Barcelona have reportedly offered AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie a contract until June 2027.
The 25-year-old’s deal at San Siro is due to expire at the end of June, and he is widely expected to leave on a free transfer, with the Serie A outfit struggling to match his wage demands.
A number of clubs, including Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain, have been credited with an interest in the Ivory Coast international.
However, according to journalist Nicolo Schira, Barcelona have offered the midfielder a lucrative contract until the end of the 2026-27 campaign.
Schira claims that the Catalan giants have placed a salary of £6.7m a year plus bonuses on the table in the hope of convincing him to make the move to Camp Nou this summer.
Kessie has again been an important player for Milan during the 2021-22 campaign, making 21 appearances in all competitions, contributing five goals and one assist in the process.
