As per recent reports Frank Kessie is being linked to Juventus. The 25-year-old Milan midfielder was offered to Juve by his agent.
The player’s contract expires in June 2022. Kessie being a free agent by t
he end of the season has attracted lots of interest from major clubs across Europe like Barcelona and Tottenham. The Bianconeri management could consider signing him on a free.
According to news doing rounds Milan have offered the player €5million per season that is more than double his current salary. Although an extension of contract with the Rossoneri could still be on the cards but the player’s agent George Atangana is pushing his client to make a move out of the club.
As stated by Nicòlo Schira Juventus are reflecting on a possible move for Frank Kessiè as a free agent in summer. The midfielder has decided not to extend his contract with AC Milan and has been offered to Bianconeri. No official bid by Juventus yet, but only first approaches.
The Milan player could be deployed as a central or defensive midfielder. Frank has made 111 appearances for AC Milan in his career so far and scored 24 goals. In 2021-22 season, the Ivorian player has scored 6 goals and made 1 assist in 23 appearances. The player had a recent history of muscle injury in 2021 season which kept him out for 28 days.
With a squad full of midfielders like Locatelli, Arthur, Zakaria, McKennie and Rabiot, signing Kessi for the starting eleven seems like an impossible option. The only reason the club might be interested is for squad depth.The addition of young players like Rovella and Fagioli suggests the deal is less likely to happen.
Milan selling their important player to direct rivals Juventus on free makes the deal even more unrealistic. Moreover the player’s exorbitant salary demand poses a problem too.
Whether the Kessie deal goes through or not is something to look out for. Although the possibility seems low, the clear picture could only be seen in summer. Max statman would keep you updated on latest news.
