Franck Kessie Set for Saudi Pro League Move: Al-Ahli Medical Ahead

1 min read

Franck Kessie’s transfer situation has taken an intriguing twist, as he is now on the verge of undergoing a medical examination with Al-Ahli, a prominent team in the Saudi Pro League. This comes as a result of the Ivorian midfielder’s decision to leave Barcelona after receiving a clear message from manager Xavi that he won’t be a regular in the upcoming season.

The move signifies Kessie’s transition to the growing number of players who are choosing the Middle East as their new destination, with Fabrizio Romano reporting that the player will have his medical on Sunday, followed by the formal contract signing shortly thereafter. The deal, which was finalized with Barcelona for an estimated fee of €15 million, marks a significant step in Kessie’s career.

For Barcelona, this transfer represents a financial gain, given that they acquired Kessie on a free transfer last year, and now they are making a profit on his sale. Moreover, the club is expected to bid farewell to another key player, Ousmane Dembele, who is said to be on his way to join Ligue 1 champions PSG in Paris.

These departures will inevitably free up some financial resources for Barcelona, but the precise amount they will have available for new player acquisitions is yet to be disclosed. The situation will undoubtedly be closely watched by fans and football enthusiasts alike.
