Jules Kounde to Chelsea’s latest: “Representatives are becoming frustrated”
The Jules Kounde to Chelsea tale has seemed to drag on for what seems like an eternity, and it appears that Kounde’s representatives are beginning to believe the same thing.
According to 90min.com, Kounde’s representatives have advised the Premier League club that they need to make a’more concerted attempt’ to recruit the French international.
Sevilla is sticking to their guns from last summer and demanding his £69 million release clause, despite continued talks between all parties.
Despite Barcelona’s interest, Kounde’s representatives have made it known that he wants to join Chelsea.
The report goes on to say that the Blues are hopeful of completing a deal for Kounde in the coming weeks.
At this point, it appears like we’re running in circles with this prospective deal, with Sevilla continuing to play hardball.
I’m still optimistic that Chelsea will be able to complete a deal for less than the release clause.
