Bad news for Man City as Sevilla want to renew Kounde
Kounde is a fundamental player in Lopetegui's team. Monchi wants him to be at the club for a long time and so the board are clear that he must sign a new deal to prevent him going elsewhere.
According to 'Muchodeporte', Sevilla are aiming to increase his salary so that he is one of the highest paid players at the club. Even though he is only 21, his performances deserve it.
The French defender's contract runs until June 2024 and Sevilla are looking to extend his deal by a year as well as up his buyout clause to 90 million euros.
Another reason why he is likely to pena new deal is the good relationship there is both with the player, who never tried to force a move to Manchester this summer, and his agent.
