Kounde is looking to rent Lukaku apartment as he looks forward to join Chelsea.
The saga continues, for now. Yesterday, the Jules Kounde to transfer saga went mad, and today, it hasn’t really let up either.
There is no done deal as of yet, but it would appear that little by little, hour by hour, a deal is getting closer. However, every update that comes that is positive surrounding Kounde joining Chelsea, is usually accompanied with the name ‘Barcelona’ somewhere in the report as well.
Even in this very positive report from Goal, who confirm once again just how close Kounde is to joining Chelsea, they have to mention Barcelona. Although they say it is ‘The Catalan media’ who are still pushing them as an option.
As well as this though, they say that Kounde will move into the former house of Romelu Lukaku in London when/if he joins Chelsea. I mean, if he’s got a crib sorted, then surely we are almost over the line now? And the fact he is not joining Sevilla on their pre-season tour…
