Jules Kounde will be transferring to Chelsea this summer, according to Barcelona president Joao Laporta, who seems to have been caught on camera telling a fan about the Frenchman’s future.
Chelsea and Barcelona have battled it out for as many as three players this summer. Lewandowski and Raphinha have already moved to Camp Nou, but Kounde’s future is up in the air.
It appears that Kounde’s departure from Sevilla has been prearranged. A Barcelona fan allegedly overheard the French defender informing Laporta that he was going to Stamford Bridge.
On the video, the president of Barcelona is heard saying:
“Koundé, no. He’s been signed by Chełsea.”
