The top of Europe with Milan has been set as his big goal by the new, “brilliant” transfer acquisition of the “Rossoneri”, the Belgian Charles De Ketelar, a few days after completing his transfer from Brugge to last year’s Serie A champions.
“There was a lot of tension around my transfer, only the moment I held the Milan shirt in my hands I said: OK, I’m a Milan player,” said the 21-year-old midfielder about the difficult negotiation that preceded and ended with Milan paying 32 million . euros (and another 3 million euros in the form of bonuses) to the Belgian champions to “close” the deal.
“My dream is to win the Champions League, I believe that now that I am in this team it is easier to achieve this goal.
I’ve always liked De Bruyne, he’s the best in my role, that of a midfielder, so I always look at the way he plays,” added the young ace and concluded what Milan people told him:
“Before I signed the contract I spoke with Stefanos Pioli, I knew what he expected from me. A few days ago the Milan staff showed me some videos to understand the style of play they expect from me, which I really liked.”
