From the moment he was appointed Barcelona coach, Ronald Koeman wanted to add a floor-rate brake to his squad.

One of the most prominent candidates was Jules Conde, who has been followed by Catalans since the beginning of his career in Bordeaux, and in the summer he even made an appeal to Sevilla.

Once they realized that the French brake's release clause stands at 75 million euros, Barcelona backed off and left it on the shelf.



The price scared even Manchester City, who already had some sort of deal with Conde, so at least according to reports.

"Yes, Pep Guardiola called, we spoke in Spanish," the then 22-year-old footballer confirmed to the French media.

"I was interested in joining him and was promised I would play, but it didn't work out."



Manchester City have selected Ruben Diaz and Conde's big move has been postponed for at least a year, with Manchester United currently the hot name and also Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid joining the race.

But that did not stop him from moving forward.

This summer, Europe's top clubs are expected to fight for Sevilla's brake, and this time the release clause will not deter them either.



In "Barcelona Week", where the Andalusians meet the Catalans both in the league and in the reciprocal of the Cup semi-final, Conde will be happy to show once again to the rival people that he is the modern brake.

Leo Messi has not yet scored against him, Barcelona have not beaten him and his solo goal in the first semi-final, Samuel Omititi will not forget in the near future.

Will the net balance be maintained?

Saturday at 17:00: Just before the cup rematch, Sevilla host Barcelona for a top-flight match

Conde, a native of Paris whose father is of Benini descent, came to the Bordeaux academy when he was 15, after moving in small groups of children.

When he was promoted to the reserve team, his mentor was Olivier Verdon, a defensive player whose mother is from Benin.

The three-year-old Vardon McConda was the first to get a chance on the senior team, but settled for just 10 minutes.

Two months later, in January 2018, it was Kunda's turn.

And once he got into the lineup, no one could take him out anymore.

"Jules is very mature and never stops progressing," complimented Patrick Batiston, Tony Schumacher's victim at the 1982 World Cup and coach of the Bordeaux reserve team.

"He was a leading player from the moment he came to us, reads the game great and has great technique. Now the continuation of his journey depends only on him."



Joclan Gurbank was the coach who raised the brake for the senior team and also gave him the first few minutes.

But his status was already shaken then, in the middle of the 2017/18 season, and within a few weeks Gustavo Poyet arrived in his place.

"After the signing, I attended a game against Nantes and sat in the stands next to the president," said the former Uruguayan player.

"Kunda was already a car player at the time and I liked what I saw. A 19-year-old boy, not tall at all, but very strong and athletic. I started thinking about how he fits in with me. I like the brake going forward with the ball to create an advantage, and I asked Kunda to do it. Not sure enough himself. After a month and a half, he came to see me and asked to practice in the afternoon as well. He wanted us to work personally on the long delivery and going out with the ball. Slowly he started to feel more comfortable also threatening the goal and practicing free kicks. He promised me he "There will still be the regular kicker. Even then, they called me from Sevilla. They were interested in the human angle, because professionally they already knew everything about him."



Sevilla waited another year.

She saw Conde complete a full season in the French league under three coaches (Ricardo Gomes and Paulo Sousa came after Poyet) and adapts to the style of each of them and the three-brake system, while at ex-Maccabi Tel Aviv he also played as a right-back.

"I loved the atmosphere that Poit brought to the team and I enjoyed working with him personally," Kunda said at the time.

"He also made me very funny. There was great energy in the team then and we also finished in sixth place. Sousa was much more demanding. He is very methodical and goes into great detail. We spent a lot of time analyzing things and watching video, and he helped me move forward."

In March 2019, Monchi returned to Sevilla and began building the new team.

The man who is considered the best sporting director in the world, knew of successful acquisitions from the French league (Gazzoj Krichobiak, Joffre Condogbia, Kevin Gmeiro, Wissam Ben Yader and Kalmon Langela) and began to load his shopping cart.

Lucas Ocampus came from Marseille, Diego Carlos was acquired from Nantes and then Conde was brought in to collaborate with him in the center of defense, as the most valuable acquisition player in the club's history.

A similar sum of 25 million euros was later paid for Ronny Lopez as well, but while this is Monchi's biggest failure in his second term, Conde is a huge success.



The acclimatization time in Spain was short and the duo Conde and Diego Carlos soon became one of the most esteemed in Europe.

The purchase from Bordeaux surprised many with its quietness and removed the fear of the problem of height (1.78 m, with shoes) with the help of excellent jumping and fantastic location.

Although Sevilla did not make the list in the league, they knew how to get a ticket to the Champions League and also finished with their favorite title when they won the Europa League after victories over Manchester United in the semi-finals and Inter in the final.



Conde's impressive ability in the playoffs almost contributed to a quick move, but his transformation from the most expensive acquisition in Sevilla history to the club's record sale was slightly delayed.

Meanwhile, he continues to amass fans for himself.

He is the brake that produces the most situations in La Liga, the best dribbler among the brakes and to the technical ability he adds game understanding and a lot of maturity.

His only dismissal in 143 games since advancing to the seniors was early in Bordeaux (second yellow in the Europa League playoffs against Ghent in August 2018) and this season he has received just three yellow cards in 32 games in all competitions.



He met every goal he set for himself, and marked the next goal as early as age 18.

Didier Deschamps loved his qualifying performances.

After a few individual games in Bordeaux's senior team, the Benin Football Association wanted Kunda to choose to represent their team.

The brakeman politely rejected the offer and made it clear even then that for him he could play for the French team already in the World Cup.

And we are talking about 2018.



But even in the young team of France was ignored until six months ago.

He has since made five appearances in the Euro qualifiers, including a 0-1 victory over Slovakia.

Didier Deschamps later complimented and confirmed that he was taken into account for the senior team: "He is a player who is constantly advancing, but he is also competing for a position where there is fierce competition. So far I have chosen other players, but he is still young and if he continues he can join us."



In the world champion squad, Omititi's position was vacated alongside Rafael Varane, but at the last gathering it was Personnel Kimpamba, Kalmon Langela and Kurt Zuma who were called up.

Dayo Opmecano has already played and conquered, and in addition to them there are also American Laporte, Issa Diop, Wesley Popana and others who consider themselves worthy of being included in the squad.

"The competition is not worrying but only spurs me on," Conde responded to a message from Madonna.

"His words are encouraging, he gave me motivation. I know the coach trusts young players and if anyone deserves a chance, he will not hesitate to give it to him. I will continue to work because my goal is to be part of the senior team."

And he will conquer this goal as well.
