The will of the board of directors FC Barcelona is that the midfielder Franck Kessie stay at the club after January. the one of Ivory Coast He is not having the minutes he expected (5 appearances in the starting eleven of Xavi Hernandez).
The reason given by Barça is simple: despite having essential players in midfield such as Sergio Busquets, Pedro Y GaviXavi would have to use the Ivorian if any of his troops is not available.
Added to this is one of the club’s big problems for some time, the Financial Fair Play. If Kessié leaves, the blaugranas will have to look for a replacement, and the club’s coffers and the rigidity of the aforementioned Financial Fair Play rule do not help.
However, the player’s agent recently met with the club’s Director of Football, mateu alemanyand brought with him three offers from different clubs: two belonging to the A series Italian and another from premier league english.
It is clear that for the player they could be more than interesting options. In addition, we must take into account that Kessié already played between 2015 and 2022 in Italy for the Atalanta Bergamasca Calcio, AC Cesena Y AC Milan (with the latter he won the league trophy in 2022, just before leaving for Barcelona).
In addition, from what has been learned, we would be talking about loan offers, so theoretically the midfielder would return to Barcelona unless a purchase option is presented, so this could mean a new problem if a substitute is found (due to Financial Fair Play).
The situation will be clarified shortly, but what is clear is that Barça is committed to keeping Kessié at least this winter window, since he could also be a useful asset after the return of his teammates who are disputing the Qatar World Cup.
