Milan and Kessie reject Monaco

Monaco did make an offer for Milan midfielder Franck Kessie, but Sky Sport Italia insist it was rejected outright by both club and player.

RMC Sport had reported this evening that Monaco were in negotiations for the Ivory Coast international with a €20m proposal.

This would be considerably less than the amount the Rossoneri spent for him, as he arrived on a two-year loan from Atalanta for €8m with obligation to buy in 2019 for a further €24m.

It is therefore no surprise that Sky Sport Italia transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio claims Milan and Kessie rejected the offer as being far too low.

Kessie would only be allowed to leave for a bid in the region of €40m and the player is interested solely in a very big club that would represent a step up in his career.
