“good news”; Watch Italian Fabrizio Romano send message to Chelsea over Jules Koundé Shocking transfer decision
Chelsea development interest and have seen follow up on Sevilla and French Defender, Jules Koundé to further tighten their defence in the summer
Chelsea offered Sevilla very good payment terms and overall structure of the deal, but are still waiting for the green light. Chelsea believe that they have ‘done the best they could’ for both Jules Koundé & Sevilla.
Chelsea are waiting for the final step – they consider the deal ‘almost ready’ with Sevilla but they need the final green light.
Kounde has decided to join the team in Portugal because the deal was not yet complete with Chelsea.
Barcelona keep pushing for Jules Koundé but they have not made a bid, only talking to Kounde’s agent.
Chelsea have already agreed a €65m deal with Sevilla for Jules Koundé but the structure of the bonuses is still being worked at and that’s why it’s not yet official. They expect everything to be resolved in a few hours.
The blues now believe they’ve won the race for Jules Kounde. Barca still haven’t formally bid and accept they can’t match Chelsea’s offer. Sevilla & Chelsea have an agreement with only minor points being finalised.
Chelsea are in advanced negotiations with Sevilla and the expectation from sources close to the deal is Kounde to Chelsea will be fully finalised in the coming hours.
Chelsea have sent paperworks to Sevilla for Koundé deal during the night, pushing to get it over the line. Details after bid on Wednesday: £55m deal, 5 year contract.
Chelsea expected to sign Jules Kounde later today for £55m. The impending arrival of Kounde could trigger an exit for Cesar Azpilicueta, who is a target for Barcelona as they have done everything they can to sign Jules Koundé, for a deal around £55m, 5-year contract and are pushing to wrap up the deal in the next hours.
Barça practically RULE OUT the signing of Koundé. At Barça they see it’s almost impossible now to sign the Frenchman and is now close to Chelsea and Sevilla will not accept anything less than Chelsea offer
FC Barcelona never made an offer to Sevilla for Jules Koundé; now, the club wants to strengthen the defense by signing other players. Azpilicueta is still a goal.
There are hours left for Sevilla to make Kounde’s transfer to Chelsea official. Everything else is smoke from Barcelona. It is absolutely false that the player [Koundé] has asked Sevilla to wait for Barcelona’s offer to arrive.
According to Sevilla sources, Kounde has traveled with the team because he does not want to be idle while they resolve negotiations with Chelsea, which are very advanced, they say. Barcelona has not asked for anything nor contacted Sevilla to sign the player.
At Sevilla they say they only negotiate with Chelsea, they don’t know anything about Barça. At Barcelona, they admit an immediate offensive but it is true they have not made a move. Koundé prioritizes his physical preparation and does not see an immediate solution.
Sevilla continues to exchange documents with Chelsea. Until this time, FC Barcelona has NOT contacted Sevilla FC for Kounde. Any information to the contrary is FALSE.
