One of the first requests of the culé coach is very close to being fulfilled, the departure of the Ivorian midfielder, marked in red on the agenda, which could be carried out thanks to the Vecchia Signora.
Since long before the end of the previous season, midfielder Franck Kessié has been ruled out of the FC Barcelona, and could reach Juventus. His time at AC Milan was so successful that the Vecchia Signora still consider him one of the best midfielders in Serie A in recent years. For that reason, they will take advantage of the fact that it is on the exit ramp at the azulgrana picture
To complete the operation successfully and in a short time, Juventus have offered Kessié a fairly juicy contract, and thus obtain the yes at once. As for the payment of his signing, they have also put a figure that they can hardly reject in the offices of the Blaugrana team. It all depends on how Matteo Fabris (team manager) handles the negotiations.
Franck Kessié will become Juventus’ highest-paid midfielder
The contract that the Bianconero team offers the African midfielder is much better than the one currently in force in the Barça team. In percentages, it is being said that the 26-year-old footballer will receive double what he earns now. Specifically, the midfielder bills close to 4 million euros, and in Italy those fees will be 8 kilos per year.
Currently the highest paid player at Juventus is striker Dusan Vlahovic with 12 million, and the highest paid midfielder is Paul Pogba (10 kilos). But since the Frenchman will go to football in Saudi Arabia, the one who will become the most paid midfielder will be precisely Franck Kessié. The term of the contract will be 4 years.
FC Barcelona will receive 15 million for Kessié from Juventus
And finally coming to the part that interests the Catalan team the most, the signing would close at about 15 million euros. Of course, the operation would take place until the summer market of 2024, since in the meantime it will be a transfer that links the player and the Italian club. It should be noted that the salary will be covered 100% by Juve.
This measure continues to comply with FC Barcelona’s plan, as the idea was to free up a place in Xavi’s squad, and remove a salary from the salary bill. Transfer experts assure that the maneuver has an 80% success rate, although anything can happen in these remaining days of the market. For now, Kessié is concentrated in the United States for the start of the preseason.
