Official: Barcelona announce the signing of Franck Kessie as a free agent


The arrival of Franck Kessie from AC Milan to Barcelona has been an open secret for a while now, with president Joan Laporta confirming the transfer in a recent press conference, as well, along with Andreas Christensen.

It has now been officially announced, as well as the club’s social media channels.

Kessie has signed his contract as a free agent for four years with a release clause of € 500 million. He is undergoing his trial in Milan and will be presented at the Tito Vilanova training ground on July 6 after signing his contract.

The Ivory Coast midfielder finished his season with Milan at the highest level, winning Serie A ahead of players such as Inter Milan and Juventus. During the season, he has scored six goals in 31 games.

He is an excellent set-piece taker, and is known for his late runs into the penalty box. A technically gifted player, Kessie is also a brilliant defender with a physically imposing physique.
