Barcelona’s Star Defender Faces Uncertain Future Amid Growing Interest from PSG

Paris Saint-Germain has a history of luring talent away from FC Barcelona, having successfully acquired players like Neymar Jr., Xavi Simons, and Ousmane Dembélé. And it seems they may not be done yet.

A few days ago, a report surfaced that PSG are interested in Jules Koundé and Héctor Fort. The latest information on this rumor focuses on the Frenchman, who fits the center-back need and preference for French talent that the capital club have now. 

Mundo Deportivo reports that it’s uncertain whether Koundé will stay with the club. There’s speculation about a potential sale, and all attention seems to be on him. A few weeks ago, a PSG representative discussed his situation with Barça. Despite his current contract, his future with the club isn’t assured.

The Ligue 1 giants will have money to spend and a need to bolster the center-back position this summer. One possible determining factor as to whether they push for the 25-year-old is how he performs against them in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal tie.

If PSG seems convinced of his performance, they could ramp up their pursuit. However, if he disappoints over the next 180 minutes, then the Parisians will likely look elsewhere to bolster their central defense.
