Milan Highly Unlikely to Cut Bait on Struggling Starlet

Milan aren’t currently considering moving on from Charles De Ketelaere after a disappointing season, even though they are working to bolster the position. The Rossoneri are very close to landing Daichi Kamada on a free from Eintracht Frankfurt.

According to Sky (via OneFootall), the Belgian attacker could eventually find some suitors, but the Rossoneri execs still believe in him and want to give him another chance. In particular director Paolo Maldini, who had previously stated that they gave him a five-year contract and not a five-month one when his struggles commenced.

In any case, De Ketelaere won’t leave on loan, despite some rumors, as he’ll either stay at Milan or be outright sold. Moreover, the club would like to keep his competitor Brahim Diaz, but they don’t want to spend more than €20M to buy him out from Real Madrid.

In the meantime, the higher-ups are defining the final details to onboard Daichi Kamada, who will earn €3M per season, SportMediaset informs. They have also accelerated for Ruben Loftus-Cheek. The Chelsea midfielder is keen on joining. The fee could amount to around €15M.

Our Take on Milan and De Ketelaere

From such a standpoint, he could haven’t have transferred to a more patient team. They waited for Rafael Leao to adapt and flourish for a long time. Moreover, they paid €35M to get him, and dumping him would come at a hefty cost if they really don’t want to loan him out for a season to rehab his value. The two prospective additions would be solid and useful, also considering the reasonable sums.
