The future of Jules Koundé continues and the air, although in the last days seemed all smart so that the French fichara by Chelsea by the next five seasons. In fact, the president of the FC Barcelona, Joan Laporta, mentioned it in a video after being questioned by a fan culé in The Vegas: "Koundé no... It is fichado by Chelsea". Nevertheless, the situation has given a twist of ciento eighty degrees from the morning of this Saturday.

The journalist Gerard Romero informed that the Barça had arrived to a principle in accordance with the Seville for the traspaso of Jules Koundé and that, "except cataclysm", the footballer went to get dressed of Barcelona from the season 2022-2023. Other sources, however, stand out that from Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán have denied any type in accordance with the Barcelona group and aim that, for now, are negotiating only with Chelsea.

Fabrizio Romano, skilled journalist in the market of signings, has explained that the 'case Koundé' has three keys in this moment. The first is that the footballer has been in contact with the two teams (Barça and Chelsea) in the last two weeks. The player, that already was about to to leave to London the past year, has studied the personal terms that have posed both teams of face to the future.

The second key is directly related with what can offer the Barça. Although the information in 'Jijantes' establishes that the offer of the culés already has produced (therefore there would be principle of agreement), Fabrizio Romano has explained in his social networks that the club is preparing an official offer for encarrilar a deal with the Seville. This will not be the same that the one of Chelsea (of 55 million pounds), put from the City Condal consider it "very high". The one of the Barcelona would have a different structure and would be more oriented, possibly, in the highest variables.

Chelsea, waiting

Finally, the third has to see with Chelsea. They are expecting that the Seville and Koundé give the green light to complete the traspaso, always according to the before quoted source. They sent the proposal three days ago and keep attentive to what can happen. From the club have avoided 'wet' in this regard, as it left clear Thomas Tuchel in press conference during the Friday.

And it is that, in press conference in the middle of the pre-season, Thomas Tuchel denied to speak of the subject and 'laughed' after being asked after if the central French refused to the Barça: "This is what say... But I will not comment on other players", adding that "without news by the moment. I will say you if some time there will be news on Koundé".
