Maldini and Massara have been in the market for a player that can help reinforce the attack. Milan found success with a few players last season, but are looking to add a new weapon that can help for the next season and years to come. The Belgian forward Charles De Ketelaere has been mentioned recently for the Rossoneri and is seen as a viable option for Pioli's squad.
Per CalcioMercato, the 21-year-old Belgian is seen as a concrete goal for an addition to the squad. De Ketelaere managed 14 goals for Club Brugge in 33 appearances this season for the Belgian club. Both Maldini and Massara are fans of the player's ability and appreciate his tactical flexibility. He can play multiple positions in the attack- which will be appreciated in Stefano Pioli's tactical plan.
Those in Milan's front office understand the competition for the player and have already engaged in discussions with the Belgian club. The demand is considered high- north of 30 million, but there is room for negotiation. Maldini and Massara have never shied away from a negotiation and will certainly look for a dicsount for the Belgian.
De Ketelaere's days appeared to be numbered in Belgium. The player has attracted interest from plenty of European clubs- including Leicester in the Premier League. Milan will certainly need to act fast if they wish to add the player to their squad for the upcoming season.
