Kessié’s future could be resolved after Barça’s return from the U.S. tour. The footballer is already clear about his role in the squad and begins to see that his best option is to leave this summer. Juventus are pushing, but the emergence of Tottenham could change everything. Next week the English club will decide whether or not to undertake the signing operation, but they are serious about the player.
Tottenham is awaiting the departure of Harry Kane to use the money that will enter to revolutionize its squad. SPORT already explained that the English club, through an intermediary, asked about the situation of Kessié a few days ago and showed its interest to avoid closing anything with Juventus. Now ‘The Times’ confirms that the player is on the transfer list as they see him as a market opportunity.
Barça, in this case, has always been very clear. He wants a transfer of a minimum amount of 15 million euros and has the player on the market. Juventus offered a loan with a mandatory purchase option if the team qualified for the Champions League and Barça wants there to be no clauses but to ensure the sale. An agreement could be reached, but Kessié sees nothing clear to return to Italy.
The appearance of Tottenham could unravel his exit provided an economic agreement was reached. In Barça, there is no hurry, aware that the market can explode in the coming days with the sales of Kane, Mbappé, and some other crack so the money will be moved. Meanwhile, Kessié will continue to play although he knows that this year he will have few minutes if he stays as a Blaugrana.
