has decided to sell Charles de Quetelaer.
It is regarded as the future of Belgium. Despite his solid physical height of over 190cm, his fast speed and reckless movements stand out. Based on his vigorous activity, he exerts an influence in the front line, and although the main position is attacking midfielder, he is versatile enough to play center forward, left and right wingers, and central midfielder.
He is still young, but he has been active as the ‘ace’ of Club Brugge ever since he was younger. He made his adult stage debut in the 2019-20 season and made the leap as a main member in the 2020-21 season, the second year. He achieved tremendous growth every season, and in the 2021-22 season, he became the best player on the team by recording 14 goals and 7 assists in 33 league games. 안전놀이터
As a result, the big leagues began to keep an eye on him. AC Milan and Leicester City were candidates. From the winter transfer window a year ago, the two clubs pushed for the signing of De Kettelaer. However, due to the nature of the winter transfer market, a quick agreement between the clubs was not made.
Transfer rumors also occurred in the summer. Leicester’s local newspaper ‘Leicester Mercury’ reported that “Leicester plans to offer an amount that exceeds the 35 million euros (approximately 48.3 billion won) offered by AC Milan in the past.” Italian media ‘Il Martino’ also said, “Leicester have the upper hand in the competition to sign De Quetelaer.”
But the final destination was AC Milan. AC Milan, who successfully reached an agreement with Club Bruges, quickly completed the signing. 32 million euros (approximately 44.2 billion won). De Katelaer entered Milan, generating the equivalent of 10th all-time AC Milan.
He was highly anticipated and guaranteed decent playing time. He has played in 26 matches so far, including cup competitions. However, his performance is below expectations. He failed to score a single goal in 26 matches. He only has 1 assist. As his periods of sluggishness increased, so did his standing. I have never played more than 50 minutes in the league since the Empoli match in October last year.
He eventually decided to sell. Italian media ‘Calcio Mercato’ said, “AC Milan is planning to sell De Catelaer, and Newcastle United is showing interest.” ‘Newcastle World’, which delivers news from Newcastle, also said, “Newcastle could be a potential destination for De Kettelaer.”
