Jules Kounde discusses his decision to join Barcelona in LaLiga.

Jules Kounde, a recent addition to Barcelona, has revealed who persuaded him to sign with the team.

Kounde was acquired by Barcelona on Thursday night from Sevilla.


The addition of the French defender brings Xavi’s summer signing total to six, joining Robert Lewandowski, Pablo Torre, Frank Kessie, Andreas Christensen, and Raphinha.


After being introduced as Barcelona’s newest player, Kounde said that it was coach Xavi Hernández who persuaded him to sign with the club.

“Xavi is a significant reason why I’m here,” Kounde remarked. I was persuaded by his pitch, and I’m eager to join the team and begin working.


“It’s obvious that we have similar perspectives on football.”

I’m incredibly proud and grateful, he continued. I’m eager to join the group and begin this Barcelona saga.

“I want to thank Sevilla, but Barça is obviously the next stage in my career, therefore here I want to win every tournament,” the speaker said.
