Forcing Frenchman Jules Kounde to smile now is an herculean task after his desire to move to Stamford bridge hit the rocks with a bang.
The transfer window shut on to put paid to the dream and Kounde is not taking it lightly with Sevilla.
Kounde has ignored phone calls from Sevilla as he is furious with them for blocking his move to Chelsea, according to a report.
The centre-back looked set to move to Stamford Bridge for £47m, before Sevilla turned to Oliver Twist increased their asking price and the Blues still celebrating the return of Lukaku threw in the towel.
The Spanish side’s sporting director Monchi stated in a press conference that the club would not sell Kounde unless his £68m release clause was met.
The Spanish Football Podcast reports that the 22-year-old is annoyed by Sevilla’s actions and that he is now not answering the phone to Monchi or manager Julen Lopetegui.
Kounde was not included in the matchday squad for Sevilla’s La Liga fixture with Elche last weekend as the club were concerned he was not in the right frame of mind to play.
The defender is currently away on international duty with France looking to add to his three caps for the national team.
