If the transfer of Jules Koundé delights fans and Barcelona leaders, it also suits those of the Girondins de Bordeaux. While the club with the scapular has just been saved from a demotion in National, L’Equipe reveals that the FCGB will receive 5 million euros with the deal for Koundé, not counting training compensation.
When Koundé was sold to Seville in the summer of 2019 for 25 million euros, Bordeaux had indeed negotiated a resale percentage of 20%, which applies with the 50 million euros invested by Barça. Nevertheless, the daily specifies that the 5 million will not go into the Bordeaux coffers, but into those of the King Street and Fortress investment funds. Always a winner.
Jules Koundé has spoken his first words as a Barça player, while the sum that Bordeaux will receive with the transfer of the French defender is known. According to L’Equipe, the Girondins will receive 5 million euros.
