Milan are reportedly planning to sell at least four players in January, but not Franck Kessié, even if his contract extension with the Rossoneri is unlikely.
The Rossoneri are already preparing for the January transfer window, not just with new signings but also by selling players who have struggled with playing time this season.
Among them, Andrea Conti and Samu Castillejo. The contract of the Italian right-back expires at the end of the season and the Rossoneri could terminate his contract by mutual agreement.
Castillejo has been eyed by Andriy Shevchenko’s Genoa, with the former Milan striker considering the Spaniard as a valuable option to strengthen his squad.
According to Calciomercato.com, the Serie A leaders are also considering the future of Matteo Gabbia and Pietro Pellegri.
The Rossoneri don’t seem willing to sell Franck Kessié in January, even if his contract expires at the end of the season.
The Ivorian star is one of Antonio Conte’s priority targets at Tottenham, but the Rossoneri don’t want to sell him despite negotiations over a new contract are leading nowhere.
Kessié reportedly wants a €9m-a-year deal, but Milan are likely to keep him at San Siro until the end of the season unless they receive a suitable offer for his value.
The Rossoneri don’t want to sell Kessié for a low price tag and would rather keep him at the club until the end of the season as they did with Gigio Donnarumma and Hakan Calhanoglu last term.
