The Ivorian was presented on Wednesday at Camp Nou and Xavi will be buzzing

Franck Kessie arrived at Barcelona as a direct request from Xavi Hernandez. Joan Laporta confirmed as such in his press conference. 

The president welcomed the Ivorian to the club on Wednesday at Camp Nou.

“I welcome Kessie, his family and his agent. They have worked well with Mateu and Jordi to make this signing possible. The player showed his will to reach an agreement. We’re satisfied because we have fulfilled one of the requests from the coach. We’re matching his expectations, that’s our objective in this transfer market. Franck is one of the midfielders who we missed most, who can arrive in the box and who knows how to protect the defence,” explained Laporta.

The Ivorian will bring some power to the engine room and is a different profile to Pedri, Gavi and co.
