The negotiations with the Seville for fichar to Jules Koundé in front of the attempts of Chelsea, finished with the French arriving to the rows of the FC Barcelona. However, the defence has been emphatic in that his signature by the Barcelona team would be conditioned by the role that had in the team, that has to be the same that had in the team hispalense: be in the axis of the saga.

In accordance with the newspaper 'ACE', the Frenchman would have communicated him to Xavi Hernández that only it wants to play like central defender and that will not do it like right side, a sector of the field in which it does not feel comfortable. Koundé Would follow suit in the case of the French selection, in spite of having debuted officially with 'Them Bleus' ranged in the right band.

In fact, the reason of his "no" to Chelsea would have taken place after a conversation with the trainer of the 'blues', Thomas Tuchel, the one who had communicated him his wish to have of him by the right side in case that César Azpilicueta finished abandoning the team londinense to incorporate to the rows of the Barcelona group, something that finally did not occur.

The complications with the 'case Dest'

On the other hand, in his first conversations with Xavi, would have noticed a greater disposal of the egarense to be central. Nevertheless, the situation could suffer an important twist in front of the situation of Sergiño Dest, the one who does not appear in the plans of the míster in spite of his wish to keep in the Barça, to the time that the directive expects to concretise his sale in the next days.

In the meeting in front of the Ray, the elected to do the times of the right side was Ronald Araújo, the one who also has felt more comfortable like head office, what would generate a possible conflict with the French, the one who although it can exert like side, wait not to do it during the greater part of the season. The panorama no luce alentador for Xavi, the one who could finish 'sacrificing' to a central or resorting to Sergi Roberto.
