Barcelona coaching staff excited by Kessie, Christensen arrivals - insists deals done

Barcelona coaching staff are ready to welcome two Bosman additions this summer.

Despite the lack of a formal announcement, AS says coaching sources inside La Masia insist Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen and AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie will be joining in June.

A member of the coaching staff said of Christensen: "Andreas is a great centre-back, with extraordinary talent; We cannot remain in the anecdote of two punctual failures, but we have to look at his entire career."

AC has committed to a five-year deal with Barca.

On Kessie, the source also said: "He is a gamer from head to toe, but what a plus to win duels and contested balls."
