A sad but necessary determination in the Blaugrana house has already been made, towards the French defender. As much as Xavi tried to block this exit, Laporta was able to do little or nothing that even this operation hurts.
After several meetings on the board of directors of the FC Barcelonathe team has made a decision regarding one of the players close to Jules Koundé. More than Joanna Laporta tried to delay the inevitable, they finally resigned and will no longer try to convince the player to stay at the Spotify Camp Nou.
Jules Koundé himself also played his part in persuading his friend and fellow French international to stay at Barcelona. The Catalan team thus greets Ousmane Dembélé, who has already said yes to PSG, and the only details are missing to make the operation effective. Everything will start to fall into place once Barça returns from the United States.
Koundé’s friend leaves Barcelona
For several weeks, the Barcelona presidency, in collaboration with the technical staff led by Xavi, has been in dialogue with the French forward. The answers were marked by uncertainty, since he did not confirm his move to the Parisian team, but neither did he claim to remain in the culé team. In the end we know that he has always been interested in reaching the Parque de los Príncipes.
The most negative aspect of the story is that Barça will not receive the 25 million euros of the total 50 in the clause. Apparently, the player’s agent is trying to negotiate with Mateu Alemany so that the forward can leave at a cheaper price for PSG. Even with the economic power of Qatari entrepreneurs, the Catalan club will not get a high income.
Koundé’s next former FC Barcelona team-mate faces a difficult task upon his arrival at PSG
The French club started expressing its interest in Ousmane Dembélé almost when it found out that Kylian Mbappé had everything ready to go to Real Madrid. Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, owner and principal boss of the French team, thought that the departure of an important player like the former Monaco should be replaced with an elite footballer, almost a match for him.
In part, the signing of the right winger is something of a consolation prize for Luis Enrique, who longed for the French striker to stay. In the end, it’s the FC Barcelona is the main victim, since they will be left without a key player in the attack, and the money they will pay for him does not justify such a loss.
