By | November 20, 2021

La Liga giants, Real Madrid are reportedly keen to bring AC Milan playmaker Franck Kessie to the Bernabeu next year and ready to rival Man Utd for his services.

The 24-year-old’s future stays the subject of many rumours, as his deal at San Siro is following to expire next June, and there are currently no signs that he will be penning fresh terms.

A whole host of teams, including Chelsea, Tottenham, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United, continue to be credited with an interest in the Ivory Coast international.

According to Corriere dello Sport, there is also strong interest from the Los Blancos who believe that he could be a long-term replacement for Casemiro.

The report suggests that AC Milan have now given up on a deal renewal, meaning that the Italian giants could attempt to sell him during the winter transfer window.

Kessie has found back of the net 32 times and provided 15 assists in 196 games for I Rossoneri since making the move from Atalanta BC.

This season, the Ivory Coasts international midfielder has again been a vital player at San Siro despite the rumours surrounding his future, founding back of the net twice in 12 games in all competitions.
