Manchester United Have Joined The Battle With Real Madrid And Barcelona To Sign AC Milan’s Franck Kessie

His contract with the Serie A club ends at the end of the season and it doesn’t look likely that he will sign a new deal either.

Two days ago, Sky Italia reported that the 24-year-old’s renewal is ‘increasingly difficult’ due to Kessie’s high wage demands.
