Kessie says goodbye to AC Milan before his expected move to Barcelona

The Ivory Coast international, who has been a major player for the Scudetto winners this season, has written a touching farewell message to fans.

Franck Kessie has delivered a farewell message to Milan fans following the club’s Serie A triumph, as he prepares to join Barcelona on a free transfer.

The Ivory Coast international has been a significant figure for the Scudetto holders in their bid to become Italian champions this season, helping seal a thrilling final-day victory over Sassuolo.

Now, he has taken to social media to say farewell to his fans, ahead of what is expected to be a move to Camp Nou as his contract at San Siro expires.

What did Kessie have to say about his exit?

“After five years, I couldn’t ask for a better way to conclude this incredible journey!” Kessie posted a video montage of his stay at the club on Instagram in both Italian and French.

“It’s a one-of-a-kind feeling – we’re Italian champions! [I am] honored to have worn this magnificent jersey and to have traveled with such wonderful companions! Thank you very much! Thank you very much!”

Will Kessie be joining Barcelona?

Though no official deal has been made, it appears that Kessie will join Barcelona after his Milan contract expires.

For much of the season, the Blaugrana have been linked with a move for him, and that talk has only grown after the Ivory Coast international rejected down a San Siro contract.

He appears to be one of several new faces at Camp Nou this summer, as Xavi aims to revamp his squad from the Ronald Koeman era he inherited last season.
