Real Madrid have joined the list of clubs hoping to get Franck Kessie as a free agent from Milan, after Barcelona, PSG, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United.
The Ivory Coast international is only under contract until June 2022 and the negotiations for an extension are not progressing well.
His agent insists the reports he is asking for €8.5m per season are exaggerated, but it’s suggested they turned down a proposal worth €6.5m per season.
The Rossoneri already lost Gianluigi Donnarumma to PSG and Hakan Calhanoglu to city rivals Inter as free agents over the summer and don’t want a similar scenario unfolding with Kessie.
According to newspapers Diario AS and La Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid are also now contenders to pick up Kessie for free.
They face plenty of competition from Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United.
The midfielder confessed many years ago that he supports Manchester United and would be an ideal replacement should Paul Pogba leave Old Trafford when his contract expires at the end of the season.
