Sevilla defender Jules Kounde breaks silence on Manchester City interest

Sevilla defender Jules Kounde has broken silence on Manchester City interest. The 21-year-old has been linked with the move to Etihad for the summer transfer window, though the two sides haven't reached an agreement over the transfer fee. During his international duty for France under-21s, Kounde has revealed it could have been a 'good opportunity' to join City, while he will continue to work hard to reach the top. He told Canal Plus: “It's part of my progression and I'm doing whatever it takes to make it happen. "I was obviously happy [with City's interest]. It would have been a good opportunity, but I'm in Seville and I'm very happy there." Kounde's agent, Jonathan Kebe, also spoke about City's interest, saying: “Any footballer likes to talk about his game. Of course, it is a compliment that a club as important as Manchester City is interested in you. “But Koundé is a different boy in some ways. Despite his age, he’s a very mature person, who knows that the only thing that should concern him is day to day. “Pressure Sevilla to have gone to Manchester City? No, no. We don’t even talk about it. There was an offer, the club studied it, said ‘no’, and that’s it. There’s no more. “We will never leave if Sevilla doesn’t want us to. Sometimes a player’s future depends on three parties, the footballer himself, the club who wants to buy, and, of course, the club he’s owned by. There is Sevilla."
