The agents of Barcelona midfielder Franck Kessie have denied the transfer rumours linking the 25-year-old to Inter in no uncertain terms.

The former AC Milan midfielder’s agency Ambition Group Sport Management branded the links as “fake news” in several posts on their Instagram account, where they rubbish the reports from Italian and Spanish media regarding the player’s future.

Reports have emerged over the past few days that Kessie could leave Barcelona this month, and that he could be part of a prospective swap deal with Inter involving Nerazzurri midfielder Marcelo Brozovic.

These reports have suggested that the Ivorian is in search of more playing time than he has received since making the switch to the Blaugranas, and that the two clubs are in discussion.

However, the agency representing the player have made clear that as far as they are concerned, there is nothing behind the claims being made suggesting that Kessie could soon move back to Serie A to play for his old club’s city rivals.
