Koundé’s deal with Chelsea still up in the air as Barcelona claims dismissed – reports

A bit of a football storm ‘Twitterati’ erupted earlier today due to ‘late reports’ that Barcelona were able to eye Chelsea for a second time this summer, by convincing Sevilla defender Jules Koundé to join the Culés instead of the Blues. However, reports in Spain from Mundo Deportivo and The beach bar – who would jump on the claim that almighty Barca, despite their near-fallen status, are still giants in the sport – say the exact opposite.

Of course, stranger things have happened in football. Manchester United certainly weren’t counting on overtaking Chelsea to take Pedro to Barcelona. Nor did Tottenham return when Willian, medically proven and only days away from a photo shoot with pen, paper and all that jazz, ditched Spurs to move to west London in the place. Koundé can very well do the same to us, given Beckham Law and all that Barça whispers in their ears while doing everything they can to avoid what may be one of the worst falls in history. grace of sports history.

Still, don’t worry like Boehly and co. prove to be more than capable operators of football transfers despite this being (in theory) their first rodeo. If not Koundé, it will be someone else just as capable or even better than the French international.
