Barca expects to close the deal for Kounde this Tuesday

After the player has withstood pressure from Chelsea, who has already been deactivated, the Barca club hopes to reach an agreement with Sevilla for the transfer of the French central defender 

The Barcelona entity contemplates that the defender can join directly in New York this Wednesday, the last stop of the Barça expedition on its tour of the USA.

The future of Jules Kounde will be resolved in the next few hours. In fact, Barca hopes to be able to close its transfer between this same Tuesday. After deactivating the option of Chelsea, thanks to the fact that the French central defender has remained firm in his word of only wanting to play at the Camp Nou, the Barca club activated the negotiations with Sevilla this Monday afternoon – the morning in Dallas – so that Kounde can become the sixth reinforcement of the 2022-23 squad, after the additions of Kessie, Christensen, Raphinha, Dembele, and Lewandowski.

Would be incorporated directly into the United States

Currently, Kounde is in Lagos (Portugal), where he is concentrated with Sevilla, who on Monday played a tournament against Sporting Lisbon and won after winning the penalty shootout. 

Once Kounde,  the number one central defender on Xavi‘s list for the central position, is closed, the chapter on the full-backs remains to be closed, one of the demarcations that on this tour is establishing that the Barcelona team is more limited.
