Barcelona’s Jules Kunde, 24, is looking to leave the club this summer.
“Kunde is willing to leave the club this summer and has indicated that he will listen to any offers that come his way,” Tony Humarti of Spanish outlet Relevo reported on Wednesday (July 23).
“He has agreed with the club that he will listen to any offers he receives,” the report added.
Currently, Barcelona has a solid center back pairing. Ronald Araujo and Andreas Christensen. Kunde, a center-back, is playing at right-back behind them.
“Kunde has spoken to Xavi about this,” said Humamarti, “and his market value has increased compared to the summer of 2022. Barcelona are aware of this and can let him leave this summer.”
Kunde is a 178 cm center back who is a bit short but has a solid build. His technique is excellent. He defends well with good build-up, quick thinking and mobility. His athleticism allows him to compete for aerial balls.
He played a key role for Sevilla for three seasons starting in 2019-20. In the last season, 2019-20, he was a key part of the team that won the Europa League. His stock has risen in Europe. In the 2021-22 season, he scored three goals and provided one assist in 44 games.
After strong interest from Chelsea, Kunde opted for Barcelona ahead of the 2022-23 season. In total, he scored one goal and provided six assists in 38 games. He made an impact on the team, starting 26 of 27 La Liga matches.메이저사이트
However, he didn’t get much time in his preferred position. He started 21 games at right-back, according to statistics firm Transfermarkt. Kunde prefers to play as a central defender. Despite winning the La Liga title, it seems likely that he could leave the club this summer.
There’s also a chance that Kunde could stay. According to local reports, financially troubled Barcelona are planning to organize their squad. Christensen could be a target for sale. He joined on a free transfer from Chelsea. He didn’t pay a transfer fee, so letting him go could generate a significant profit.
According to soccer outlet Goal.com, Kunde signed for Barcelona for €50 million. His contract ends in June 2027.
