Jules Kounde (23) has never been so close to FC Barcelona! The reversals of the situation on this hot issue of the summer transfer window 2022 are therefore well and truly over. An announced time leaving in the direction of Chelsea, and this while Barça had made him their main priority to strengthen the central hinge of Xavi Hernandez, the French defender should finally engage with the Catalans, to whom he gives his priority.
As we explained to you on Saturday that FCB had moved up a gear to overtake Chelsea, also in search of new defensive elements after the departures of Antonio Rüdiger and Andreas Christensen, SPORT ensures this Sunday that the tricolor international will join the Blaugranas against a check for 50 million euros (+ 10 M € bonus).
Barça agree with Sevilla for Kounde
The reason ? The culés leaders have simply reached an agreement with Sevilla FC for the transfer of Jules Kounde, still according to the Catalan daily. Information that confirms in any case the turn of events in recent hours for the former player of the Girondins de Bordeaux. The rest should be just a formality.
As mentioned a little earlier on our site this Sunday, Jules Kounde had already agreed with the Catalan team around a four-season contract. Xavi, who played a decisive role in this case after convincing his management to be patient, is already rubbing his hands at the idea of having a defender in his ranks who has forged a solid reputation in the Spanish championship.
