Transfer: I was clear to him – Barcelona coach, Xavi confirms talks with Kounde


Barcelona coach, Xavi has confirmed that he has held talks with defender Jules Kounde after reports emerged earlier this week that the player had made a transfer request to leave Camp Nou.

Reports had emerged that Kounde had made a transfer request after being played out of position by Xavi.

But speaking after Barcelona’s 3-1 defeat at Real Valladolid, Xavi confirmed talks had been held as he was clear with Kounde.

“I spoke with Koundé and I was clear with him. I know there are a lot of stories — but the player left the meeting happy and same for me. There are no problems,” Xavi said at his post-match press conference.

“The conversation has been clear, no problem and no issues.”
