Sevilla have no intention of lowering their economic expectations with Jules Koundé and they have made it known to FC Barcelona, who hope to sign him for a reduced price this summer
Jules Koundé is one of the big names in the diary of the FC Barcelona of face to the season 2022-2023. The central is of the like of Xavi Hernández, the one who has insisted to the Barcelona directors to concretise his traspaso this summer, although it is conscious that it will not be a simple operation because the Seville is not by the work of 'give' or sell by a price reduced to one of his big 'jewels' of the changing room.
The Barça is expecting to concretise the sale of 15% remaining of the television rights by the next 25 years to be able to go out to the market of signings estival and, to date, has not presented a formal offer to the club hispalense to do with the services of the French player of 23 years, but of agreement to a recent information of the journalist Gerard Romero the intention of the Barcelona entity would be to close the operation by 45 'kilos'.
Now, from the newspaper 'SPORT' have stood out that the Seville is not in conditions to accept said offer by Koundé, although they recognise that -for the moment- do not have news of the Barça. The club of Nervión had priced it in 60-65 million euros, underneath of his clause of rescission, that is of 80 'kilos' and already avoided that the Parisian left to Chelsea the past summer.
The situation to day of today is different and the Barça seems to be leading the career by his possible signing, to fault that they access to the available price that has put him the Seville. The group londinense also has showed a lot of interest in his traspaso, but in the last weeks have converted to Matthijs of Ligt in his main aim to reinforce his defence.
From the Stamford Bridge are forced to fichar to some head office more after the exits of Antonio Rüdiger, with destination to the Real Madrid, and Andreas Christensen, the one who in the next days will confirm his traspaso to the Barça. Besides, the 'blues' confront to the possible exit of César Azpilicueta, to the one who already have put him available price.
Xavi, got obsessed with Koundé
The trainer egarense has insisted in the last weeks in the signing of the international with France, the one who under the orders of Julen Lopetegui in the Seville has marvelled by his big strength for the disputes of balloon, being able to add with a lot of intensity in spite of not being the central higher or corpulento. It wins a big quantity of duels, costing of his speed and stands out his aerial game, where always has showed imponente. There is those who have cataloged him like the 'new Sergio Bouquets', although it improves it for now.
