Charles De Ketelaere prefers Milan to Leeds but the Premier League side is offering more money to Club Brugge.

Milan are working to reinforce the attack and while contacts with Chelsea for Hakim Ziyech continue to be alive and the right formula is being sought, the Diavolo are also working on 21-year-old Charles De Ketelaere on Club Brugge KV.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Milan made an initial offer of €20m plus bonuses for CDK, but Brugge are demanding a lot more and there are other clubs willing to pay more for the young Belgian talent.

The website of Di Marzio claims that Leeds United of the Premier League have offered €30m plus bonuses, while on Sky Italia’s website they claim it’s €37m plus bonuses. Between Leeds and Milan, De Ketelaere would prefer playing for the Campioni d’Italia next season.

However, for a deal to take place, Milan would have to improve their offer and Di Marzio claims that they are ready to try again for CDK with improved conditions. A thing that can help in the negotiations, is the fact that Brugge are interested in Milan Primavera players. There’s again difference in what’s written on Di Marzio’s website, who claims the players Burgge want are 20-year-old goalkeeper Andreas Jungdal and 19-year-old striker Emil Roback, and what’s said on Sky’s website, who say it’s Roback and 18-year-old midfielder Lukas Björklund.

Therefore, Milan could try to include some of their young players in order to convince Club Brugge to accept their new offer. There should be more developments in the next few days.
