Official: Barcelona announce Kounde deal after bidding war with Chelsea

Barcelona confirmed on Thursday an “agreement in principle” with Sevilla for the signing of 23-year-old French center-back Jules Koundé on a permanent transfer, pending a medical to make the deal official.

Koundé’s signing comes after a long bidding war between Barça and Chelsea, who last Thursday reached an agreement with Sevilla on a deal worth over €60 million but were never given the green light to make the transfer official.

Barcelona set price tag on Chelsea target Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

To do this, club authorities will offload three players, including Aubameyang.

Chelsea are known to be keen on signing the striker following the takeoffs of Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner.

However, new owner Todd Bohely should propose a huge expense to push the arrangement across the line.

According to Spanish journalist Gerard Romero, Barcelona will not entertain any offers less than £21m for Aubameyang.

The club want to receive at least half the fee they paid out to sign Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich, which came to a total of £42.5m.

That is despite the fact that they signed Aubameyang on a FREE TRANSFER from Arsenal just eight months ago.

Real Madrid boss picks replacement as him set to rotate Modric more this season

With a World Cup to be played mid-season this year, Carlo Ancelotti plans to rotate Luka Modric more often in the 2022/23 term, Diario AS say.

The player who to replace him in the Real Madrid midfield – with Toni Kroos Casemiro still undisputed starters – would be Aurelien Tchouameni.

Notwithstanding him being a defensive midfielder normally, Ancelotti accepts the Frenchman can play higher up the pitch.

It would definitely be surprising to see the coach use Tchouameni in a more advanced role when he has options like Eduardo Camavinga and Dani Ceballos on the bench.

We already say Modric start on the bench in the first league game this season, with Camavinga playing in his place. However, the coach had to bring the veteran on already at halftime.

Gianluca Di Marzio adds that the negotiations have slowed down with the Juventus player.

Besides, Rabiot remains unconvinced about Manchester United as his destination this season as they won’t play in the Champions League.
