Chelsea agree personal terms with Jules Kunde as Sevilla deny Barcelona speculation

The summer transfer window is here, and there’s plenty of gossip swirling about who’s moving where. Transfer Talk brings you all the latest buzz on rumours, comings and goings and, of course, done deals!

TOP STORY: Jules Kounde is still on the way to Chelsea, despite reports of Barcelona hijacking the deal

Recent reports from Spain have speculated that Jules Kunde has turned down a five-year-contract with Chelsea to wait for a move to Barcelona. However, Marca reports that Sevilla have confirmed that they have not received an offer for the 23-year-old, and they are yet to be approached by the Catalan side.

Although Xavi Hernandez holds the center-back in high esteem, the LaLiga side are reportedly offput by the transfer fee and are currently unable to compete financially with the Blues.

A last-minute swoop is therefore unlikely, as the France international has already come to an agreement with the Premier League side, in a deal already reported to be worth £51m, including £4m in add-ons, as per the Sun.

A move to west London will make Kounde Thomas Tuchel’s third major signing this summer, following the arrivals of Kalidou Koulibaly and Raheem Sterling.

Paper Gossip

– Manchester United are set to make an offer for Inter Milan’s Denzel Dumfries after they offload Aaron Wan-Bissaka, according to Gazetta dello Sport. The 26-year-old joined the Nerazzurri last summer and has three years remaining on his contract. The Serie A side included the defender in negotiations with Chelsea for Romelu Lukaku, but the Blues rejected the wing-back as part of the loan deal. The Red Devils reportedly look to fund the signing of the Netherlands international by selling Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Although Roma are reportedly interested in the 24-year-old defender, they are yet to propose a formal offer, with Crystal Palace also eyeing a move for the England international.

– Atletico Madrid have stepped up their pursuit of Cristiano Ronaldo by placing Antoine Griezmann on their transfer list, reports The Times. Los Rojiblancos are reportedly looking to fund a move for the 37-year-old striker from Manchester United by offering Griezmann to potential suitors in hopes of removing the 31-year-old’s sizeable salary from their wage bill. The Portugal international is reportedly interested in a move to the Wanda Metropolitano, which would promise Champions League football next season, despite spending nine seasons with their rivals, Real Madrid.

– Juventus are looking to part ways with Adrien Rabbit this summer, and this could involve a swap deal with PSG for Leandro Paredes, as per Tuttosport. The Bianconeri are reportedly requesting a transfer fee between £12.7m to £17m for the 27-year-old, who is one of the squad’s highest earners. The Lebanese, who has one year left on his current deal, is leased for a move to France, with Lyon reportedly leading interest. However, the France international could return to PSG after his departure on a free transfer in 2019, as the Italian side look to acquire Paredes from the Ligue 1 champions.
