AC Milan

“The player would like to return to Milan”

There have been some murmurings in the media that a possible return to AC Milan could be explored because Franck Kessie has not settled in well at Barcelona.

The Ivorian midfielder left Milan on a free transfer in the summer but has so far not exactly found himself an instant key player in Xavi Hernandez’s plans, getting very little playing time which has led to suggestions in the Spanish press that he could be offloaded as early as January.

Carlo Pellegatti, a well-known Rossoneri journalist, spoke during a YouTube video and made the shock revelation that Kessie actually wants to come back to Milan, a club where he held the appreciation of the fans and was known as the President.

“Sources close to Franck Kessié’s entourage told me that the player would like to return to Milan. It’s an indiscretion, nothing is certain but this is what comes directly from Barcelona,” he said (via MilanLive).

“When he went to Spain they told me that the Ivorian had chosen Barcelona but that Barcelona were the least suitable team for him in terms of play, the Blaugrana mentality does not appreciate players like him. There they love players with different characteristics.”

Pellegatti continued his video by underlining how much Kessie has is struggling at Barca, a club where he is considered one of many players, while at Milan he was a real concrete pillar of Stefano Pioli’s plans.

“If here he was used to being the President, there he is perhaps considered an undersecretary, always an important position because he plays for Barcelona but there is no doubt that it is a lower position than the President. He is not a fundamental player and he suffers: that’s why I got this rumour.”

Finally, Carlo Pellegatti analysed the actual possibility that Kessie will return to Milan, which seems to be zero at the moment.

“To date, the hypothesis seems to me very, very, very remote. And I use a euphemism not to use the word impossible even if in football, especially in the market, there is nothing impossible. I believe that Milan consider the Kessié chapter closed at the moment.

“It’s probably a mutual thing, but I don’t think Milan aspire to go back to talking to Atangana, Franck Kessié’s agent. We know how much relations have broken down in the last period for the Ivorian in Milan.”
