Barcelona chief reveals how Jules Kounde’s agent was disturbing him for move

Jules Kounde’s agent had Barcelona on speed dial in order to seal his client a dream move to the Nou Camp amid Chelsea’s interest.

Director of football Mateu Alemany confirmed Kounde’s representative called them “almost every day” before finally sealing a transfer.

Alemany said: “Almost every day they [Kounde’s team] called me for an update because Kounde wanted to join Barca and he was waiting for us.

“In the end I had to tell Jonathan [Kebe, his agent] not to call anymore because I didn’t know what to tell him.

“When we sold the second portion of future TV rights, Kounde had almost closed his deal with another club. But he wanted to come to Barca”
