The Ivory Coast midfielder claimed he wanted to remain at Milan in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport in September, but the Serie A giants have faced a different reality during negotiations with his agent George Atangana.
Kessié is on a €2.2m-a-year deal at Milan and demands a new €8m-a-year contract.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Kessié’s agent has requested an even higher €9m salary.
The Serie A giants have offered their midfielder a €6.5m deal, but the former Atalanta man is unwilling to accept.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, both PSG and Tottenham are monitoring the 24-year-old, but it remains to be seen if they will meet his economic demands.
Kessié’s performances have dropped this season. He has scored three goals in 19 appearances across all competitions this term, while he managed 13 in 37 appearances in 2020-21.
