Although Kessie is intent on getting the attention of Barcelona head coach Xavi with his training schedules, the club currently also considers him as one of the assets that they can sell to improve their dire financial health.
As he has scarcely been able to get on the pitch, he will be subject to a sale if a good offer comes for him, even though he does not want to leave the club at this point in time.
Memphis Depay is in a similar situation to Kessie at Barcelona, but has refused to leave the club earlier this year. Thus, Kessie can be used by the club as a bargaining chip, which they can sell him in order to manage their other important operations like contract renewals of Gavi, Alejandro Balde, and Ronald Araujo.
FC Barcelona has already managed to get an offer of over €15 million from the Premier League side, Tottenham Hotspur as per recent reports from SPORT. His remarkable physical attributes and the ability to play well in open spaces make him particularly well-suited to the Premier League style of play.
Furthermore, Tottenham and Barcelona have already conducted business this season, in the form of Clement Lenglet’s loan to the London club.
