Leeds: AC Milan ‘trembling’ over Charles De Ketelaere move

Leeds: AC Milan ‘trembling’ over Charles De Ketelaere move -Leeds United News

AC Milan are believed to be ‘trembling’ in their pursuit of striker Charles De Ketelaere this summer, giving Leeds United hope in the battle to sign him.

The Lowdown: De Ketelaere battle continues

It looks like a two-way fight to snap up the Club Brugge youngster in the summer transfer window, with both the Whites and Milan doing all they can to get him.

In recent days, it has looked as though the Serie A champions have been in pole position to sign De Ketelaere, even though Leeds have tabled a big offer for his services.

A fresh update suggests that all hope is far from lost for Leeds, though.

The Latest: Leeds handed De Ketelaere boost

According to Gazzetta dello Sport [via Sport Witness], Milan are ‘trembling’ after talks with De Ketelaere stalled, with the report also stating that Brugge have received an ‘important offer’ from the Whites worth ‘at least’ €37m (£31.4m).

Milan don’t want to bid that high, which is proving to be a key stumbling block, meaning that their chances of signing him are ‘decreasing’.

The Verdict: Big boost for Leeds

This is undoubtedly a significant boost for Leeds in their quest to sign De Ketelaere, with Milan seemingly stalling at an important moment, giving the Whites genuine hope of signing a player who has been hailed by international colleague Radja Nainggolan as an ‘undisputed star‘ at Brugge.

Leeds are clearly willing to offer more for the 21-year-old than the Serie A champions but the key now is whether or not he deems Elland Road to be as attractive a proposition as the San Siro, given the lure of Champions League football in Italy.

Kurzawa at Leeds?

Yes, just what we need!

No, look elsewhere!

No, look elsewhere!

It appears as though Leeds view De Ketelaere as their top attacking transfer target this summer, so to get him now after this ongoing saga would feel massive, particularly with him having scored 14 league goals last season.
