AC Milan has extended the deadline for De Ketelaere to Atalanta

AC Milan has agreed to allow Atalanta extra time to decide whether or not to exercise their option to buy Charles De Ketelaere, according to a report.

According to Sky, AC Milan has allowed Atalanta the opportunity to sign De Ketelaere on a permanent basis until June 20, although the original deadline – as specified by league rules – was midnight on June 14.

Despite a successful season, Atalanta has yet to sign the Belgian because the club’s management wants to negotiate a concession from Milan on the €22 million fee agreed upon just under a year ago.

He arrived in Italy in the summer of 2022 as the marquee signing of Milan’s post-Scudetto summer window, but failed to score in his debut season, therefore he was loaned to Atalanta to regain confidence.

Under Gian Piero Gasperini, he scored 14 goals and 11 assists in all competitions, scoring in each and leading La Dea to a memorable Europa League victory.

It should be noted that Sky reported earlier today that the Rossoneri are refusing to give any concession on the €22 million agreed upon, citing his excellent season and potential.

AC Milan set deadline for Atalanta BC to purchase Charles De Ketelaere

There have been revisions to the deadline for Atalanta to activate the buyout option for De Ketelaere.

The Lega Calcio’s regular deadline is June 14, but Milan has extended it until Thursday, June 20.

Last season, the Belgian player was on loan in Bergamo and performed admirably (14 goals and 11 assists across all competitions). It seems like Atlanta would like to buy him permanently. They alerted Milan that they wanted a discount on the previously agreed-upon terms, but no formal action was taken.
