Koundé: Todo pactado con el jugador. El Barça cree que por 55-60M el club andaluz aceptará. Veremos si entran más jugadores en la operación#jijantesfc #mercato

What’s changed in that time? Well, Chelsea have changed their transfer team, from one who had prioritised Kounde and were close to a deal with him and Sevilla, to one who prefers Matthijs de Ligt.
Then there’s Barcelona, who have managed to sell a chunk of their future TV rights for some summer spending money, as well as Clement Lenglet to Tottenham. After registering their free transfers, it seems they’re keen on Kounde as a big name signing to their back line.
Romero says they’ve agreed personal terms and Barca think they can afford the €55m go €60m it would take to get Sevilla to sell. What seemed unlikely two weeks ago now seems almost certain, and Chelsea can remove another major target from their shortlist.
