Manchester United set to battle with Barcelona for Franck Kessie

Manchester United are set to battle with Barcelona for AC Milan’s Franck Kessie. Kessie is out of contract next summer and several clubs are vying for his signature.

The agent of Franck Kessie has said that his client will leave AC Milan on a free transfer unless and until the Italian club improve their current contract offer. Kessie joined AC Milan in 2017. He has gone on to make 191 appearances for Milan. Last season alone Kessie made 50 appearances and was involved in 20 goal contributions.

His agent George Atangana has also said that Milan’s contract offer is some way short of their salary expectations. This could lead to the midfielder leaving on a free next summer.

There are still doubts over Paul Pogba’s future at Manchester United. And whether he would sign a new long term deal at the club. Manchester United could replace Paul Pogba with Franck Kessie if Pogba decides to leave. Or could use Kessie as a midfield partner for Pogba.

On the other hand, Barcelona are in a financial crisis and have already signed the likes of Memphis Depay, Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia on free transfers. They can use the same strategy again to sign Kessie. Kessie would certainly meet Barca’s requirements economically. But also add quality and variety to their midfield.

Chelsea, Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain are also scouting the Milan midfielder. Milan have placed a £20 million price tag on the midfielder ahead of the January transfer window. As they look set to lose him on free in the summer.

Manchester United leading the race for Franck Kessie?

Kessie said in 2018 “I like the Premier League and in particular the Manchester United – a team I dream of playing in,” Kessie said in 2018. “Chelsea is also a great club, no one would refuse it, but I always dream of United.” Kessie would no doubt want to play in the Premier league just like his idols Yaya Toure and Essien.

AC Mian have turned their attention to Real Betis midfielder William Carvalho to replace the outgoing Kessie. The deal is likely to be a loan deal with an option to buy.
