Barça look to speed up Franck Kessié’s departure this week, with the footballer at the center of several offers on the table. Although Kessié did not participate in the last match against Milan, his future seems to be at a point of definition and the Catalan club has asked him to make a final decision.
The midfielder has clear ideas about his situation and is willing to leave the team, but until now he has been waiting for an important offer from the Premier League, which hasn’t arrived yet. Although both Tottenham and Liverpool have shown interest in the player, the only official proposal comes from Juventus.
Kessié, who opened the door to a possible departure a few days ago, has come to the conclusion that his participation in the team led by Xavi would be limited. This is why he tries to find a project in which to recover his leading role in the sector. Although the player has asked to have some influence in choosing his destination, time is running out and if there are no last-minute moves, Barça will put pressure to approve Juventus’ offer, as the newspaper points out. Sport.
Both the Barça club and the player’s entourage have tried to persuade Tottenham to join the bid, but Harry Kane’s transfer process to Bayern has left the market for the London side paralysed. Despite Tottenham’s interest, they have so far not submitted a formal offer. On the other hand, in Liverpool there is also admiration for Kessié’s talent, but for the moment it doesn’t appear as a first option.
They want 15 million
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia’s chances have not increased significantly either, although some negotiations are still ongoing. Barça, for its part, are trying to get 15 million euros for the transfer of the midfielder. In the case of Juventus, a transfer operation is being evaluated with an obligatory option to buy for the same amount, but the player who is out has not given his approval. Failure to participate in European competitions and an unattractive project could hold back this option.
