Jules Kounde was not registered by Barcelona before the opening game of La Liga, but they did register four other new signings. 

The Catalan giants are currently experiencing financial turmoil, causing them to worry a lot about not being able to sign up new recruits. But now, Barcelona have a solution, having received £ 85 million from the sale of 24.5% of Barca Studios to Orpehus Media.

The latest, the Camp Nou home team has successfully registered 4 players, Robert Lewandowski, Franck Kessie, Raphinha and Andreas Christensen to the La Liga organizers just before the opening day of the new season. However, Jules Kounde – who joined the club in a deal worth around £45m – was out of the question, even as they struggled to sign the former Sevilla midfielder in the face of stiff Chelsea competition. . Two names Ousmane Dembele and Sergi Roberto have also been registered after agreeing a new contract with the club.

France international Kounde has been one of the most impressive young centre-backs in Europe over the past few seasons, having signed for Sevilla from Bordeaux three years ago for a fee of £25m.

Kounde won the Europa League with Sevilla, and was part of the French national team that won the 2020/21 Nations League. He became Barcelona’s fifth signing of the summer following the arrivals of Kessie, former Chelsea defender Christensen, former Leeds United midfielder Raphinha and Polish striker Lewandowski from Bayern Munich.

Barcelona have been linked with moves to buy Man City’s Bernardo Silva and Chelsea’s Marcos Alonso, but those potential deals could be put on hold if the club are unable to sign any more players.
