Barcelona ‘in pole position’ to land Man Utd and Spurs transfer target Franck Kessie as AC Milan star rejects new deal

BARCELONA are in pole position to sign AC Milan star Franck Kessie this summer, according to reports.

The Ivorian is out of contract at San Siro at the end of the season and is expected to leave upon its expiry.

Premier League duo Manchester United and Tottenham have been linked with making a swoop for the midfielder.

But according to Marca, Barca are in the driving seat.

They claim that Kessie favours a move to the LaLiga giants over a Prem switch.

Xavi and Co are desperate to bolster their forward line this summer by signing Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.

But they would also like to add another midfielder, with Sergio Busquets now 33.

In addition to his ability to shield the defence, Barca are also attracted to Kessie’s goalscoring ability.


The 25-year-old star has scored five goals in 17 Serie A outings this term.

United, meanwhile, could be set to require a midfielder in the summer – with Paul Pogba’s contract set to expire.

Although Spurs did bolster their engine room in January, by signing Juventus ace Rodrigo Bentancur.
