After the failure of the trail leading to Manchester City player Nathan Ak, Chelsea have reactivated the file concerning FC Sville central defender Jules Kound. Aggressive in the negotiations, the Blues could quickly complete the arrival of the French international.
Jules Kound could quickly join Chelsea.
To renew its defensive sector, Chelsea does not look at the expense! After the arrival of Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli for 40 million euros, the Blues tried, in vain, to recruit the versatile defender from Manchester City Nathan Ak.
After the known failure on this file, the London club reactivated an old track: the central defender of FC Sville Jules Kound.
A very close match!
After a first offer, estimated at 55 million euros (bonus included), rejected by the Andalusian formation, the recent 3rd in the Premier League assured that he would come back with a new proposal. And while the Svillian sporting director Monchi is waiting for 65 million euros to sell the French international, The Guardian journalist Jacob Steinberg announces a real rapprochement between the two curies for a total agreement!
With very significant financial resources and an assumed desire to quickly strengthen the workforce at the disposal of manager Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea will obviously pull out the checkbook to afford the former Bordeaux player. A way also for the English team to move forward very quickly in the negotiations in order to get ahead of the other suitors of the Habs, Paris Saint-Germain and especially FC Barcelona.
Kound ready to say yes
And precisely, for several weeks, it has been said that Kound intends to join the Blaugrana after contacts with coach Xavi. But following an already XXL recruitment, the Catalan club must slim down and free up cash to go on the offensive on this issue. For his part, the native of Paris does not necessarily intend to wait and will agree to join Chelsea if the Londoners manage to agree with Sville. An operation on the right track.
