Man United ‘serious’ about making Franck Kessie move: report

Man United interest in Franck Kessie is seemingly heightening.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad is starting to take shape. Slowly but surely, our Baby Faced Assassin is building a nice squad.

Manchester United have multiple top players in each position now, which is the ideal situation to be in when you’re trying to fight on multiple fronts.

There is still one area of slight concern – midfield. In the box-to-box role, Scott McTominay needs help, while Donny van de Beek is struggling and Paul Pogba’s situation remains up in the air.

It makes sense then, that United are exploring their options. One name that keeps popping up is Franck Kessie’s.

The AC Milan star is out of contract next summer, and Tuttomercatoweb have an update for us. Apparently, there is ‘pressure’ on the Serie A club, who are looking to tie the midfielder down to a new contract.

Kessie has emerged as a key player for Milan and concerns are growing as there has been no progress made on a new deal.

That’s where United come in. They’re looking to take advantage of that situation. It’s claimed by TMW that United are ‘serious’ about making a move for the 24-year-old.

To add to that, United’s interest could ‘accelerate’ if players like Van de Beek or Pogba were to depart from Old Trafford.

Signing someone with Kessie’s quality on a free transfer would be insanely-good business, while this is someone whose stock continues to rise. I’d highly doubt United would be the only interested party, mind.

As of right now, Milan and Kessie are a couple of million apart in terms of contractual demands and we’re rapidly approaching the January transfer window. If I’m Ed Woodward, I’m seriously considering sending in some sort of low-ball offer for the Ivory Coast international and trying to get a jump on our potential rivals for his signature.
