Franck Kessie’s agent denied the Milan star was offered to city rivals and Serie A champions Inter amid lingering doubts about his future in San Siro.
Kessie is out of contract at the end of the season and the Milan midfielder is no closer to a new deal with the Rossoneri despite his wish to stay with the club “forever”.
There has been speculation of Kessie’s connection with Inter, while Manchester United, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool and Arsenal have also emerged as free transfer options.
While downplaying Inter reports, George Atangana warned Milan that the 24-year-old Ivory Coast international needed a new deal that reflected his quality.

“A player of Franck’s caliber doesn’t have to be offered to anyone. In any case, I’ve never spoken to Inter, ”Atangana told Calciomercato.com.
“An important player needs a contract that meets his standards.
“There was a formal offer from the club [Milan] and an inquiry from the agent, but we’re talking about numbers that are far from what you mean.
“People have been saying things wrong for too long. I feel sorry for those who read these stories and believe they are true. “
Kessie has been at home in Milan since 2017, having initially been on loan from Atalanta before finally signing in 2019.
After scoring 13 Serie A goals in 37 games last season, Kessie still needs to find the net in five games this season.
