Sevilla FC has made up its mind, it will lose Jules Koundé by the end of the transfer window or even probably by the end of July. The former Bordeaux player, Monchi’s new XXL move in L1, has taken on a new dimension since his arrival in Andalusia three years ago for 25 M€. Having become a tricolor international and a safe bet as a central defender in Spain, but also on the continental scene, Koundé is the subject of an incredible summer battle on the transfer market between Chelsea and FC Barcelona. If the financial power of the Blues has made the London club the favorite, recent transfers and the financial windfall made available to Barça make it a very serious competitor.
Especially since Chelsea knows the player’s preference for the Blaugrana club. The Spanish press has also been unanimous for several days, the Frenchman has made the FCB option an absolute priority. Aware of this problem, the English club has passed the second and has even already reached an agreement with Sevilla FC (for a sum greater than 55 M€). Yes, but here it is, as explained by Sportthe Catalan club really wants to recruit Koundé and make him a pillar of its future defense, something that it will not necessarily be able to do at Chelsea where the competition will be tougher.
Sevilla put pressure on Koundé and Barça
According to our information, Barça asked the native of Paris to refuse all the offers arriving on the table of the Seville management, starting with that of Chelsea. Internally, Seville is still starting to get impatient. According to an inside source from the Andalusian club, Monchi explained to the player that if Barcelona don’t make a firm and quick offer, they will do everything to send him to England. Which will not be a tragedy for Koundé who has made Chelsea his plan B for his future.
At the moment, no written offer from Barcelona has arrived from the Sevilla side. But according to our information, Barcelona, who were busy settling the final details of the Robert Lewandowski operation, planned to wake up in the next few hours. As mentioned by the Spanish press last week, a large sum of money and one or two players could be integrated into the deal. To be continued.
