Manchester United are ‘interested’ in Sevilla star Jules Koundé, according to AS.
The defender starred in his side’s 2-0 win over Barcelona in the Copa del Rey semi-final first leg tie on Wednesday.
His fine displays since arriving in Spain from Bordeaux in 2019 has not gone unnoticed.
After impressing in his debut campaign, Manchester City came forward with a €55m bid for the centre-back, which was turned down by the La Liga side.
The 22-year-old’s performances continues to draw attention from top European clubs as the Red Devils, Real Madrid and Barcelona have ‘asked’ about Koundé. AS further adds Paris Saint-Germain have added to the list.
Sevilla are suspecting that one of the clubs will come forward and pay his €80m release clause in the summer.
However, the question is which suitor, if they decide to invest heavily in his signing, will be able to convince the player for the transfer.
AS’ report only explain the clubs who have taken an interest in Koundé and add ‘it will be up to him to decide’ his future.
Over the years, Sevilla have made cash through player sales and everything indicates the centre-back will be the ‘most important sale’ of the last two decades.
Sevilla sporting director Monchi spoke to Estadio Deportivo after his side’s latest win over Barcelona.
The local newspaper states Koundé’s clause [€75m] is the ‘only option that seems feasible for a hypothetical exit’. In other words, a club wanting to sign him must trigger his clause and that’s the only way for a possible signing in the summer.
When was asked about the possibility of losing Koundé at the end of the season, Monchi said: “I’m more concerned about his present.”
