FOOTBALL-STUDS– Real Madrid reportedly are interested in getting ESPN Sevilla Sevilla defender, Jules Kounde, this summer. However, Madrid’s efforts to propose a 21-year-old player is believed not to be easy.
Recently Jules Kounde began to be highlighted by various media because he was Real Madrid on July 3, 2019. He bailed out Sevilla from Bordeaux with a tag of 25 million euros (Rp 426 billion).
Since then, Kounde has been able to become an important figure in the sector behind Sevilla. A duet with Diego Carlos in the heart of the defense, Jules Kounde was able to make Los Nervionenses into the ranks of the club who conceded a little in La Liga.
Sevilla, who finished the season in fourth place in La Liga final standings, conceded only 34 goals in 38 matches. The amount is less than Barcelona who finished second, and conceded 38 goals.
Attracted by the brilliant performance of Jules Kounde
Jules Kounde’s brilliant performance made Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane smitten. Zidane needs the Frenchman to add solid back to Los Blancos next season.
In addition, Jules Kounde is considered as an ideal figure to be a substitute for Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos. At present, Ramos is 34 years old and is about to retire.
Even so, Real Madrid’s efforts to redeem Jules Kounde from Sevilla will not be easy. Because, Los Nervionenses still need Kounde to occupy a post in the back line.
In addition, Sevilla are also worried about losing Diego Carlos. The new player brought in from Nantes on May 31, 2019, is often associated with Liverpool.
