Franck Kessié finds himself at a crossroads in his Barcelona journey. According to Matteo Moretto, recent developments indicate a potential exit from the club. Despite joining the Blaugrana only a year ago, the Ivorian midfielder has grown increasingly disappointed with the recent treatment surrounding him. Barcelona’s clear message that he does not fit into Xavi’s future plans has finally taken its toll on Kessié, leading him to consider new options in the transfer market.
The relationship between Kessié and Xavi has hit an all-time low, prompting the former AC Milan midfielder to seriously evaluate his possibilities since the transfer window began. It was not long ago that Kessié declined an opportunity to move to Saudi Arabia.
While Juventus is keen on securing Kessié’s services, the player’s current priority is not Serie A. He yearns to explore the Premier League, where no shortage of offers awaits him. Juventus will undoubtedly persist in their pursuit, especially with their new sporting director, Cristiano Giuntoli, seeing Kessié as a crucial addition to their project. It’s worth noting that Giuntoli had previously pursued Kessié when he was with Napoli in January.
Discussions between Juventus and Barcelona concerning Kessié have been ongoing, but the player’s heart appears set on a Premier League adventure. Barcelona demands a transfer fee ranging from €20 to €25 million, potentially allowing for a loan deal with an obligation to buy. As time passes, we will discover whether the allure of the Premier League sparks interest or if other unexpected offers come into play.
