Amid reports suggesting that Barcelona's Franck Kessie is available for transfer, his agent has dismissed the claims, stating that the midfielder intends to stay at the club.
Financial constraints have led Barcelona to consider offloading players who may not feature in their long-term plans.
However, Kessie's agent has vehemently denied the rumours, labeling them as 'fake news'.
It was previously reported that Liverpool, Inter Milan, and Tottenham were interested in signing the 26-year-old, with a price tag of £30million mentioned.
Nonetheless, Kessie's agent maintains that his client is committed to Barcelona and will resist any attempt to sell him.
Xavi had previously affirmed Kessie's importance in the team and dismissed speculation about his departure.
"We're very happy with him, he's putting in some excellent performances," Xavi stated in March.
"He rarely loses the ball, and the timing of his runs into the box is good. He works hard for the team and is generous with his teammates.
"The matches that he's been playing are giving him confidence, he's patient and he'll be important for us. I'm very happy with Frank."
