Despite being in a difficult financial position with huge debts, but Barcelona still spend a lot of money to add quality rookies. One of them is Jules Kounde, a 23-year-old player who came to the Nou Camp team from Sevilla for a transfer fee of 50 million euros and 10 million euros in surcharges.
After a few days of training at the Joan Gamper sports center, Jules Kounde has officially made his Barcelona debut. During the debut, he signed a 5-year contract. The shirt number of the French player has not been announced yet. Kounde is Barcelona’s fifth rookie this summer.

This is one of the noisiest deals of this summer transfer window. Kounde had one foot in Chelsea but then he suddenly joined Barca. Kounde also shared about his contract negotiations: “It is true that I have received offers from other clubs. But I have always believed that Barcelona will reach an agreement with Sevilla. is a big club and very ambitious. I myself like to play in Spain, so for me, joining Barcelona was an easy choice.”
Due to coming to Barcelona later than other players, Kounde was not able to attend the team’s summer tour. Most likely, he will make his Barcelona debut in the Joan Gamper Cup match against Pumas Club this weekend.
