Spanish press reports have revealed the reason behind Al Ahly Jeddah’s delay in officially announcing the contract of Barcelona’s Ivorian midfielder Franck Kesse.
Sources have confirmed that Al Raqa’s administration has reached an agreement with Barcelona to include the Ivorian player for €75m, with him receiving €20m in annual salary with a contract that is renewable for 3 seasons.
For this reason, the people of Jeddah were late in announcing the inclusion of Kessie!
And according to the Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo, the board of directors of the Saudi team has already signed a contract with the Ivorian star for 12 and a half years. One million euros for the Catalan team.
The Ivorian Frank Kessy underwent a medical examination to know his condition well the day before yesterday, on Monday, in Paris, the French capital, before announcing him as Al Raqi’s new player.
The newspaper pointed out that the reason for Al Raqi’s delay in officially announcing the deal was due to marketing problems on the Saudi side, and not a disagreement between the management of the two clubs or the Ivorian star.
