Ivorian midfielder Franck Kessie has signed for Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona on a four-year deal from AC Milan on a free transfer.

The 25-year-old, who helped Milan win the Serie A title last season, has been described by Barcelona as “the complete midfielder.”

The former Cesena player, who was born in Ouragahio, started his career at Stella Club d’Adjame before moving to Italy in 2014 to sign for Atalanta, and he scored twice on his Serie A debut.

He made his debut for Milan and helped the club to win the first leg of the Europa League qualification match against CS U Craiova on the 27 July 2017/2018 season.

After two years on loan at Milan, Kessie completed a €33 million move to the San Siro in 2019.

Kessie made his debut for Ivory Coast in 2014 and has won a total of 56 international caps.
