Ivorian international Franck Kessie snubbed English Premier League (EPL) giants Chelsea and top Italian Serie A side Napoli.
This is according to Kessie’s agent, George Atangana, who told Radio CrC that the central midfielder preferred a move to AC Milan.
The 20-year-old joined the Italian Serie A giants from Atalanta on a two-year loan deal prior to the current 2017/18 campaign.
"Kessie? Big clubs always want to sign top talents and there wasn't only Napoli on him.” Atangana said.
"He evaluated many different offers and projects before making his final decision.
The hard-working midfielder has hit the ground running at Milan - having scored twice in 12 league appearances.
"He chose Milan since it was the start of a new and exciting project," he added.
"They had been following him for some time and they moved quickly to get him."
Milan will face Napoli in a league match at the Stadio San Paolo on Saturday.
