Kounde decides to travel with Sevilla while negotiating

  • The central defender, who had not been summoned, has changed his mind and will go with the rest of the squad to the ‘stage’ in Portugal
  • Sevilla sources assure that everything remains the same and that they are negotiating with Chelsea because Barcelona still does not make an offer

Barcelona is now focused on reinforcing the two sides and the defensive axis but without rushing, following the times set by the treasury management. Until he can dispose of the income from the sale of the second package of television rights, which the Barcelona club will report some 400 million more, he will not make an offensive. This impasse catches Jules Kounde, the priority, in the middle of the negotiating war between Barcelona and Chelsea, a club that also aspires to hire him.

Kounde fears that everything will slow down and does not want to miss the physical preparation. If in the morning Sevilla did not include him in the list of players summoned for the second preseason ‘stage’ that started yesterday in the Portuguese town of Lagos, in the afternoon the defender himself asked to travel with the Sevilla expedition. 

Anyway. Julen Lopetegui, the coach, already has it very well assuming that he will not continue. In Sevilla, they assure that they do not influence the conversations that are being held with the English club because, club sources insist, Barcelona has not moved yet.  

The player could be seen yesterday dressed in the Sevilla kit exercising alone while waiting for a solution. Upon leaving the facilities, he signed some autographs and when the journalists asked him, he limited himself to saying: “I can’t say anything.”

The English are trying in these last hours to move quickly brandishing a personal agreement that they sealed long ago. Unofficial sources speak of 12 million euros net for the player, somewhat less than double what he would earn dressed as a culé. In addition, at Sanchez Pizjuan they insist that the ‘blue’ offer is real, of 55 million, close to their 65 million requirements, although the player would be slowing everything down while waiting for Barcelona to pick up the phone. 

At Camp Nou, they try to gain time, although they are convinced that the defender will comply, more so now with the influx of liquid. The economic offer will decide the balance.
