Kessie’s Perplexing About-Face: Why Did She Choose to Stay at Barca Instead?

Barca must trade players during the upcoming transfer window to acquire new additions to the team. Among the most discussed names is Franck Kessie, but the Ivory Coast midfielder has conveyed to the club his desire to remain for the following season. Prior speculation suggested that Kessie may depart from Barca to reduce the team’s wage budget and grant more flexibility for potential purchases. Despite this, the player himself has vehemently denied these rumors and explicitly expressed his intention to remain at the Catalan squad. In addition, Barcelona shares Kessie’s position and thus will not make him available for sale during the summer. Sources indicate that Xavi may personally intervene in convincing Kessie to stay, given the numerous offers he has received. Clubs like Juventus, Inter, and AC Milan have expressed interest, but lack the funds to outright purchase him and may propose player exchanges instead. Unquestionably, Kessie’s future at Camp Nou will command significant attention throughout the summer.
