For Barcelona midfielder Franck Kessie, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo aren’t even on his list of the best players in the history of the sport. The Catalans secured his signing on a free transfer after the Ivorian refused to renew his contract. The 25-year-old has signed a four-year deal that will keep him with the La Liga side until 2026. At Barca, Kessie is projected to be a significant player. Under Stefano Pioli, the Ivory Coast captain played in a number of roles, including as an offensive midfielder for portions of the season.
