Swap deal: Kessie- Ndombele?

This summer, Milan allowed themselves to be left without compensation after Hakan Calhanoglu and Gianluigi Donnarumma left the club, players from whose transfers they could potentially earn around 100,000,000 euros. The management is struggling with the extension of Franck Kessie's contract, it smells like another departure that will not bring the Rossoneri a single cent, but the salvation could be a swap deal with Tottenham.

According to the allegations from England and the Apennines, the London club is ready to include Tanguy Ndombele in the swap deal in January. Of course, at this moment, Paris Saint-Germain is in the pole position for the eventual signature of the national team player of the Ivory Coast.

It is rumored that Kessie does not want to agree to Milan's 6,500,000 euros (currently earns 2,200,000) and demands 8,000,000 a year (plus bonuses of 2,000,000), knowing that this is too much for Milan because he wants to negotiate freely with PSG So, Milan has a burning problem with the extension of cooperation, Tottenham would like to get rid of overpaid Ndombele, who is obviously not in the plans of the new coach Nuno Espirito Santo since he did not play a minute of this season under his baton.

A swap deal could be a win-win solution. The difference is that Rossoneri would like to keep Kessie, which is shown by the offer for a big salary increase. But as it goes, the sports sector composed of Paolo Maldini - Frederic Massara could expand its horizons.

Ndombele Ndombele was paid to Lyon 60,000,000 euros two years ago, and regardless of the fact that his mandate in London is not bright, he does not lag behind Kessie in terms of football qualities. This summer, Barcelona and Bayern were interested, and a potential swap deal with the Bavarians was mentioned, as part of which Corentin Tolisso would go to the new White Hart Lane, but the Frenchman still stayed in his club.

Ndombele has made 75 appearances for the Spurs since 2019 with eight goals and eight assists, and Kessie has played 184 games for Milan with 30 goals scored and 15 assists. However, since he arrived, he was the penalty taker of the Rossoneri.

However, it will be difficult for the Ndombele-Kessie swap to come to life if the former Atalanta midfielder intends for Paris to be his next stop. There is no argument by which Tottenham could make an advantage over the glittering stage of the French capital and the Dream Team of Parisians with Messi, Neymar, Di Maria, Ramos, and former teammate Donnarumma.
