Quoted by Antara from Italian Football, Sunday, AC Milan has prepared a fund of 35 million euros or around Rp. 529 billion including bonuses for landing Ketelaere.
AC Milan’s offer is just a few million less than that made by Premier League side Leeds United, but the Rossonerri are confident enough to win the competition for the Belgian.
This is inseparable from a personal agreement between AC Milan and Ketelaere that the 21-year-old player will be tied to a five-year contract with a value of 2.5 million euros (about Rp37 billion) per season.
Currently, AC Milan are waiting for a response from Club Brugge regarding their offer, but it is believed the Belgian club will focus on the Belgian Super Cup match against Gent before finally responding to an offer from the Rossonerri.
De Ketelaere is currently one of AC Milan’s main targets, especially coach Stefano Pioli needs a midfielder who can add sharpness to their attack line.
Currently, AC Milan cannot rely too much on midfielder Brahim Diaz whose performance often goes up and down, in addition, they also lose Franck Kessie who is reluctant to extend his contract and chooses to leave for Barcelona.
The Belgian made 49 appearances for Club Brugge in various competitions last season and contributed 18 goals and 10 assists from a total of 4,138 minutes played.
Charles De Ketelaere still has a contract with Club Brugge until the summer of 2024. He has made 120 appearances and contributed 25 goals and 20 assists in various competitions with the club.
