Barcelona and Sevilla agree fee for Jules Kounde

Barcelona and Sevilla have reached terms over a fee for Jules Kounde.

Marca says Sevilla and the Catalan club have reached advanced negotiations and the future of the French centre-back could be announced in the next few hours.

The two teams have reached an agreement for the fixed amount of the transfer of the player, about 50 million euros.

What prevents reaching an absolute green light are the variable bonuses of 10m euros on top of the fixed fee.

In any case, this is a minor issue and should not prevent the deal from being finalised. Barcelona are unreservedly optimistic about the transfer of Kounde.

In addition to the fixed 50m euros, there will be another 10m euros in variables.
