The riddle about Jules Kounde’s future is starting to come to light. The Sevilla defender is claimed to have agreed to join Chelsea in 2022.
In the last two years, Konde’s reputation in Spain has been on the rise. This is because the defender showed a very good performance in the Sevilla defense.
So far there are two clubs that are reported to want to hijack Kounde. They are Manchester United and Chelsea who have a big crush on the French defender.
Kounde claimed to have chosen to join Chelsea.
According to Castles, Chelsea are very serious about signing Kounde. They wanted to make it their new pillar of defense.
“Chelsea are very interested in his ability. They have also shown that they want to bring him to the Premier League,”
“Chelsea are also interested in making the transfer in January. For the transfer fee it doesn’t matter, because their offer last season was accepted by Sevilla,”
Wait for the Offer
According to Castles, Kunde is ready to move to Chelsea. Now he is just waiting for the team from West London to redeem the transfer dowry.
“Kunde is currently waiting to see if Marina Granovskaia [Chelsea Director of Sport] is willing to pay Monchi’s asking price. This situation also depends on whether Monchi will raise his price again beyond Chelsea’s reach.”
“If Monchi raises the price too high, then Kounde will have to wait until the summer to move,” he said.
Kunde’s transfer dowry could be said to be very high. The defender is pegged at 80 million Euros.
Kounde is considered one of the world’s best future defenders. So Sevilla feels it is natural to charge the player at such a high number.

A good news came for Chelsea. Their target defender, Jules Kunde is reportedly ready to be sold at a cheaper price in 2022.
Chelsea is currently in turmoil. Because they are in danger of experiencing a central defender crisis in the summer of 2022.
Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen have the potential to leave because their contracts expire in the summer. Not to mention that Cesar Azpilicueta is also reported to have the potential to leave as well, so Chelsea are trying to find a new fleet for their defense.
One defender who is quite often linked with Chelsea is Jules Kunde. ESPN claims that Chelsea’s chances of landing the defender are greater next season.
According to the report, Kunde is not a new target for Chelsea. Since last summer, they have been eyeing the services of the defender.
Thomas Tuchel confirmed that he had tried to sign Kounde. However, his efforts failed.
Transfer dowries have reportedly been a problem this summer. Sevilla reportedly want around 80 million euros for the transfer, and Chelsea are reluctant to pay that price.
