- The center-back is ruled out while waiting for his departure to Chelsea or Barcelona to be resolved
Sevilla has made public the list of players summoned by Julen Lopetegui for the second preseason ‘stage’, which will begin this Thursday in the Portuguese town of Lagos and the most striking news is the absence of Jules Kounde, discarded pending resolving your exit.
Kounde and Sevilla already know that he will be transferred, now it remains to be seen if the destination will be Chelsea or Barça. Although the player would like to sign for Barcelona, with whom he has already confirmed his arrival, Chelsea‘s financial offer could tip the balance. The English club finalizes its agreement with Sevilla and although the footballer has the last word, if Barcelona does not activate the second lever, they may be left without a signing. The financial offer for the player is also much higher than Chelsea.
While they wait for the second lever to be signed, from Barça they continue to trust that Kounde can wait and delay the agreement with Chelsea while waiting for the azulgrana. In any case, the next few hours will be decisive in determining the future of Kounde.
