Jules Koundé is one of the great protagonists of Sevilla and a footballer that half of Europe wants to strengthen his defense. FC Barcelona has followed him for many years and this Sunday he will experience a 'gold' event at the Camp Nou
The FC Barcelona receives this Sunday to the Seville and the intention of the Barcelona is to follow his positive dynamics and link his sixth consecutive party with victory in LaLiga. The club of Nervión arrives to the Camp Nou in a moment delicate and with a lot of doubts after the last results (a victory in five parties), but that keeps on being a 'rock' in the defensive saga.
One of the big 'managers' of this is Jules Koundé, the one who has turned into one of the pillars of the Seville in the last seasons. The international with France is one 'rock' and surely will be one of the protagonists of the crash between blaugrana and sevillanos, as already it went it in Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán, after being expelled by an action with Jordi Alba.
The case is that Koundé carries a lot of years in the radar of the Barça (and in the one of the Real Madrid, Chelsea, PSG, United...) And it is a footballer that calls a lot the attention by his fortress in defence and also projection: it is 23 years old and a brilliant future by in front. The blaugrana always have wanted him, but his price of traspaso is excessively expensive.
Xavi Hernández always has wanted him in his staff. It knows that it is a player that gives a lot of consistency to the team and that it is an invaluable resource so that a defence was firm. This Sunday, will receive it in the Camp Nou and will see, again, how manages . It is evident that his bet always will be hit, but also takes in account that there is 'overbooking' in the defence.
80 millions by Koundé
The big 'problem' of Jules Koundé is his very high price. Chelsea already remained in the career during the past summer, but the Seville put firm and did not leave him go out by a mount inferior to his clause liberatoria, which is of 80 million euros; an inaccessible figure for any team of Europe by a defence, especially for a Barça in full economic recovery.
