AC MILAN AGREE PERSONAL TERMS WITH LEICESTER CITY TARGET
AC Milan have agreed personal terms with Charles De Ketelaere, but they are yet to agree a fee with his current club Club Brugge, 90min understands. De Ketelaere has been attracting interest from across Europe this summer after another season in Belgium. The attacking midfielder netted 14 goals and also chipped in with seven assists last campaign as Club Brugge secured second spot in the Jupiler Pro League. As reported by 90min last month, Leicester had been confident of winning the race for De Ketelaere. However, Milan have now moved into pole position.
Despite being favourites to sign De Ketelaere, Milan are yet to hammer out a deal with Club Brugge. An initial €20m bid was rejected, but 90min has been informed the Italian champions are ready to increase their offer to €30m.
