In this transfer season, English club Chelsea can claim that La Liga giants Barcelona have robbed them of everything. It’s too late to enter the transfer market due to ownership issues, Barcelona are taking it wherever they put their hands. The latest example is Sevilla’s French defender Jules Kunde. Chelsea coach Tukhel’s favorite defender Barcelona is pulling into the team.
A few days ago, Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann made a comment about Barcelona, which is in financial crisis. He said, Barcelona is the only club that doesn’t stop buying the players they want even if they don’t have money. It really seems like the situation. If not, after spending a large amount of money on Rafinia from Leeds and Lewandowski from Bayern, it is not a matter of slapping your hand again. Where Chelsea is made of sacks of money. But La Liga’s second-highest champions have won Kunde like Rafinha.
Several teams have been eyeing Sevilla’s French defender Jules Kunde since last season. Chelsea might have brought him into the team last season. But in the end it didn’t happen anymore. Andreas Christensen left Chelsea after Rudiger this season. Marcus Alonso and Cesar Azpicueleta are also expected to leave the team. And Barcelona is eyeing these two. So they had no option to throw big stars in the defense. Sevilla took this opportunity. Kunder has increased the price.
At first, it was almost certain that the Frenchman would go to Chelsea. But Barcelona dramatically hijacked the deal. Kunde’s future hangs in the middle between Chelsea and Sevilla. But in the end, this star chose the Catalan club as his next destination. Sevilla have agreed to release French defender Jules Kunde to Barcelona. Barca is spending 478 crores to get this 23-year-old defender.
The two clubs have already agreed on Kunde’s transfer. Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, a reliable source of news about the transfer, said that a verbal agreement has been reached between Barca and Sevilla regarding Kunde’s transfer. A written agreement remains to be formalized. He also said that Kunde reached an agreement with Barcelona on personal terms last Sunday. And coach Javi Hernandez played a key role behind his consent.
but there is a bit of a fishhook in Barcelona’s throat with an amount equivalent to 97 million rupees, which Barcelona will have to pay extra subject to various conditions. However, the Spanish media Marca reports that there is a slight problem with this, but there is no possibility of this deal falling through for the equivalent of 1 million euros or 97 million rupees.
Barca’s defense has been a concern in coach Xavi Hernandez’s first season. They lost 8-2 against Bayern Munich a season ago due to weak defense. So defense was the priority in this season’s team change. And at the top of the favorites there is Kunde, the defender who has been talked about in the last few seasons in La Liga.
