It looks as though the long-running saga surrounding Franck Kessie will end with him starting a new adventure with Barcelona, a report claims.
According to Calciomercato.com, Kessié is now ‘one step away’ from joining Barcelona as yesterday there were new talks between George Atangana – the player’s agent – and the Blaugrana to find an agreement.
Nothing has been signed yet, but the details have been settled and that is why the Catalan side are way ahead of the competition from Premier League clubs, some of whom actually offered a more lucrative salary.
Kessié immediately expressed his preference for Barcelona because he wanted to join a ‘legendary club’ and a phone call from Xavi explained to him how he will be absolutely central to his game plans.
Kessie did not hesitate to give the green light and while contacts will continue to tie up the loose ends, but it appears as though the 25-year-old has made his choice.
