The information surprised more than one. A year after forcing his departure from FC Barcelona, ​​Jules Koundé (24) could already leave Catalonia. Recruited from Sevilla FC in exchange for 50 million euros, the French defender told his leaders that he was not asking for his departure, but that he was ready to pack up if his club received a satisfactory offer.

A clear message for culés leaders, whose viability plan has still not been accepted by LaLiga, while they must release 200 M € to calmly approach their summer transfer window. For his part, Koundé is therefore ready to shorten his stay at Blaugrana for a very specific reason. Tired of having to play very regularly as a right-back, the former Sevillian knows that his coach, Xavi, relies more on the central hinge Araujo-Christensen.

The Premier League already on the lookout

In the end, even if they had not specifically planned for a premature divorce, the two parties could find themselves there. But to get Koundé out of Barça, you will have to pay no less than 80 million euros. According Sport, two teams would have already positioned themselves in this file. Unsurprisingly, two Premier League teams: Manchester United and Chelsea. Two entities wishing to achieve a big transfer window.

On the Mancunian side, the departure of Phil Jones and that of Harry Maguire will force the Red Devils to strengthen behind. And the least we can say is that Koundé has plenty of room and level to win in the English rearguard. At the Blues, several options are available (Badiashile, Fofana, Koulibaly, Thiago Silva), but the Londoners’ buying fever is definitely not over.
