Milan move forward for Leeds target De Ketelaere: The details

Milan are refusing to give up in their chase of Leeds United target Charles De Ketelaere and they’re ready to include some youth talents in the deal.

The Rossoneri’s previous offer for the 21-year-old Belgian forward was significantly lower than their Premier League rivals, who reportedly bid €30m plus add-ons. Despite their previous bid being €10m behind Leeds’, they’re refusing to give up on De Ketelaere.

As reported by Calciomercato.com, negotiations between Milan and Club Brugge have been going on constantly and during the talks it emerged that the Belgian side were fans of youth prospects Andreas Jungdal and Emil Roback. The pair could therefore be included in a deal for De Ketelaere, giving the Rossoneri a route to success.

Talks are now ongoing and the Milanese club could fully beat out Leeds in the coming days, with both clubs desperate to secure the 21-year-old talent’’s signature. Last season, De Ketelaere scored 18 goals and provided 10 assists in 49 appearances across all competitions.

  1. I’d like to see more talents like this go to mid level clubs and grow rather than always to a top team, it gets boring. I wanna see some superstars develop at leeds or villa or union Berlin, those kinda decent mid level, euro 2/3 levels. Otherwise they go sit on a bench and waste too much time, how many top youth have now bailed from Man City, it’s sad. But when you have a manager like pep you have to buy success or be a generational youth.

  2. @Chris Do you even watch Serie A? What is the Milan team? Théo, Leao, Tomori, Tonali.. These are top level guys that are playing at Milan and developed like crazy. Either you mean to say that Leeds and Milan are on the same level or you mean that at Milan he can’t develop as we are a “top team” playing in Champions league etc…

  3. hope this deal goes true De Ketelaere for milan it is agood sign for milan persempre

  4. wecan probably use this guy as our kaka….his movements, creativity and eye for goal is just wonderful.
