Journalist claims Kessie’s ‘contract has already been signed’ with Barcelona and gives background

By Oliver Fisher -

Franck Kessie has already signed his contract with Barcelona and he will join them ahead of the 2022-23 season, according to one journalist.

MilanNews spoke to Juan Jiménez of Diario AS about the rumours emerging from Spain suggesting that Kessie will become a new Blaugrana player. He claims that Barcelona sources ‘have confirmed that the contract has already been signed’.

He adds that talks between Barca and the Ivorian midfielder hae ‘existed for months’ as the Catalan side viewed him as an ‘opportunity’ because he is ‘a type of midfielder who does not exist in the team’.

There are not many specifics available just yet regarding the terms of the deal such as salary, bonuses, commissions and contract length, but Barcelona have moved early to secure a future asset for the midfield.

Jimenez states that they wanted to sign a physical midfielder because Sergio Busquets could leave the club in 2023 and Frenkie De Jong could also depart.

  1. We have no animosity towards Kessie whatsoever. If you don’t believe in the shirt and the future prospects of this team, or if you think you’re not getting what you deserve, by all means safe journey and thanks for your service.
    As a Milanista, I wish for him to stay, but the club is acting in the right manner..

    Also, if you notice, the club (i.e. Maldini, Pioli and co.) are always sidestepping the questions in the media, so they can protect the player and make sure he’s focused on the remainder of the season. Just like they did with Donnarumma.
    I only hope Kessie acts with dignity and honesty towards the fans, at the end when he leaves.

  2. He is the last product from chinese owner Yong Hong Li. He come as mercenary because Fassone sign him with more money while AS Roma has agreed deal with Atalanta and his Entourage, it is steal sign from Fassone in last hour. And now he will leave as mercenary too
