As reported Catalonia Radio, Franck Kessie is the new great desire of the FC Barcelona for the next season. This news is not surprising given his contractual situation and the club’s need to add more talent to its rotation in the short term.
The intention of the Barça team is the incorporation of a midfielder who can play as a midfielder and who has a career, that is, who has experience in the elite and who can cover a good amount of the pitch with and without the ball. That he can act as a corrector in defensive transitions and that, at specific moments, he can let go to step on finishing zones. And the main candidate for Mateu Alemany and Joan Laporta is Franck Kessié.
The new wish of Laporta and Alemany
The 25-year-old Ivorian midfielder ends his contract with AC Milan in the summer of 2022 and has no intention of renewing it because he wants to make a leap in quality to a more important team today and be able to receive a good signing bonus against the possibility of arriving free to any club.
Catalunya Radio confirms that the negotiations with the footballer are advanced, but they are not yet closed due to the fact that several important clubs in Europe are following in his footsteps to add him to their squads. Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Inter Milan have knocked on his door in recent weeks.
Kessié has a direct relationship with Mino Raiola, Haaland’s agent and friend of Joan Laporta. He is not his direct representative, but he was one of those responsible for his arrival at AC Milan at the time. A positive point so that the operation can be closed in the short term. Is it a signing that excites the Blaugrana fans? Will it give Xavi’s team a plus?
