Franck Kessie is ready to get back to work with Milan ahead of 2021-22 and is expected to sign a new deal with the Rossoneri as soon as possible.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reports the Ivory Coast midfielder returns to start training for the new season and close a deal for the renewal at Milanello.
Kessie returns immediately after having lost to Spain in the quarter-finals of the Olympics and is ready to start training without any additional holidays.
“It was an honour to represent my country at the Olympics,” Kessie wrote on social media after the elimination against La Roja.
The midfielder, who arrived from Atalanta in July 2017, has declared he wants to remain at Milan for life and is expected to sign an extension with the Diavolo next week.
The 24-year-old’s current deal expires in June 2022 and Milan are hoping to avoid losing the player on a free transfer next summer, as Gigio Donnarumma and Hakan Calhanoglu both moved on free transfers this year.
Donnarumma ended up at Paris Saint-Germain in France and Calhanoglu will play for local rivals Inter, who have reportedly monitored Kessie’s situation in the fashion capital too.
