CHELSEA target Jules Kounde has addressed rumours that he is keen to leave Barcelona this summer.

Despite the fact that Chelsea have yet to officially confirm Mauricio Pochettino as their new boss – that has not stopped the speculation that Ted Boehly is still eager to sign a few more players in the transfer window.

Kounde is a player that Chelsea have been linked with ever since his days with Sevilla – but have never been able to convince the Frenchman that a move to the Premier League is one he needs to make.

However – Kounde’s future in Spain now looks uncertain however with Sport reporting he is unhappy with his role at Barcelona and is considering a move away this summer.

The defender has started 26 of Barcelona’s 35 league matches this term, the majority of those playing at right-back.

Kounde believes he was promised more game time in his preferred role at centre-half where Ronald Araújo and Andreas Christensen have been the manager’s preferred first-choice paring.

But despite all the speculation and the rumours – Kounde has now come out and admitted that he does not want to leave the Spanish giants.

“To be 100% clear, I’ve never asked to leave Barcelona and I’m not gonna leave the club,” he said.

“I’m not going anywhere.”

CHELSEA have a number of world class defenders at the club and they shouldnt really need to improve that area of the pitch.

But Kounde is a man that they have wanted for some time and is a player that could be one of the best – he would be a brilliant signing.

We are not shocked to see that he wants to stay at the club – he wants to become a legend at the Camp Nou
