Atalanta Schedule New Round of Talks with Milan Reject

Atalanta will meet again with the representatives of Charles De Ketelaere to further discuss his arrival after significant problems arose in the last few days. There’s more work to be done, but the parties resumed talking and made progress Thursday, Calciomercato relays.

The issues are mostly economic. According to La Dea, the camp asked for excessive commissions and wages should the trequartista be bought out in a year. He currently makes €2.2M, while they demanded €3M in the future.

In the meantime, De Ketelaere has reportedly signed off on joining Atalanta. He has realized his time at Milan has come to an end one way or the other. He’s more enticed by the prospect of joining La Dea relative to different destinations. PSV and Lens showed the most interest among his other suitors.

The Bergamaschi had originally booked his medicals for Friday. They didn’t expect hiccups in the talks with the entourage after coming to terms with Milan, but they were obviously forced to postpone them. Their chase is unlikely to continue past the upcoming weekend.

Our Take on Atalanta, Milan, and De Ketelaere

It’d be more of a problem for the Rossoneri, as the terms are fine, than for the Orobici if the deal collapsed. He’s a cherry on top rather than a pivotal addition. If the player has indeed accepted the move, then the other problems will probably be sorted.
