M. Is it possible to sell Milan at 700 or 750M? Elliot is not interested in managing for long term, so why did this despicable but intelligent vulture funds got themself into this tangle?

Im very happy that the new menagement is trying to buy great young potentials instead of older flops.The best buys would be a mix of youngsters and some already proven midaged players.I am really excited to see who will we buy in the next transfer window,a lot of answers will we get if we see which players will be our targets.As for Kessie,hes got a world class potential so its better to buy him than a Bertolacci caliber of players for almost same amount of money.

Most importantly, is Kessie FAR better than LOCATELI? If we intend to bring in a fabregas, niagollan, then i will agree. But then again, if an average pogba commands over $80m , then we should expect these kind of issue
