The newest team to enter the race for the transfer of Sevilla defender Jules Kounde is Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and both Real Madrid and Chelsea have showed interest in signing the Frenchman to their teams.
Five major European heavyweights have expressed interest in signing the 23-year-old, according to sources.
Fichajes Kounde reports have been followed by Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool, and Barcelona.
According to a recent report from Fichajes, PSG has entered the competition to capture the exceptional Sevilla defender.
The Frenchman has made 124 appearances for Julen Lopetegui since joining the Spaniard for £22.5 million from Ligue 1 club Bordeaux in 2019.
With each amazing performance, the defender’s popularity has grown. Thomas Tuchel of Chelsea is a big fan of Kounde.
Real Madrid is a legitimate contender as well, with defensive reinforcements expected this summer.
The Parisians appear to be joining the hunt for a center-back who is quickly establishing himself as one of the best in Europe.
Jules Kounde, a Real Madrid and Chelsea target, might be part of PSG’s revamp.
PSG is likely to make a number of changes this summer, including the hiring of a new manager.
The future of current manager Mauricio Pochettino is still up in the air.
Pochettino has held negotiations with Manchester United about taking over as manager at Old Trafford, according to Foot Mercato.
It’ll be intriguing to see if the Red Devils choose the Argentine over interim boss Ralf Rangnick.
In contrast, PSG appears to have issued an invitation to speak with the former Tottenham Hotspur coach.
The Ligue 1 leaders will have to pay €20 million to fire Pochettino, according to GetFootballNewsFrance, which is why they may be waiting for United to woo him away from Paris.
Kylian Mbappe appears to be on the verge of joining Real Madrid, bringing an end to a long-running transfer saga.
According to Marca, the former AS Monaco striker is close to signing a contract with Los Blancos.
Angel Di Maria is also expected to leave Parc des Princes, according to AS, with the Argentine striker mulling a return to Benfica in the Primeira Liga.
The future of Lionel Messi is still a major issue of discussion. Rumors lingered that he will return to Barcelona after leaving Catalonia for Paris last summer.
On the other hand, Barcelona president Joan Laporta has dismissed the allegations.
The signing of Kounde might herald the start of a major shift at the Ligue 1 champions, but they will have to compete for his services with Chelsea and Real Madrid.
