Juventus presently stand out as one of the most alluring choices available to Franck Kessie
Although the Serie A team may not provide as much money as clubs in Saudi Arabia, it will give him a chance to show off his talent in Europe for many years.
It was revealed earlier this week that the Old Lady considers the Ivory Coast international to be one of the project’s main components should he join. Unsurprisingly, they now view him as a key target, and negotiations are progressing quickly.
Juventus intends to recruit Kessie on loan with an obligatory clause to buy him for €15 million at the conclusion of the season, per reports from Nicola Balice (h/t Forza Juventus). They still need to persuade the player of their project, but they are sure they can achieve it.
The Turin-based side are prepared to match Kessie’s Barcelona pay and are also promising him a guaranteed starting position in an effort to force him to join for them. Additionally, they have already made room on their roster for the midfield superstar by offloading Arthur Melo. The 26-year-old star is currently very low on Xavi Hernandez’s priority list, and he is aware that it will be challenging for him to play next season. His initial preference is to continue serving under the Spaniard’s direction, but the rivalry in Catalonia for the middle of the park is going to be brutal.
Thus, a meeting between Barcelona and Juventus has been scheduled for America to determine Kessie’s destiny as soon as possible. The Italians are prepared to pay Laporta’s €15 million asking price for the star in its current condition. It is uncertain, though, whether the Catalans will be able to delay the payment until the following campaign as the Italians suggest.
