Summer mercato 2021
Fabrizio Biasin has launched a verbal attack on Franck Kessie as the renewal situation surrounding the midfielder continues to drag on.

It is now well known that the Milan management are struggling to agree terms over the extension of Kessie’s contract, which is set to expire at the end of the season. Several sources are reporting that the 24-year-old wants €8m net per season to renew, which would be well over three times the current €2.2m he gets.

According to journalist Fabrizio Biasin, Kessie is asking for too much and his words at the Olympic games have just served to add fuel to the fire that has now erupted.

“Do you want to hear a joke? Kessie said a month ago that upon returning from the Tokyo Olympics he would return to Milan to resolve his contractual situation to stay with the Rossoneri. Franck is back, but things got worse instead of getting better,” he said (via MilanLive).

“Kessie is talking agreements with Al-Khelaifi [of PSG], one that makes fun of the whole world of football including his own supporters. For heaven’s sake, it is legitimate to go to a club that makes you earn more, but the way in which Kessie is doing it is inadmissible, playing with the feelings of the Milan fans.”

Because it's PSG and they are stupid ?

Because by doing that, they assure themselves to get Kessie at the end of the season while in January, they'll face competition from other big clubs for example...

Anyway, the whole situation is bad and worse than Donnarumma, because Kessie stated publicly he would stay, etc. That makes him look like a stupid egocentric moneycatcher guy who totally doesn't care about the club finally. It also shows that all the statements he made in the past about money, about him, about Milan, were just communication.

Maybe we could try to sell him to some Russian club wanting to splash some money before the end of their Mercato ?
Give him the "stoppage time treatment".....on th bench and then sub him in the game at the 90th minute to "waste time".
What more disgusting is, he has been treated like a leader for the team. His character and mentality do not suit to this club. Just bench him for the rest of his contract.

I still very much think we should do this.
Screw the guy. What kind of a piece of shit do you need to be to say you love the club and you're not going anywhere and signing soon and then come back with give me 6m. actually 8m. actually 10m. 
I don't blame anyone for chasing money but don't be a complete ass hat about it
Lazzari out for Lazio. That's good news for us, he is an underrated player.

Exactly  , just be upfront and say you want to go. Don't kiss the badge like Benchrumma or anything to sate the fan's just go and give Maldini the chance to get SOMETHING  for you. 

I mean, right now Kessie is a one season wonder. He was there about previously but not consistently good until the season just pass.
If Tonali take the steps he looks to do, he and Bennacer will not be much worse than Kessie- Bennacer. I have enormous respect for Tonali who really shows he love Milan by cutting his wages. Future captain.
According to Tuttosport Kessie has rejected the latest offer from Milan of a five-year extension at €6.5m net per season, which is therefore a total of €32.5m. It is unlikely that Milan will raise this bid, so the risk of losing another player for nothing is growing.
