FC Barcelona has finally taken Jules Koundé , a signing that has taken Chelsea to the face, who had been working for both Sevilla and the player himself for several seasons.
The French footballer was one of the London team’s favorite players to reinforce his defense this summer after the departures of Christensen and Rüdiger , but he will finally play at the Camp Nou.
According to the player himself in his first words as a Barcelona footballer, Xavi Hernández has been the determining point in opting for the Catalan team’s offer.
He affirms that he has spoken with him on several occasions and has explained his sports project and how he was going to be part of it, in addition, he affirms that he has been very excited about the way of explaining the project to him and believes that they share the same vision of football.
This has been the compelling reason why Koundé has decided to reject Chelsea, when his arrival at Stamford Bridge was practically closed.
– Barça’s offer was higher than Chelsea’s
Monchi has spoken today about the sale of Jules Koundé to FC Barcelona and has confirmed at all times that it is the highest proposal made by the player.
In recent days he had been wondering why Sevilla had decided to sell Koundé to Barça if he offered Chelsea more money, something that seems to be completely uncertain after the words of the Seville sports director.
