Barcelona midfielder Franck Kessie is expected to leave the team this summer, with Juventus being the most likely destination.

And, it is believed that the team from Turin does not want to waste any more time to finalize the transfer since the agreement between the two teams is already in place.

At this moment, despite the fact that the teams are ready to do business, everyone involved is waiting to get the approval of the player. 

And after several days of chasing, SPORT has reported that Juventus’ sports director, Cristiano Giuntoli, is now ready to hold a final summit in Los Angeles with the footballer and his agent in order to close the deal once and for all.

The report adds that in Italy it has been assured that Juventus will announce Kessie’s arrival this weekend and it is only for this particular reason that they are launching the final assault for his acquisition.

Barcelona and Juventus reportedly already have an agreement in place regarding the transfer. It will be a loan deal with a mandatory purchase option worth around €10-15 million. The Bianconeri are willing to make Kessie their marquee signing by offering him a deal worth €7 million per year.

Now, Kessie has always pressed that he wants to continue at Barcelona, but after talking to Xavi, the former Milan midfielder admitted that his continuity makes no sense.

Of course, there is interest from the Premier League, but considering the advancements Barça and Juve have made, this possibility is now ruled out.

At this moment, it is said that the Serie A heavyweights are now running out of patience and do not want to waste any more time on this deal, which is why they now demand a clear answer from the player and SPORT says that they want it in the next few hours.
