MILAN- With the headlights off but with the ideas Very clear. The Milan in these days of apparent calm he is working on various deals to strengthen Stefano’s team Pegs. Despite the contract has not yet been officially extended, the technical area duo is carrying out several operations at the same time, and one of the most important reinforcements should arrive on the three-quarters. It is there that the Rossoneri team wants to make a considerable investment in economic and prospective terms. The player who thrills Maldini and Massara the most is Charles De Ketelaere of Club Bruges. He is one of the brightest talents on the European football scene, and in the last year he has also undergone a transformation under the tactical level that has made him very effective in the penalty area. The Belgian class 2001 he is the only player born since 2000 with already at least 15 goals and 15 assists in the Belgian top flight (19 goals and 16 assists in total for him). Numbers really important that allowed the attacking midfielder to attract the attention of many European teams.
More than positive relationships
The Milan he had already followed him several months ago, the relations of the scouts have been excellent and since the month of January there have been approaches with his agent. Over the months De Ketelaere he convinced more and more and now Milan hopes to take him to open a cycle with him in the role of number ten. De Ketelaere early in his career was deployed in the position of midfielder central, he was later moved forward and this year even played as a second striker in the penalty area. If necessary, he can also play the right outside but, according to the experts, it would be a wasted role for a player with a refined touch and his talent. That’s why the Rossoneri would see him as number ten, but Stefano Pegs taught that his players can change their characteristics with work at Milanello and it would not be impossible for a young boy like De Ketelaere.
The big picture
One hasn’t started yet negotiation real with Club Bruges, but the Belgian company has made it known through the player’s agents that the price for De Ketelaere it will be over 30 million euros. Between AC Milan and the representatives of the attacking midfielder there would be no problems for a general agreement on a 5-year contract, the engagement would still be important compared to what he perceives from Bruges, while with the team that plays in the Jupiler Pro League there was just a request for information, but not yet an official offer. Maldini wants to fix other situations first market and then devote yourself entirely to this operation. In the meantime, he hopes to lower Bruges’ economic claims but is aware that a large part of the summer budget could be invested precisely for De Ketelaere.
Lang is there too
Always at Bruges there is another element that interests Milan and it is about Noa Lang, left winger who would like to leave the team this summer to make the leap in quality to a big one. The Rossoneri had an interview with his agent a few weeks ago but for now the operation has been put on standby, also because Milan have both Ante in the left winger position. Rebic but above all Rafa Leao, fundamental elements for the game of Pioli. Noa Lang it could be adapted to the role of playmaker but in that case it would be the second choice after De Ketelaere. The Dutch born in 1999 would be ready for an experience abroad and has already sent clear messages to Milan both on social networks and through interviews. The cost of the card could be lower than De Ketelaere, according to the agents it could be around 25 million euros and this would allow Milan to be very intrigued by the deal, but currently Lang does not seem to be at the top of Maldini and Massara’s thoughts. .
