Report: Kessie back for Milan

Milan midfielder Franck Kessie has reportedly resumed training early after twice testing negative for coronavirus.

Kessie only returned to Milan on May 16 after he found trouble organising a return flight from Ivory Coast.

He went on to spend time in self-isolation while his teammates resumed group training.

However, Sky Sport Italia states the 23-year-old underwent consecutive tests for COVID-19, both of which came back negative.

Milan midfielder Franck Kessie has reportedly dropped significantly in price over the last months, with PSG and Napoli chasing his signature.

Le10sport in France reports that the Rossoneri could end up selling the former Atalanta man for around €13m, a massive drop from the previous request of around €30m only a few months back.

Kessie is back in Milan

Milan midfielder Franck Kessie is finally back in Italy after struggling to make the journey back from the Ivory Coast.

According to Sport Mediaset, Milannews.it and others, he was able to get a flight to Italy after a week of difficulties caused by various lockdowns and travel bans.

He is the final foreign player who was still abroad for the Rossoneri, arriving a few days after Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

In theory, Kessie should have to remain in quarantine for 15 days before he can return to training.

Kessie late back for Milan

Milan midfielder Franck Kessie risks returning to Italy later as it is reported he is having trouble finding a flight back from Ivory Coast.

Atalanta living the dream

Tonight’s Champions League Round of 16 tie is historic for Atalanta, but Emmet Gates explains their ascent is more than a mere fairy-tale story.

‘Christmas has come early’ was the general feeling coming out of the Atalanta camp in the aftermath of the Champions League draw in mid-December. The competition’s greatest surprise package this season had somehow made it into the last 16, and were drawn against Valencia.

Whilst Los Che will be no easy pushovers, it’s generally agreed that La Dea, and their Spanish opponents, could have got a much tougher draw. Both sides avoided the heavy-hitters, and both stand with a realistic chance of reaching the quarter final.

Politano and Kessie to swap places?

Inter and Milan are in negotiations to exchange players in January, claim reports, Franck Kessie trading places with Matteo Politano.
