Jules Kounde registered by Barcelona?

Jules Kounde has reportedly been registered as a Barcelona player.

The defender arrived at Camp Nou from Sevilla in July, joining Raphinha, Robert Lewandowski, Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen as Barcelona’s summer signings.

However, due to Barcelona’s economic situation and the La Liga salary cap, the Catalan giants had to wait until the eve of the new season to register four of their five additions.

The only player that was not registered was Kounde, who has been unable to feature in Barcelona’s opening two league games.

Although, according to The Athletic’s David Ornstein, Barcelona have now completed the registration of the France international.

The departure of Samuel Umtiti to Lecce on a loan deal has helped free up finances, while Barcelona have also reportedly reduced some add-ons on current players’ contracts to assist in Kounde’s registration.

With Kounde registered with La Liga, he could make his competitive debut for the club at the Camp Nou on Sunday against newly-promoted Real Valladolid.
