FC Barcelona continues its impressive transfer window this summer. After Lewandowski or Kessié, the Catalan club will welcome Jules Koundé in the next few hours. Barça and Sevilla have come to an agreement. A transfer largely due to Xavi.
Brick by brick, FC Barcelona is rebuilding a quality workforce to regain the heights. Forget the debts that had caused a lot of hassle for the Blaugranas in the summer of 2021. A year later, Barça can once again look to the future. In a few months, the Catalans have found a quality collective game under the impetus of their young nuggets Pedri and Gavi as well as their coach Xavi Hernandez. All that was missing were elements with high added value to take this Catalan youth to a new level. They arrived in the person of Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, Franck Kessié and Andreas Christensen.
Everything is ok for the Koundé transfer, thank you Xavi!
And it’s not over. On their way, the Catalans will also strengthen their central defense with Jules Koundé. The young French defender of Sevilla FC is coveted from all sides this summer, especially by Chelsea and Barça. But, the Blaugranas will win their battle against the Blues in the coming hours and afford the 23-year-old French international. Fabrizio Romano indeed indicates that everything is finalized in the file and that Xavi counted a lot to reverse the situation.
