Barca Pip Kounde's Deal From Chelsea — Fabrizio

Barcelona have been torn in Chelsea's flesh as they again will be beating them to the signing of French centre-back Jules Kounde from Sevilla in a deal less than €50M on Wednesday.

The football transfer expert Fabrizio Romano made this known through his popular Twitter page where he posted, "Jules Koundé to Barcelona, here we go! 

Verbal agreement now in place with Sevilla after the long saga and further negotiations today, waiting to get it signed soon.#FCB Jules Koundé agreed on personal terms with Barça last weekend, the contract is ready. Xavi, the key factor again.


Kounde will be Barcelona's 5th signing of the summer after Franck Kessie, Raphinha, Andreas Christensen, and Robert Lewandoski.

He is identified as the final piece in the new Barcelona that Xavi Hernandez is building basically due to his defensive prowess and ball-playing ability.

Kounde is aggressive and capable of maintaining high pressure on strikers while also keeping his cool head.

The 23-year-old centre-back was crucial to Sevilla's defence last season despite ending the season trophyless but during his 4-year stay at Sevilla, he won a Europa League title and the UEFA Nations League with France.

Currently, he will be a major signing for Barcelona given his age and track record but some critics would suggest he doesn't end up like his compatriot Samuel Umtiti and Clement Lenglet.
