The renewal talks of Franck Kessie have dominated the minds of Rossoneri fans over the last week. Multiple reports have come out confirming interest from clubs across Europe, and many wondered how the "president" would feel regarding his future.
La Gazzetta dello Sport interviewed Kessie today, who is on Olympic duty with his country, and the player confirmed his desire to stay in Milan. The whole interview is due to hit the newsstand tomorrow, but here is an excerpt of his statements:
"I am proud to have chosen Milan and it is not my intention to leave. On the contrary, I want to stay forever (in Milan). Now I am focused on the Olympic Games, but when I come back I will fix everything. I just want Milan, Maldini and Massara know how I feel. I love when the ultras sing 'a President, there is only one President'. I want to be one for life, at least in football,".
Negotiations with the player's entourage and club are ongoing, but it is promising to see where Kessie's heart lies. The player is hopeful for an increased salary, and Maldini and Massara will do what they can to appease the "president".
