The season was not even nearing the end, and it was already clear that Jules Kunde would be among the most wanted central defenders on the Old Continent. The second extraordinary season dissuaded all those who thought he is a "one-season wonder"
Jules Kounde showed why Monchi once set aside 25,000,000 euros to bring the French defender from Bordeaux to Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. In his debut season, Jules Kounde found himself in the ideal team of the Europa League, which Sevilla won on that occasion.
Even then, the skeptics fell silent. It turned out that Monchi was right when he opened up to an anonymous person from Bordeaux. Sevilla won the "golden chick" Sevilla smelled a talent of Kounde, they got him at an affordable price, and this summer, the Andalusians will try to earn a big money for their knowledge to bring a player who was one of the most important Sevilla players last two seasons.
He influences the results and finally, he could fill the coffers well. Manchester United started inquiring a few months ago, but the Red Devils would rather see Rafael Varane at Old Trafford. And while they are trying to bring that deal to an end, and keep Kounde and Sevilla on hold, Tottenham joined the race to sign Kupnde.
And they were smoothly rejected. By the player.
Tottenham inquired in Sevilla about the price of Jules Kounde and the start of potential negotiations, but the possibility for the talented defender to move to London has disappeared.
The Spurs received a negative response directly from Jules Kounde and his agents. Sevilla and Tottenham had an agreement for him to go to London, the Spurs paid 30,000,000 euros to the account of the Andalusians and sent Davinson Sanchez, writes Di Marzio.
Everything failed. The reason is simple - Jules Kounde will not go to a club that does not play in the Champions League. That would be a step backward for the Frenchman. Jules Kounde will consider offers with his agent only from clubs that play in elite competition and that are more powerful in terms of payment than Sevilla.
He won't go to lower grade. At the cost of spending another season in the south of Spain. The fate of the young defender, who is of interest to half of Europe, will be interesting. Most are impressed by his knowledge and experience he has gained so far, and it is certain that whoever manages to bring in this young player will have a great player for the future.
