BARCELONA president Joan Laporta has all but confirmed the signings of Chelsea centre-back Andreas Christensen and AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie.
The two are out of contract in the summer and have been able to speak to foreign clubs since January.
Denmark international Christensen was strongly linked to a move to the Nou Camp because he is looking for a new challenge abroad.
It has even been said that he is so keen to join the Catalan club, he has turned down offers from other English sides due to his loyalty to Chelsea.
Thomas Tuchel has already spoken about Christensen’s impending departure where he stated he was “not happy about it”.
in the meantime Barca made bringing Kessie to Spain their top priority as they tried to beat Arsenal and Manchester United in the race for his services.
It was reported earlier this week how the Blaugrana had reached a total agreement with the Ivory Coast international.
And there were even claims Kessie underwent a medical where he is said to be pocketing £105,000 a week.
Barka President Laporta has now announced that the club have signed two players for the next term, although he has not said who.
He said RAC1: “We have completed two new signings for next season.
“One is a midfielder, the other a centre-back.
“But I’m not allowed to give their names.”
Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano commented on his statements tweeted: “Of course Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen’s deals are both fully agreed.”
Laporta also commented on possible deals to sign Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland but downplayed the addition of both players.
He said: “Haaland or Mbappe to Barca?
“The terms I was told on those two deals… we would never accept spending those sums, no way. I see them both very far from Barca.”
