And according to the Italian outlet Calciomercato.comPaolo Maldini and Frédéric Massara, respectively technical director and sporting director of AC Milan, will travel to Bruges on Wednesday.
AC Milan officials hope to find a breakthrough in talks with Club Brugge for the signing of De Ketelaere.
The Serie A champions are ready to offer a €30m fee and meet Club Brugge’s asking price via add-ons.
AC Milan are quietly hoping that a deal will be done and they will get their hands on De Ketelaere.

AC Milan are reportedly ready to walk away from the deal if a deal cannot be reached by the end of the week.
Leeds are yet to end their pursuit and could still look to sign him if AC Milan fail to secure De Ketelaere.
