OFFICIAL: FC Barcelona Confirms They Have Reached Agreement In Principle For Jules Kounde From Sevilla.

 FC Barcelona and Sevilla FC have on Thursday reached an agreement for the transfer of Jules Olivier Kounde, awaiting the player passing a medical and the signing of contracts.

Koundé’s signing comes after a long bidding war between Barça and Chelsea, who last Thursday reached an agreement with Sevilla on a deal worth over €60 million but were never given the green light to make the transfer official.

Barca would pay Sevilla a €50million transfer fee plus €5million add-ons, and Kounde would sign a five-year contract with the club.

The French international offers a giant upgrade to Barça’s defense and should form a formidable center-back pairing alongside Ronald Araujo, and the Blaugrana continue to add major depth to Xavi Hernández’s squad ahead of what could be a great season.
