The Ivorian midfielder could be used in a swap deal with Brozovic
The winter market is still open and Barca are looking at various deals. One is swapping Franck Kessie for Inter Milan's Marcelo Brozovic.
Xavi would be happy with the swap for the Croatian to be able to bring in an extra pivot, but the Ivorian midfielder's people say he is not planning on leaving the club. He is happy in the city and at Barca.
Kessie is not getting all the minutes he wants but feels he has won Xavi's confidence and wants to succeed here.
The player knows it's his first season and that it takes some time to adapt, and he is sure he will play more in the months to come, despite the competition in midfield.
Kessie has played 664 minutes this season and scored a goal, in the Champions League against Viktoria Plzen.
