Sport: Barcelona out of Kessie race due to ‘exorbitant’ demands – the rejected Milan offer

By Oliver Fisher -

Barcelona have declared themselves out of the running to land Franck Kessie because the AC Milan midfielder’s salary demands are too high, a report claims.

According to Sport, Barcelona have Kessie on their list of targets ​​but since they are experiencing a delicate economic situation they must watch every penny that they spend, especially given that big contracts have landed them in a lot of trouble.

The source claims that ‘it does not seem that the paths of Barça and Kessié are going to meet’ because the economic demands of the Ivorian are ‘exorbitant’, especially given their salary limits. Kessie has in fact already rejected a deal worth €5m net per season and wants far more.

It seems now that several teams from the Premier League and Juventus are the best positioned to sign the 25-year-old even if Barca’s relations with Milan are good and they will stay in contact with Paolo Maldini and co. to see how the former Atalanta man’s situation progresses.

  1. When you know that this muppet asks for more money than Brozović you understand how delusional he is. I really hope the owner of the fund got really mad at him, there will be no further offers and he will play only if 100% necessary.

  2. Crazy how he asked for €8-9 million /year and he doesn’t even have a Scudetto, Champions League, Super Cup, or Club World Cup winner in his resume.

    Heck, he only played really good for one season and this season he have a mixed of bag performance with more lows than high!

    He and his agent can shove those salary demand right back to their ass!
