Chelsea & Manchester United fans panic at Franck Kessie link after Arsenal horror show
The 21-year-old, on loan at the San Siro from Atalanta, has been a regular in Gennaro Gattuso’s side this season, scoring four goals and providing three assists in 25 Serie A starts.
Kessie revealed he dreams of a move to Old Trafford in the future, while he was thought to be in Chelsea’s thoughts as a fresh midfield option for next season, with some dubbing him as the ‘new Michael Essien’.
However, things did not exactly go for plan for the Ivorian during Milan’s 2-0 home defeat to Arsenal on home soil.
Though he showed plenty of energy and effort, his passing was poor and he almost inadvertently handed the Gunners a third after Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey’s first-half strikes as he hoofed the ball through to Danny Welbeck, with Gianluigi Donnarumma rushing out to the rescue.
His performance, and that pass particularly, did not escape the attentions of United and Chelsea supporters – who all seem rather concerned about the prospect of their sides bringing him to the Premier League…
*Warning contains some strong language*
Is this the Kessie being compared with Essien? Bleeeehhhhh
