Kessie bids farewell to Barcelona while anticipating his move to Saudi Arabia
FC Barcelona is on the verge of announcing the departure of Franck Kessie, according to ‘Mundo Deportivo’. The player has already bid farewell to his teammates and is set to join Al Ahli in Saudi Arabia. The transfer will bring in a sum of 12.5 million euros for the club.
As the 2023-24 season approaches, Barcelona might have to part ways with some of their players. ‘Mundo Deportivo’ suggests that Franck Kessie’s official departure from the team is just a matter of hours away. Al Ahli eagerly awaits his arrival.
Kessie has already said his goodbyes to the dressing room. The club plans to make the announcement of his move to Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, as reported by the aforementioned newspaper.
His destination will be Al Ahli, with Barcelona approving the transfer in exchange for a sum of 12.5 million euros. Although the sale hasn’t been formally announced yet, ‘Mundo Deportivo’ explains that this is due to marketing issues concerning the Saudi side.
Arriving on a free transfer a year ago, Kessie has made 43 appearances for Barcelona, with only 16 starts. Now, it’s time for him to seek new opportunities in a different destination. The midfielder will join the long list of players who are swapping La Liga for Arabia this summer.
