Sport: Barcelona unable to register signing of Milan midfielder due to financial issues

By Oliver Fisher -

The financial situation at Barcelona is preventing them from registering new signings including Franck Kessie, according to a report.

According to Sport (via MilanNews), the Blaugrana have already secured agreements with both Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen and midfielder Franck Kessié but have not yet presented or announced the transfers because at the moment they cannot register new players.

This is the cause that led to a delay in the announcement of the renewal of Sergi Roberto and in the negotiations for the signing of Robert Lewandowski, so they must clear some space in order to add to their squad.

Kessie for his part has already said goodbye to Milan but he made sure that he would have the final say as he scored the last goal of the season, making it 3-0 with a sweet side-foot finish to essentially win the Scudetto for the Rossoneri before half-time following on from Olivier Giroud’s brace.

  1. “The plot thickens”…from President to unregistered player (third choice behind Lewandowski/Christensen).
    Good luck on the registration Kessie

  2. LOL. Now THAT’S how you do business! Buy, buy, buy! Pay, pay, pay! Unless you got money. And apparently Barca doesn’t. Good luck Cashie getting you salaries on time each month. 😀

  3. I assume they’re trying to offload De Jong so they can afford to register these. If they can’t, then they’ll be able to register them if Dembele leaves.

    Their accountants must really be working overtime though!

    1. Depends who, they can get Kessie, Lewa and Christensen paid from the Dembele salary. Lewa earns double from Dembele, I doubt he will reduce his salary by that much. Lewandowski is probably impossible for them because they don’t have money for wages, let alone the 50M fee Bayern is asking.

  4. Bye2 cashie, you are just a stepping stone in order to make milan champions again in ucl, just like dollarumma & calhanotglue. Please do not regret your future

  5. Yes ooooh this how it is for people’s selfishness.kessie now poison to our squad.pls go and don’t come back

  6. Mr president,if this is really so I hope Milan don’t have any mercy on you.i like you as a player but you shall now kick ball in the streets.
