Newcastle United Plan to Raid Barcelona for Jules Kounde

Jules Kounde

Newcastle United are reportedly interested in Jules Kounde, according to a report from El Desmarque in Spain. They will provide a €50 million basic charge, with add-ons totaling an additional €25 million.

Jules Kounde : Star at Barcelona

Kounde, who moved from Sevilla to Barcelona last year, has advanced significantly. The French international, when he came to Camp Nou, was already regarded as one of La Liga’s top defenders.Nevertheless, he has made tremendous progress at the Catalan club, solidifying his position as the Blaugrana’s backbone.

The 24-year-old played well as a right-back in the 2022–2023 campaign, but this season he has started at center back, where he feels most comfortable. Jules Kounde has appeared for Barcelona in more than 50 games thus far, contributing two goals and six assists. However, the player’s status may be in jeopardy since Andreas Christensen is reportedly breathing down his neck.

Interests from Newcastle United

Several prestigious teams are expressing interest in Jules Kounde, and his stock is still high on the market. According to the source, Newcastle United plan to try to steal the defensive stalwart from Barcelona.
The Magpies are preparing to offer him €75 million to leave Barcelona.

The Tyneside company proposes €25 million in add-ons to the basic cost of €50 million. Barcelona should give the figure some thought, especially in light of the constant financial strain. However, the Catalan giants have previously rejected high bids for important players, such as Frenkie de Jong.

According to recent sources, Newcastle United is interested in a number of center backs, including Jean-Clair Todibo, a former player for Barcelona. Given that Jamaal Lascelles’ future at St. James’ Park is unknown and Fabian Schar is approaching thirty, the desire to sign a central defender makes sense.
