BREAKING: Jules Kounde to Barcelona ‘here we go’ an agreement reached in principle between the two clubs.
Barring a shock, Jules Kounde will join Barcelona. The French center back’s future may be revealed in the coming hours as Sevilla and the Catalan club have progressed negotiations.
The two teams have agreed on a set fee of roughly 50 million euros for the player’s move.
According to MARCA, the variable bonuses of 10 million euros on top of the set price are what prohibits reaching a complete green light.
This is a small problem that shouldn’t keep the deal from being completed in any case. Barcelona has nothing but optimism on the acquisition of Kounde.
variations worth ten million euros
There will be an additional 10 million euros in variables in addition to the fixed 50 million euros. Five of these ten million euros, according to TV3, will be simple to fulfill. Although some administrative details still need to be worked out, Kounde’s transfer has been approved as of right now.
The operation’s financial metrics are very comparable to those Chelsea reported. The Premier League team made an official offer to the player since they were interested in him. They did not reply to Sevilla’s response, though, and were never seen or heard from again.
The formal commencement of the negotiations was last Monday. Mateu Alemany then called the Sevilla offices to express a long-standing interest.
But up to that point, neither an official nor an unofficial proposition had been made to the Andalusian club. Barcelona had also not demonstrated any real interest in Kounde.
For the 2022–23 season, Xavi wanted to bolster the defense with his favorite player, Kounde. After assembling an extremely brilliant attacking unit, the Catalan club’s top aim is to solidify the back line.

Barcelona will add strength at the back, ball control, leadership, and judgment with Kounde.
Brazilian winger Raphinha reacted to Fabrizio Romano’s here we go post via Instagram and I think that he will be so excited to have him onboard.
Jules Kounde is a world class defender and he will perform extremely well under the management of Xavi Hernandez.
