Barcelona are still in financial trouble.
Both players have received guarantees from Barcelona that the deals will be done and they will be registered. It is only a matter of time they argue but that will not stop Barcelona fans sweating.
Both Christensen and Kessie are available on free transfers after their contracts with their respective clubs expire at the end of this month. Christensen has been at Chelsea since 2013 while Kessie has been at Milan (on a permanent basis) since 2019.
Christensen is expected to bolster the defence at Camp Nou while it is hoped Kessie will add something different and dynamic to Xavi Hernandez’s engine room. Kessie has been a highly important part of this season’s Scudetto-winning Milan team.
Barcelona won't change their plans on Christensen and Kessié. Both deals are already agreed and completed on a free transfer – they can't be registered yet because of Financial Fair Play situation. 🔵🔴 #FCB
Both players have received "guarantees" from Barça. Matter of time.
