Sevilla is available to sell Manchester United’s long-term defensive target Jules Kounde at the correct price, as indicated by Todo Fichajes.
Kounde has been exceptional in a heavenly season with Sevilla, who have effectively played and fixed their Champions League position for the next season. The Frenchman looks set to be one of the defensive stars of the future to come, with Todo Fichajes detailing that Man United is excited about buying him.
Manchester United is in desperate need of another solid center-back, Thursday’s loss to Liverpool demonstrated that, with Kounde, at 22, one who could develop close by Harry Maguire. He is young and can provide the ultimate speed and skills for United at the back.
While he won’t come modest, with Sevilla requesting €65M (£56M), according to Todo Fichajes, the report takes note that Sevilla is not totally against selling. They could be open if they get the right offer for their player.
For this situation, it has all the chances of being a matter of the Spanish side having no second thoughts seeing the departure of Kounde if their valuation of the defender is settled completely. Man United has the financial capacities to get this transfer going, the truth will surface eventually on the off chance that they push ahead and do it.
Manchester United is effectively looking for many other defensive options. Some of their high-class targets include Raphael Varane, Pau Torres who are available for a similar price.
It is very likely that United will look to sign more defenders this season as their defensive options are growing weak. Teams like Manchester City have brought in Ruben Dias and Cancelo which seemed to be a great business for them as both the players are ruling Europe.
United needs to invest in their defense if want to compete for titles next season.
