Sport says Barca tried to negotiate to sign him last summer, but Sevilla did not want to sell.
But the situation has changed this summer. And what he could have been worth one year ago is not the same. Sevilla have a hole in their budget of around €40m euros, due to their early KO from the Champions League.
They had budgeted to reach the quarterfinals. In addition, they were knocked out of the Europa League in the last 16, which did not help.
For that reason, a move to Barça is unlikely for Kounde. Especially considering teams like Chelsea will be back in the mix with more money, if their sale goes through.
