Koundé, pending departures for his registration, which Barcelona does not rule out playing against Valladolid
Barcelona‘s sports management is working hard in the hours leading up to the match against Valladolid this weekend to complete the operations it needs to be able to register Jules Koundé before the match against the Pucelanos, as Xavi was told, and to own player, what would happen. Two players are going through key hours for their possible departures from the club: Aubameyang and Memphis, both with offers they are willing to accept, although the coach would prefer that only one of the two, Memphis, leave the club’s discipline.
Contrary to his wishes, who at the moment is closest to leaving is Aubameyang, whose exit would depend on the tug-of-war for the price between Barcelona and Chelsea, the club that wants the Gabonese. Initially, the possible transfer of Marcos Alonso was included in the negotiations, but now they are two independent operations since the urgency of Barcelona is the registration of Koundé.
More stuck in the situation of Memphis Depay, whose possible departure to Juventus has been stopped by the signing of Milik by the Turin club, which was officially announced this Friday, although some information unlinks both operations. The Dutchman’s requests have been delaying the closing of the agreement between the striker and Juve, who already suspected that Memphis was negotiating with a third party when Manchester United’s interest became known. According to some English media, United would offer Barcelona 8 million pounds sterling for the signing, while Juve always contemplated the operation with a release letter.
In any case, the objective of the sports management is to be able to close at least the start of Auba this Friday or tomorrow, Saturday, to reassure Koundé, concerned about the imminence of the closing of the market without the federative registration, and Xavi himself. So it is a matter of hours before one of these exits materializes.
