Barcelona have announced that they have reached an agreement with Franck-Jannick Kiss regarding his transfer to the Camp Nou after the expiration of his contract with Milan. The midfielder’s contract runs until June 30, 2026, subject to a €500 million departure.
The club knows that the official presentation of the player will take place next Wednesday, July 6th. At 11, Kessie will sign a contract, and in half an hour he will appear on the lawn at Ciutat Esportiva, where he will take part in a photo session, and at 12:15 he will answer questions from journalists at a press conference. It will be available on Barça TV +.
Frank Casey was born on December 19, 1996 in Oragahio (Ivory Coast). He started his ball adventure at the Stella Club de Adjamé nursery. In the 2014/2015 season, he moved to Europe, more specifically to Atalanta, who loaned him to her Events. He did a great job there and got promoted to professional football. He made his debut for Cesena in the Second Division, where he alternately played midfield and central defence. After a year he returned from loan and under the leadership of Gianpiro Gasperini became one of the best midfielders in Serie A.
Kessie has great shooting skills, so he often gets opportunities to play. Already in the first match in the first team, Atalanta scored a double with the first two shots on goal. Subsequently, he gradually became an increasingly important part of the team. The 2016/17 season was so good for the Ivorian player that after only 30 matches, Milan came for him. In another campaign, he went on loan there, and in the summer of 2019 the Milan team used the option to buy it for 33 million euros. Casey spent five very good seasons with Milan and became a full-fledged footballer. His adventure with the club ended with winning the Italian Championship after an 11-year hiatus. He was one of the players most used by Stefano Pioli.
The new acquisition of Barcelona will be beneficial to it both in defense and in attack. He is physically strong, thanks to which he easily recovers balls in all areas of the field, and can also get out well from under the cover of his opponents. Thanks to this, he scored goals. He is also an expert in executing penalty kicks.
