Premier League clubs circle for Barcelona defender Jules Koundé

This summer Barcelona will be forced into selling numerous first-team players to fund new arrivals due to their financial crisis, and one of the player’s they will be looking to move on for a profit is defender Jules Koundé.

The club are willing to listen to offers for Koundé as a result of their depth in the centre-back position. Interest in the Frenchman is at an all-time high with various Premier League clubs monitoring his situation.

Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool all have the 25-year-old high on their shortlist, due to their admiration for the player. Before making his €50m move to Barca in 2022, the defender was wanted by Europe’s elite clubs and the aforementioned Premier League clubs.

According to SPORT, Manchester United are very interested in signing the France international and this is because of their desire to clear out the likes of Raphael Varane, Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelöf in the summer. The Manchester-based club are hoping they can exploit the serious financial situation at the Spanish giants and secure Koundé signature for a discounted price.
