ESPN: Issue regarding agent commission resolved – Kessie nears Barcelona move

By Oliver Fisher -

More and more sources are now reporting the news that Franck Kessie is very close to officially becoming a Barcelona player from the end of the season.

According to the latest from ESPN (via MilanLive), it seems that the negotiation between Barcelona and the player’s entourage has been unlocked and it is thanks to his agent George Atangana, who has now completed the process to register with the the Spanish Royal Football Federation (RFEF).

Without that membership, Atangana would not have been allowed to collect the commission generated from Kessie’s transfer to Barcelona. The Catalan club were happy to pay the agent as part of the operation but this bureaucratic needed to be resolved first.

Gerard Romero is reporting that Barcelona reached an agreement with Kessie during talks that took place last night and the operation can be considered closed. Romero adds (via BarcaInfo) that he will earn €4m net per season plus €2.5m in potential bonuses, which would be less than the reported offers from Milan.

  1. Barca offered LESS THAN MILAN did! A huge insult on us! Hakan did similar, leaving for 500k extra. What a way to go! I’m short of words!

  2. That’s a dumb move, the only reason he basically left was because his agent got a massive comission. He accepts less in order for his agent to get more. I feel someone is lying or something is going on. And I’ve always had my suspicions that Kessie is lying about his age and his agent has kept that under wraps.

    1. I thought so too. He is probably 29 or 30 now but lying about his age in the past and this agent help him manipulating his age document

  3. Yeah Kessie may be older than he claims but he was committed to the Milan cause in last season. So it is good he is going , now that he is experiencing drop in form. Replacements abound from players on in loan. Once Milan wins the league he deserves a send off .

  4. So if it’s less than what we offer, then (1) agent thinks about himself and (2) player is stupid. Too bad Barce is a usually guaranteed CL team as there are only 3 top LaLiga teams, the 4th being Sevilla
