Barcelona have confirmed the signing of Jules Kounde after Sevilla sporting director Monchi claimed Chelsea missed out on signing the defender because they had doubts over where he would fit in their squad.

Barcelona announced on Friday evening Kounde will sign a five-year deal at the Nou Camp when he is presented as a Barca player on Monday.

The 23-year-old will also have a one billion euros (£839.6m) release clause in his contract.

Kounde has already linked up with Xavi’s squad having taken part in his first training session at the club on Friday afternoon.

The former Bordeaux defender becomes Barca’s fifth summer signing after the arrivals of Robert Lewandwoski, Raphinha, Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen.

Thomas Tuchel’s side lost Antonio Rudiger and Christensen to Spanish football, with the duo joining Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively.
