Jules Kounde: Barcelona confirm internal talks as Chelsea linked with summer transfer


Arcelona sporting director Mateu Alemany has said talks over Jules Kounde’s future at the club will be “resolved internally”.

The France international only joined the LaLiga champions last summer from Sevilla but has reportedly asked to leave.

Kounde is believed to have grown unhappy with his right-back role after playing the majority of his career as a centre-back.

Chelsea were strongly interested in the 24-year-old last summer and were close to agreeing a £55m deal for the defender.

Barca, however, hijacked the deal during a busy summer despite a backdrop of financial uncertainty.

Kounde has once again been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge ahead of what looks like another busy transfer window.

“These are internal situations that we will resolve internally,” Alemany told DAZN.

Mauricio Pochettino is set to be named the club’s third head coach of the Boehly-Clearlake Capital era after a nightmarish season for the club.

Chelsea could be ready for something of an overhaul as the Argentine looks to bring a major improvement to the squad.
