Negotiations for Kounde had been ongoing for several weeks, and it was thought that the player would sign with Chelsea at one point.
Fabrizio, who is always in the know, tweeted on Wednesday, July 27: “Jules Kounde to Barcelona, here we go! After a long saga, a verbal agreement has been reached with Sevilla, and further negotiations are underway today; we hope to have it signed soon.”

There is still no news or confirmation on the situation regarding Sutch midfielder Frenkie DeJong. He seems adamant that he wants to stay with the club, had been suggested that Xavi asked the player to take a massive drop in his salary if he wanted to remain at the Spotify Camp Nou.
Mystery also surrounds the ‘signing’ from Chelsea of Cesar Azpilicueta, as no full confirmation of this deal has been given yet.
