Franck Kessie should not think about leaving Milan for clubs that “aren’t of a higher level”, according to former Rossoneri midfielder Massimo Ambrosini.

The Ivory Coast international is reportedly keen to leave Milan as a free agent when his contract at San Siro expires at the end of June.

Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are rumoured to be eyeing the midfielder, who is now into his fifth season at San Siro.

The 25-year-old has yet to agree a new deal with Milan, amid reports he is seeking a salary of around €8million.

Stefano Pioli’s side are second in Serie A, four points behind reigning champions and rivals Inter after the opening 19 matches.

Ambrosini won four Scudetti and two Champions Leagues during his 18-year playing career with the club.

The former midfielder has urged Kessie to consider the prospect of joining a club that might not be able to compete at the same level as Milan.

“I have every respect for the professional decisions of fellow players,” Ambrosini told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“All I can say is that these clubs who can offer a higher salary aren’t of a higher level than Milan.

“The chance to bring home €8m rather than €6m should not be the priority if you are otherwise happy where you already are.

“He shouldn’t think of Milan as a club of a secondary level.”

Kessie has played 159 times for the club in Serie A since initially joining on loan from Atalanta in June 2017, with Napoli’s Piotr Zielinski the only midfielder in the Italian top flight to register more appearances since then (163).
