The upcoming summer transfer window is poised to be a busy one for Barcelona as they seek to strengthen their first-team squad. However, their precarious financial situation means that they will also need to offload players to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations.
La Liga President Javier Tebas has been clear that the club needs to reduce its wage bill drastically ahead of next season. This means that Barcelona is expected to entertain offers for most of their first-team players. Although they plan to retain the majority.
One player that has been the subject of transfer rumors is Franck Kessie. With reports suggesting that he could return to Italy. Fabrizio Romano confirmed that Inter Milan is interested in signing the Ivorian midfielder. He also saud that they have had him on their radar since January.
“Inter Milan appreciates Kessie, and they already wanted him in January. Let’s see if Financial Fair Play will change the situation in the summer.”
Franck Kessie has previously stated his desire to stay at Barcelona this summer. And the club intends to keep him for next season. However, much will depend on whether they are forced to sell players due to their financial situation.
Franck Kessie Joined Barcelona at the end of 2021-22 season. His curent contract runs out at 2026 and Barcelona signed him as a free agent. Therefore his sale could generate huge profit for the club.
Barcelona is keen to hold on to their key players while also reducing their wage bill, and Kessie’s departure would be a significant blow to their midfield. Nevertheless, they will have to make tough decisions to ensure the club’s long-term financial stability.
