Maldini makes an appearance on his visit to Belgium to sign Leeds forward Sam De Ketelaere ...

Paolo Maldini has told TuttoMercatoWeb that AC Milan will sign Leeds forward Charles De Ketelaere after returning from a visit to Belgium to agree on a fee.

Maldini, a technical director, and football director Frederic Massara, travelled to Belgium on Wednesday. Their aim is to reach an agreement on a fee with Brugge for De Ketelaere. The player is willing to make a request, but the two sides have yet to reach an agreement.

The Serie A side's reports from Maldinis' visit to Brugge for the 30 million striker were negative. Indeed, prior to Maldinis' remarks, it is claimed that despite the meeting in person, a fee had still not been agreed.

Jesse Marsch has expressed his desire to take his trip to Belgium, causing him to gain ground in Leeds. It's a good start. There's confidence. Are you going to close the deal? Let's try.

Maldini: Confidence is still high Milan will sign Leeds target De Ketelaere.

A problem is to have traveled to Belgium and spent the day with Brugge in order to slug out a contract for the versatile attacker, but have yet to agree on a fee. Maldini does not suggest either way if the two parties have reached an agreement.

If anything, De Ketelaere believes there is still work to be done. It's crucial for him to choose Milan over Leeds, and that's where he ends up. Leeds are prepared to meet Brugges' demands.

The next few days will be interesting. If Milan cannot agree on a fee for the Belgian star by the end of the week, you would expect that Brugge would get weary of Milan's negotiation methods.
