Atalanta Fully Ready to Buy Out De Ketelaere from Milan

Atalanta and the representatives of De Ketelaere needed some time to finalize their agreement in the summer, while it was easier for La Dea to come to terms with Milan. The Bergamaschi rolled the dice with the Belgian following a disappointing season. Their call has paid off big time so far.

According to Tuttomercatoweb (via OneFootball), the Orobici will most certainly redeem the prodigy at the end of the season. Only something unexpected could prevent that from happening considering his early performances. He has recorded one goal and two assists already. He has looked completely comfortable in Gian Piero Gaperini’s schemes.

As a result, Atalanta are already preparing to hand Milan a €23M check to buy out De Ketelaere. On top of enjoying his production, they believe his value will go up. If he keeps going, he’ll draw interest of major clubs, potentially setting the stage for a future plusvalenza.

The Rossoneri are entitled to €4M potential add-ons and ten percent of a future sale. La Dea and the camp of the player concurred on a prospective four-year contract before the summer transfer was officialized.

Our Take on Atalanta and De Ketelaere

The biggest hurdle was for him to win over Gasperini in practice, something not all players are capable of doing, and find the right role on the pitch. He’s surely benefitting from featuring as a second striker. It’ll be a no-brainer soon enough.
