Barca ‘Open’ to Selling Unsettled £40m Defender in Transfer ‘Fire Sale with Manchester United in hot pursuit.


According to multiple reports, Barcelona is contemplating selling Jules Kounde in the upcoming summer transfer window, despite signing him from Sevilla just two years ago. Kounde seems dissatisfied with his role at Camp Nou, prompting the club to consider cashing in on him to improve their financial situation. While Kounde played a crucial role in Xavi’s title-winning team during the 2022-23 season, featuring in 29 league games, he often found himself deployed as a right-back, a tactical decision that persists this season.

Despite excelling primarily as a center-back, the 25-year-old has expressed his desire to play in the heart of the defense, contrary to Xavi’s deployment. Reports indicate Kounde’s growing frustration with his situation, potentially leading him to seek a transfer away from Barcelona. Meanwhile, the club continues to grapple with financial challenges, despite previous attempts to address them, prompting considerations of player sales to stabilize their finances.

Barcelona boasts depth in central defense with players like Ronald Araujo, Andreas Christensen, Pau Cubarsi, and Inigo Martinez, in addition to Kounde. Furthermore, Eric Garcia’s return from loan adds to their options. Given the surplus and Kounde’s apparent unrest, Barcelona may opt to offload one of their center-backs.

In addition to Kounde, Frenkie De Jong has emerged as a prominent name on the potential departure list. The Dutch midfielder was previously linked with a move to Manchester United and is now reportedly attracting interest from Tottenham. Barcelona have allegedly received a €60 million offer for De Jong, with rumors suggesting an ultimatum has been issued, urging him to either commit to the club or facilitate a lucrative transfer to address their financial woes.
