FRANCK KESSIE’S agent has slammed rumours linking the midfielder with a move away from Barcelona as “fake news”.

The 25-year-old joined Barca on a free transfer in the summer.

But he has started just twice in La Liga since arriving at the Nou Camp.

Reports in Italy have even linked Kessie with a quick exit from Barcelona as soon as January, with former club AC Milan claimed to be keen.

Now Kessie’s agent, George Atangana, has put those rumours to bed.

Atangana told Mundo Deportivo on the links: “They are fake news, totally false.

“Kessie is very happy at Barca and in Barcelona.

“He’s only been at the club for a few months and he’s still in the process of adapting to the team and the Barca style of play, which has nothing to do with the rest of the clubs, and, therefore, it takes time.”

Manchester United were previously linked with Kessie before he decided to join Barca.

But Atangana vowed Kessie will work hard to earn a place in Xavi’s team after turning down other offers in the summer in favour of the Spaniards.

Atangana continued: “Kessie will continue working to earn a place in the team. He is not a player who gives up easily.

“He had other offers in the summer and bet heavily on Barca.”

Kessie has played 12 times in total for Barcelona, but the majority of his appearances have from the bench.
