Juventus and Barcelona Concur on Terms of Kessié Deal

Juventus are making strides in their attempt to lure Franck Kessié, although meaningful hurdles remain to be cleared. It shouldn’t be challenging to find an agreement between clubs, but the Bianconeri have to convince the player too, SportMediaset informs.

The two sides are discussing a loan with a conditioned obligation to buy for €10/15M that could satisfy both. The Blaugrana would turn a profit on a player they don’t plan to lean on and whom they signed for free. Instead, the Old Lady would get a solid contributor for an affordable sum.

Juventus and Barcelona are both in California, but it doesn’t seem director Cristiano Giuntoli will meet Kessié directly. The exec is expected to fly back to Turin before the end of the trip to tend to other matters.

According to the publication, the midfielder hasn’t ruled out the possibility of staying to fight for minutes. Moreover, if he departed, he’d like to move to a top Premier League team. None has shown interest so far, while Aston Villa and Wolverhampton inquired.

Our Take on Juventus and Kessié

Considering the lingering uncertainty about Paul Pogba, they definitely need another elite midfielder. He’d be a bargain at those numbers, but having to talk somebody into joining isn’t a great place to be.
