The saga with Charles De Ketelaere has been going on for quite some time at this point, and it seemed only this morning that Milan had taken steps back in their pursuit of him. Despite this, the Rossoneri remain optimistic that they will be able to strike an agreement.
The Serie A club AC Milan is on the lookout for a playmaker at the moment, and they have De Ketelaere pegged as their top target in this regard. The Rossoneri have made an offer of €32 million (with bonuses), which is now being negotiated with Club Brugge. However, neither party has agreed on the transfer cost.
A report suggests that AC Milan has an improved offer ready to be made to Club Brugge to continue their pursuit of signing Charles De Ketelaere. These efforts are not yet complete.
According to what was reported by the Belgian broadcaster RTL Sport (via SempreMilan.it), the chances of seeing De Ketelaere at Milan are not over as the Rossoneri have a new offer ready worth €33 million plus a percentage on the player’s future resale.
A new offer for Charles De Ketelaere
Milan is now confident that with this offer the green light will finally arrive, which could see De Ketelaere become a new Rossoneri player as soon as this week. This comes after the last refusal from the Belgian champions, who are now confident that with this offer the green light will finally arrive.
The percentage of the player’s potential future resale may be the missing piece of the puzzle that will finally get the long-awaited yes from Belgium. In the meanwhile, a deal on personal terms has already been struck with the 21-year-old playmaker, and he will earn €2.5 net every season at Milan for the following five years if he decides to join the club.
Daniele Longo, a reporter for Calciomercato.com, claims that after an afternoon of contemplation Milan is evaluating a raise to €32 million fixed base plus a percentage on future resale for De Keteleare as a ‘last effort.’ Longo claims that this is happening after Milan have spent the afternoon thinking about the situation. This player is doing all in his power to win over his club’s support.
AC Milan are the biggest club in Italy

Please, no more news about "confident" we (Milan fans) are tired of reading the same news. Just tell us when the deal is off or if is a done deal.
