Barcelona have registered all of their new signings apart from Jules Kounde.

Kounde wasn’t able to feature in Barcelona’s opening game against Rayo Vallecano.

According to transfer reporter Fabrizio Romano, Barcelona wants to register Jules Kounde as quickly as possible.

Fellow transfer reporter Gerard Romero has claimed that Barcelona have informed La Liga that they will make some sizeable reduction in the salary of their players in order to register the Frenchman.

With Barcelona desperate to register Kounde, the club is progressing in talks to offload Memphis Depay and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – to Juventus and Chelsea respectively.

After the registration of Kounde, Barcelona will announce Marcos Alonso signing and a new right-back.

Meanwhile, Frenkie de Jong is set to have a final showdown talk with Barcelona officials to decide his future.

The meeting will take place next week in which Barca will hope to find out whether the Dutchman is willing to lower his salary or not.

If an agreement isn’t reached, then De Jong will be told to leave the club before the end of the summer transfer window.

De Jong’s annual salary of €22m is said to be way beyond Joan Laporta’s strict wage limit, and the club and player must make a transfer decision as soon as possible.
