AC MILAN midfielder Franck Kessie has reportedly NOT yet agreed a deal with any club, despite rumours linking him with Barcelona.
The 25-year-old Ivorian is set to become a free agent in the summer when his deal with the Italian giants comes to an end.
And he has been linked with a move to Barcelona as well as Premier League sides Tottenham and Manchester United.
There have been recent reports that Kessie may be set to agree a deal with the Catalan outfit.
But, speaking on social media, journalist Fabrizio Romano confirmed that while Barca are in contact with his representatives, they have not yet tied him down.
He said: "Franck Kessié has still no full agreement with any club.
"Barcelona are in contact with his agent since December, they are waiting for him – Kessié has not made his final choice yet.
"Race still open, other clubs also interested."
