Chelsea makes crucial Jules Kounde transfer decision after latest Sevilla price tag
So, here we are once more, Chelsea and Sevilla are in a deadlock over Jules Kounde for the second year in a row, with a transfer appearing to be imminent.
This time around, everything seemed to be going more smoothly, but according to the Spanish newspaper Sport, the Blues are only willing to offer €55 million.
The current situation is that Sevilla wants €65 million. Both sides are holding firm.
The good news for Chelsea is that Barcelona, their primary competition for Kounde, has decided not to increase their offer either. They are in a worse financial situation than we are, so their restrictions go beyond mere symbolic ones.
The player has already been detained in Seville for a year longer than he had hoped, and he ultimately wants to leave. His club is likely to blink first.
Or, we could simply make a $60 million bid and share the difference.
