FC Barcelona have finally and officially completed the deal to sign Jules Oliver Kounde from Seville on a five-year deal; after snatching the deal from Chelsea, which has been verified on their various social media platforms.
The Sevilla defender was said to have agreed personal terms with Chelsea FC in 2021, after the Blues’ champions league triumph in Porto. However, in the ongoing summer transfer window, Barcelona agreed a deal with the player and his club, with Barcelona’s gaffer, Xavi, playing a huge role in the transfer.

He adds much more quality to the defensive line of the club and the team as a whole, making them stronger and increasing their possibility of winning more matches.
Jules Kounde, who has been on the radar of many European clubs, has been one of the best defenders in the world, even at his age, was one of the main defensive targets for Chelsea football club this summer. The versatile French international defender, who can play as a center back and as a wing back, has impressed so far with his many abilities that he showcases in every match, making him top class.
Kounde had been a major player for Sevilla and would attract a lot of attention in his transfer. That was always bound to happen, as he was pushing for a move to a bigger club.
