Franck Kessie’s contract has yet to be extended and with January fast approaching, AC Milan will have to make a decision about the midfielder. Ivan Gazidis, the club’s CEO, shared a hint of their stance.
Last summer, Milan lost both Hakan Calhanoglu and Gigio Donnarumma via free transfers, which reflected badly on the club. On the other hand, the wage bill has been greatly reduced and the team is still performing well.
In this week’s lengthy SportWeek interview, as quoted by MilanNews, Gazidis was asked about Donnarumma’s departure. However, he made it very clear that he will not discuss individual situations in detail.
“I don’t like to talk about the case and the past in general. The strength of a club is not in the individual, but in the collective. My mission is to ensure that the club does not depend on anyone. Not even myself,” he said.
However, based on that answer, it is clear that Milan will not give in to the negotiations with Kessie. The ball seems to be in the latter’s court and it remains to be seen what the outcome of the situation will be.
