A fan has uploaded a video that has made those who follow the transfer market take notice as it goes viral.
In it, the fan, whose named Esteban, asks FC Barcelona president Joan Laporta how their pursuit of Jules Koundé is going.
“How are things shaking on the Koundé deal?” the fan asks.
“Koundé, no. He’s been signed by Chelsea.” Laporta answers in the video.
The video was apparently filmed outside a hotel in the United States. Barcelona is currently touring the US during preseason playing friendly matches.
