De Ketelaere More Seriously Pondering Early Milan Exit

The departure of Charles De Ketelaere has started to gain traction, although the suitors will have to convince him to switch sides. He’s not entirely convinced to leave Milan after just one lackluster season, Relevo informs.

The Belgian midfielder has yet to make the call on his future. Some meetings to orchestrate the move will take place after the Rossoneri’s American trip, which will end soon. He’s not inclined to bolt at this stage. Though, the situation is more fluid than in previous weeks.

De Ketelaere is drawing interest from multiple clubs: Real Sociedad, a second Spanish side, a German one, and especially an Italian club, the outlet points out. Atalanta were attached to the 22-year-old in the past.

Milan need to cash in €28M to avoid a loss in their balance sheets. They paid €33.5M a year ago. A loan with an option to buy would reduce the sum but also not guarantee a permanent sale. The Rossoneri have moved away from a scheme featuring a no.10.

Our Take on Milan and De Ketelaere

Despite some more time and practices under his belt to get acclimated, he still looked like a fish out of water in their friendlies. Their new tactic does him no favor. Even though selling him seem a hasty move, they risk doing more damage by holding onto him.
