Franck Kessié does not have intentions to leave in January and like this has left it to him know to the directive of the FC Barcelona. The marfileño, linked with possible barters with the Inter of Milan (Marcelo Brozovic) and Chelsea (Hakim Ziyech) has clear his wish to remain this semester to struggle by a place in the XI of Xavi Hernández. In summer, the history could be different, but fault a lot for then.

With alone 754 minutes contested in 18 parties in all the competitions in what it goes of season, the mediocentro has not had a first easy semester in Catalonia. The technical body does not doubt of his quality and commitment, but his performance has left doubts, mainly, in the defensive appearance, that is what the technician egarense more asks him. Mark, recovery and clean exit, what Sergio Busquets has offered with solvency by more than a decade.

For Kessié, the main problem has been his vehemence to the hour to contest balloons and the spaces that is used to to leave for projecting in attack. In the AC Milan was used to to have more freedom, but in the Barça has to replegarse more, especially when the team plays with offensive trident and the pair Gavi-Pedri as you stick. Frenkie Of Jong has won him the game thanks to his mejoría as '5', but the one of Ouragahio does not go down the arms neither much less.

In this sense, the tightened calendar culé can be the best ally for Franck. In February it will be necessary to contest the Europe League and, if the Barça surpasses the 'playoff' and advances to eighth, Xavi of sure will give him minutes in all the fronts in front of the need of dosificar loads . The exits of Nico González and Miralem Pjanic left to the staff with the just in what to mediocentros refers , by what, at the end, his permanence will be a great help this semester.

The party in front of the Ceuta, his best argument

The Thursday, the marfileño completed the one who, up to now, has been his best performance like culé. Two assistances and a so much allowed to the ones of Xavi destrabar a party in which the hangover of the Supercopa Spanish seemed to happen bill. Kessié Has showed that it is not for barters, but to help to the team to try win it everything of here to July. For this opted for going out free of the Milan, descartando better economic offers.
