Zapping World Eleven The most beautiful Ligue 1 Uber Eats 2022/23 jerseys
While the Girondins de Bordeaux still do not know if they will be able to start the season in Ligue 2 on July 30, there is no doubt that the leaders of the club with the scapular are closely following the soap opera around the transfer of Jules Koundé. Bought by Sevilla in July 2019 for 25 million euros, the French defender could still bring money to his training club because according to Ben Jacobs, the FCGB will receive 20% of the future sale of Koundé.
For the journalist, this percentage explains the slowness of the outcome because if Chelsea formally offered 55 million pounds, it is Barça, less economically strong, who would favor the 23-year-old player. The Sevillian sporting director, Monchi, would therefore be waiting for a good offer from Blaugranas which, according to Fabrizio Romano, could happen quickly. Barça would thus prepare an “opening offer” of less than 55 million pounds, with a “different structure”, and which could satisfy Sevilla, despite the percentage granted to Bordeaux.
Bordeaux, the key to the transfer of Koundé?

One key point being overlooked in this whole Jules Kounde saga is Bordeaux. They take 20% from the sale. That’s why Monchi still prefers #CFC‘s bid. Chelsea have further talks today on formalities around their offer. Barcelona yet to table anything official as of Sunday morning.

Kounde. Barça preparing opening bid – won’t match £55m, as structure will be different. No Depay and/or Dest included. Chelsea’s £55m bid, still valid in Sevilla’s hands.🚨🇫🇷 #FCB

The slowness of the outcome of the transfer of Jules Koundé could be linked to the percentage that Bordeaux will receive after the sale of the French defender. According to Ben Jacobs, the Girondins will receive 20%, which encourages Monchi to prefer Chelsea’s offer.
