The 25-year-old midfielder’s contract expires with the Rossoneri at the end of this season and a renewal doesn’t seem likely, with the player asking for wages that the club’s management consider to be excessive. He has been a core part of Stefano Pioli’s squad this season.
As reported by Calciomercato.com, Tottenham and Milan have been in talks for a few days now about Kessie and an agreement was reached for a definitive transfer, but the player put a stop to things, not wanting to make the move to England.
Kessie wants to take part in the title race with the Rossoneri this season and he’d prefer to see out his contract with the Milanese club. He’s also hard at work with the Ivory Coast at the Africa Cup of Nations and so doesn’t want to be distracted by transfer news.
