According to Fabrizio Romano (5 stars), Barcelona are preparing an official bid for Jules Kounde.
The offer won’t match Chelsea’s £55m (€65m), but it will have a different structure. As reported before, the Catalans are ready to pay a higher fee upfront, while the London clubs offered to pay in instalments.
Also, Barca won’t try to include any player in the deal. Neither Memphis Depay nor Sergino Dest will enter the operation.
At the moment, Sevilla insist that they are only talking to Chelsea, although the agreement isn’t complete.
