Just in: Watch Jules Koundé snub Chelsea and Barcelona saga as he revealed his decision
Thomas Tuchel ultimate priority for the ongoing transfer window is to secure at least one more defender after the arrival of Kalidou Koulibaly and Jules Koundé has always been the target
Chelsea have a deal with Sevilla for Jules Kounde, which is awaiting formalities and a formal sign off. Preferential personal terms have been agreed with the player.
Barcelona believe they can get closer to Chelsea’s overall bid, offering €40-45M with add-ons as they have been working all night and believed to have reached an AGREEMENT in principle with Sevilla for Jules Koundé.
According to report, the deal is 99% done, unless there is a huge change in the next few hours and could end up will being a Barça player
Report suggest that Sevilla and kounde use Chelsea’s bid as leverage against barca, match it or he’ll be gone and they’ve finally bid.
Think both teams have been secretly dealing with each other while they kept feeding wrong info to their local journos to prevent Chelsea from withdrawing the bid. Thus the wildly conflicting reports from Gerrard Romero.
It also doesn’t make sense that Sevilla would keep denying Barca contacts if they want a bidding war
Meanwhile a Sevilla sources deny any agreement with FCB as negotiations are ‘only with Chelsea’, Barcelona are preparing an official bid to try and hijack the deal.
But it seems the French and Sevilla defender has shown little or lesser concerns to the current his current transfer situation.
It was first a U-turn decision for him to join the Sevilla team on pre season training to his motivation message he shared
Jules Koundé is sharing contents on “achieving your dreams” and “dream without goals are just dreams” now on Instagram – while Barcelona and Chelsea are in a battle to sign him.
This definitely shows that the Chelsea and Barcelona target, careless of the transfer situation and has now concentrated on achieving his dream with goals
