Done Deal as we can confirm that La Liga giants have officially signed a 25-year-old midfilder as they continue to build a strong squad to dominate the world.
La Liga side, Barcelona could be on the verge of announcing Franck Kessie as their first signing of the upcoming season, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Barça have struck an agreement with the AC Milan midfielder, who has already passed his medical, according to the reliable Italian journalist, ahead of a possible Bosman move to Camp Nou in the summer.
Kessie has agreed to a four-year contract for around €6.5 million per year before add-ons. The deal has been “Here We Go”-ed by Romano, which normally implies an announcement is on the horizon.
By no means is Kessie a typical number six. His unique blend of aggressiveness, physicality, and offensive talents, on the other hand, could give more variety to the Barcelona midfield in the long run, providing Frenkie de Jong and Pedri with a solid new teammate.
One may speculate about de Jong’s possible departure next summer, but Xavi has made it clear that he would not let the Dutchman to go, having already blocked his exit in the January transfer window. For the past four and a half years, Kessie has been at AC Milan.He has almost 200 competitive games for the Rossoneri and brings a great deal of experience to the table, which might be crucial for Barcelona as they aim to start a new era under Xavi Hernandez.
