Koundé, turkey of the farce at Barça

If FC Barcelona was able to register a good part of its summer recruits for the start of La Liga, it nevertheless made the choice to leave Jules Koundé in the waiting room. Almost a snub for the player.

Thanks to the sale of 24.5% of Barça Studios, FC Barcelona has bailed out part of its coffers. Good news for its summer recruits, but also for extended players. From now on, Robert Lewandowski, Franck Kessié, Raphinha and Andreas Christensen have the right to wear the Blaugrana jersey in La Liga. Ditto for Ousmane Dembélé and Sergi Roberto. On the other hand, a man is left on the side of the road. This is Jules Koundé.

Real turkey from Catalan stuffing, the tricolor international just arrived from Sevilla FC was not chosen by management to be included on the famous list. As the Spanish press indicates, the Frenchman will only be able to participate in the Spanish championship on the condition that Barça recovers more money. In other words, if the club does not sell more players and/or fails to reach an agreement with its executives for them to lower their salaries, then Jules Koundé will remain in the stands.

Stuck in the waiting room

Very bad news for the defender who has just arrived at Camp Nou, he who has a World Cup in his sights and who will have to play with his new team to stay in the small papers of Didier Deschamps. Things could perhaps settle down quickly, depending in particular on the progress of the discussions between Memphis Depay and Juventus. As for Frenkie de Jong, he still isn’t thrilled with the idea of ​​leaving Barcelona.

At the same time, Barça is still looking to strengthen and recruit. Despite its precarious economic situation, the club would have the firm intention of attracting another defender, in the person of Marcos Alonso (Chelsea), without forgetting Bernardo Silva (Manchester City). For the moment, Jules Koundé remains stuck in the waiting room.
