Romano: Kessie signs Barcelona contract after undergoing medical – the details

By Oliver Fisher -

Franck Kessie has signed his contract with Barcelona and he will join them as a free agent ahead of next season, according to a report.

After days and days of speculation, Fabrizio Romano has finally given his famous ‘here we go’. After a verbal agreement was reached between Kessie’s entourage and Barcelona a few days ago, the Ivorian has now officially signed as new Blaugrana player.

Romano adds that the 25-year-old has penned a deal until June 2026 meaning it will be a four-year deal for him, and he will receive €6.5m net salary plus add-ons. His medical has already been completed ahead of the move.

Kessie arrived at Milan in the summer of 2017 when the Rossoneri bought him from Atalanta on a two-year loan with the obligation to buy. He has so far made 214 appearances for Milan with 36 goals and 16 assists, but a new adventure beckons in Spain.

  1. Good for him, he got what he wanted and in his case I can’t say he hasn’t earned it. Has played a big part in turning Milan back into a Champion’s League team and making them Scudetto challengers, will be difficult to replace. I hope fans can get behind him for the remainder of this season because getting on his back now is not going to be productive

    1. Exactly that. He grew up watching Yaya impressing in that Barca shirt, now he has an opportunity to follow his footsteps. For now though he is a Milan player and im sure he wants that serie a title more than anyone. Cheers, no boos

    1. He’s banning himself from Milan at the end of the season, would you rather try to win the league in the meantime or is giving Kessie a 2 month holiday more important to you?

      1. I don’t see him as vital with Bennacer in form. Tonali was about the same in defensive jobs. Tonali-Bennacer should be the pair playing, Kessie is a good backup for 2 more months. Meanwhile, Brozović who could pick a team and salary signed for the same money. Real man.

  2. When the season ends, we’ll wish him luck.
    Now the goal is the scudetto, we need him fully focused and committed with the rest of the team.

  3. 1.Good luck for everything he has done for the club especially last season.
    2.Every player is important but no one is above the club. Everyone is replaceable.
    3.Now that everything is sealed and there’s no turning back just give it all for the scudetto and coppa italia.
    4.Fans can diss him for leaving on a free after the season ends. He is a Milan player for now and hopefully he gives everything in his tank for the last 2 months and leaves on a high.

  4. He is contractually obligated to only stay until end of season. By then, just like any other player in any other league he is free to go or stay depending on what he wants. It really is up to the player. Some choose to renew before contract expires while some don’t and life moves on. Would it be hard to replace him? Yes. But such is the nature of the game these days. Players choose a combination of sentiment and sporting reasons for o sign for clubs and must be respected.

    I hope he can help push us to the title while he’s with us. He has my full support

    1. Why would anyone have your full support after saying to all the fans he will sign the contract and then leave? If you respect and support that there is a problem with you, giving your word meant something at one point in time. Then everybody became snowflakes and their feelings were more important than any moral grounds anyone held. I’m glad he left, I don’t like to see that liar wearing the Milan jersey.
