Despite the interest of its coach Xavi, FC Barcelona has not yet started the process for Jules Koundé (23 years old, 32 games and 2 goals in La Liga for the 2021-2022 season). On the Sevilla FC side, sports director Monchi assures that the Catalans have not launched any discussion.
“Xavi has good taste if he wants Araujo and Koundé in the central hinge, it would not be a bad pair. But for the moment there is no contact with Barça, confided the leader on the Onda Cero. I know that Chelsea need to sign two central defenders, but the approaches for Koundé are coming from England and other countries. You would have to be a diviner to know what will happen.”
For the transfer of the Frenchman, Sevilla would claim at least 60 million euros.
