Jules Kounde will leave Sevilla this summer and could move to England to join Chelsea, and all his details have now been revealed, including his value in 2022.
The 23-year-old is the subject of big transfer interest from Chelsea and Barcelona, with both sides battling for his signature as Sevilla looked set to sell the France international to generate some much-needed revenue.
Kounde caught the eye of Europe’s elite clubs last summer but is now playing on the biggest stage.
What is Jules Kounde’s fortune?
As of 2022, Kounde has an estimated net worth of between £10m and £12m, taking into account all of his earnings, also including endorsements and sponsorships, which were provided by SalarySport.
He currently earns £69,000 a week with Sevilla which brings in a total of around £3.5million a year.
Kounde has been paid just under £9million throughout his career so far – £8,937,760 to be exact – and if he leaves to join Chelsea or Barcelona he is likely to earn a salary increase.
The centre-back got his first and only move of 2019 after coming through the ranks at Bordeaux in France. He joined Sevilla for £22.5m, signing a five-year contract at Sevilla.
He won the Nations League with his country France in 2021, while winning the Europa League with Sevilla in the 2019/20 season.
Kounde currently plays for Sevilla, who are managed by Julen Lopetegui, and has made 133 appearances for the Spanish side. He also made 11 appearances for France.
Following his failed move to Chelsea in the summer of 2021, Kounde admitted he was affected by the transfer not materializing, admitting: “Yes (I was affected) a bit, but now I have solved the problem.”
A year later, he got his transfer. He showed up for training with Sevilla on Wednesday, July 20, but wasn’t with his teammates.
Lopetegui said“Koundé arrived at Ciudad Deportiva from Sevilla FC but did not train with his teammates. Departure is imminent.
A decision has yet to be made as negotiations continue between all parties – clubs, players and representatives.
He left Sevilla’s training ground soon after, signing autographs and taking photos, as his big move awaited him.
Will he stay in Spain or go abroad? Only time will tell for the 23-year-old it looks like it will be Chelsea but what is certain is that he will be in line for a bumper pay rise.
