Barcelona star agrees to leave Xavi’s squad this summer

Ivorian midfielder Franck Kessie has agreed to leave FC Barcelona this summer.

This means that the Ivory Coast international would have spent just one season at Camp Nou, having joined the Catalans from AC Milan last summer.

According to Spanish journalist Gerard Romero, Kessie has agreed to leave the Blaugrana, and this happened after he spoke with manager Xavi Hernandez over the phone.

He joined the Catalans from AC Milan on a free transfer last season.

He signed a four-year deal with Barcelona but failed to become a regular starter last season.

He now looks set to depart, with Atletico Madrid and Saudi giants Al-Ahli and Al-Nassr reportedly showing interest.

According to Sportskeeda, Romero said that the midfielder is very grateful for Barcelona but has now accepted that he will leave.
