In the last few days, the Spanish media have circulated that Jules Kounde will leave Barcelona during the summer transfer window.
This is due to the fact that the player wants to play in the center of the defense, while at Barcelona he mostly played as a right defender.
However, it was coach Xavi Hernandez who confirmed the Frenchman for the next season as well.
Xavi has stated that he had a meeting with Kounde and the latter has confirmed that he will stay at Camp Nou.
“I spoke to Kounde and I was very clear and direct with him. I know there are many stories about his future, but I can tell you for sure that Kounde left happy from the meeting we had.”
“And I am equally happy, there is no problem between the parties. The conversation was clear and there is no longer any issue to be discussed”, Xavi declared.
The 24-year-old has played 38 games this season, scoring one goal and assisting six others.
