Franck Kessié’s contract will be expiring at the end of the season and the Milan midfielder is no closer to re-signing with AC Milan, despite voicing his desire to remain at the club “forever”.

On this ground, speculations are ongoing that the Ivorian might be joining Inter Milan, however his agent George Atangana has debunked the rumours.

He also warned that the Milan 24-year-old Ivory Coast international requires a new deal that reflects his quality.

“A player of Franck’s calibre does not need to be offered to anyone. In any case, I have never spoken to Inter,” Atangana told Calciomercato.com.

“An important player needs a contract that is up to his standards.

“There was a formal offer from the club [Milan] and a request from the agent, but we are talking about figures a long way off what you are referring to.

“For too long people have been saying things in the wrong way. I am sorry for those who read these stories and believe them to be true.” he concluded.

The Ivorian International midfielder, Kessié’shas called Milan home since 2017, having initially joined from Atalanta on loan before signing permanently in 2019.

He’s yet to score a goal since the inception of this new season after 5 games.
