Last summer, Milan lost two of their main stars who decided not to extend their respective contracts with the club. While Gianluigi Donnarumma joined the high-profile Paris Saint Germain, Hakan Calhanoglu made the short trip around the city and signed with Inter.
At the end of the season, the Rossoneri could be deprived of the services of another influential member of their squad as Franck Kessié appears to be heading towards Free Agency.
The Ivorian’s contract expires next summer, and the Diavolo are struggling to meet his contractual demands – which of course include a significant pay rise.
But even if the 24-year-old leaves Milan at the end of the season, he will not be reunited with Calhanoglu on the other side of town.
Corresponding Calciomercato above TuttoJuve, Inter have decided to pull themselves out of the running for Kessié.
The report claims that the player’s entourage offered the services of the midfielder to the Nerazzurri officials, who had to turn down the proposal due to the player’s high salary demands.
Juventus Turin was also named as one of the clubs that might be interested in “The President”.
It should be remembered, however, that the Bianconeri are working hard to slash their payroll and it remains to be seen whether they are ready to add another high earner to the equation.
