In the Europa League semi-final, Kounde defeated United for Sevilla. However, the Sevilla center-back Jules Kounde is added to the shortlist of Manchester United. This summer United fans are frustrated for not adding a new center-back into the team.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side interested in Kounde in the past summer. At the start of this season, United needs a player like him in central defense. Kounde Contract expires in 2024. According to the report of ESPN Sevilla could sell him for a fee near about £59 million.
As per the report of Don Balon, City are continuing defensive signings for both Nathan Ake and Ruben Dias in the summer. And Kounda may be able to get the perfect replacement for Garcia. Because Garcia will make the move to Barcelona soon.
Jules Koundé joined Sevilla a year ago (2019) from the club Bordeaux for £22.4 million. He made 70 appearances at Bordeaux in 2019. Next month he will be appearing in France under-21 international.
According to the GFFN report Former club, Bordeaux will receive nine million Euros from any future sale. As a result, City linked to several center-backs Dayot Upamecano, Kalidou Koulibaly, and James Tarkowski.
Kounde’s Labelled as one of the sensations of French football
Kounde is a fantastic player. The strength of the centre back is his maturity and intelligence toward the game. Whoscored.com reported that Kounde had the second-best pass accuracy of all players. Sevilla’s statement upon securing Kounde’s signature labeled him, ‘one of the sensations of French football’.
United arguably needs a new centre-back because they scored only nineteen goals in the opening of the Premier League. They have very poor performance on the defense side. So much disappointment arises from players like Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, and Eric Bailly.
Sevilla sporting director said that they proclaimed no to an offer that multiplied by two and a half times. The amount that they paid last year, a player labeled as being ‘expensive’, he said.
The Red Devils will hopefully achieve the success for the young Frenchman’s signature in the summer. Moreover, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also heightening by Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly.
Kounde is an outstanding talent who has risen to the challenge in both France and Spain. He made more than 100 appearances at only 21 in his career. A player like him is already making a massive difference due to his age.
Somehow, it would be great to see a top young talent like Kounde. He makes his way to the Premier League at some point in his career. Therefore, the player will achieve more success in his life.
