Jules Koundé is not meeting the expectations he generated when he arrived in 2022 and this campaign is being one of the weakest for Barça. In the locker room they do not see him personally well and the club is considering putting him on the market if he continues like this

Jules Koundé was one of the signings 'top' in Europe in the summer of 2022. The FC Barcelona won the battle to Chelsea and did with Jules Koundé by 50 million euros, a quantity very underneath of his price of market in this moment. The alone player wanted to dress of Barcelona and this forced to the Seville to renounce to the money that offered him the 'blues', that was substantially more.

His arrival had to carry to the Barça to the following level, but a year and half afterwards can say that it has not fulfilled with the expectations that the culés deposited in him. The past season, Xavi Hernández bet by him more than right side that in the centre of the saga, playing 21 parties in the right-handed lane and 19 in his position. Although had remarkable stretches and even excellent, also went through low moments, just like this campaign.

Koundé Follows without waking up this season

After this first course something irregular expected of him a step at the front that it has not arrived. This season, the Frenchman has gone down his performance of the past and hardly has had a 'bunch' of meetings in which it has been to the level that showed in Seville. It seemed that his golazo and his good party in Glass against the Unionistas could be a turning point, but this Wednesday in Saint Mamés went back to be shipwrecked in a demanding crash.

Like right side, due to the fact that Joao Cancel still does not find physically apt to be headline, the French suffered so much against Nico Williams as against Adu Ares, that changed several times ofband , and needed of the help of Ronald Araújo in a lot of moments. Besides, in attack did not contribute absolutely at all and, although it was more fault of Lamine Yamal, went out in the 'photo' of the 1-0 of Guruzeta when losing the too prompt position before the bad pass of the Hispanic-Moroccan.

The Barça could put to Koundé in the market

His bad campaign and the feeling that the time happens and Koundé does not advance, in the newspaper 'Sport' ensure that the club already is posing do box with him in the market of summer. Although his value in 'Transfermarkt' keeps in 60 million euros, his value of real market is going down a bit more each week that happens because of his poor performances. In these moments, hardly there are teams that are had to pay more than 50/60 'kilos' by him, that, this yes, at least would cover what the blaugrana paid in his moment.

In case to have to traspasar to a central, in the Barcelona bent more for leaving go out to Andreas Christensen, that neither is doing a good season and that, when arriving free, would contribute more money 'net', to the not having to pay amortizaciones pending like raisin with Jules. Nevertheless, convince to the Danish to leave could be even more complicated that do it with the ex sevillista, something to take into account.

Pau Cubarsí could change the plans of the Barça

What is clear is that lto brutal irruption of Pau Cubarsí, that shined in Salamanca, in front of the Betis and that also left details in Bilbao, changes it everything. The central youngster of 17 years is showing to have level to have minutes in the first team and thus the exit of Koundé or of Christensen would hurt less. In this sense, although the polivalencia of the French for being able to play in the side does that it can coexist better with the canterano and with Iñigo Martínez, very of the taste of Xavi, seems that it is 'hartando' to be in band, something that also could unchain in his exit. The time and especially his performance will say if for real it uses him like active in the market veraniego or if it finish leading to the team as it expected of him.
