Soon after Jules Kounde's move to Barcelona became official, Real Madrid midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni reposted an Instagram picture from NBA Europe of him together with Jules at a basketball game. He captioned it: "Blood."
The reason for it is quite simple - Kounde and Tchouameni are very close friends. Perhaps the Madrid midfielder was celebrating the fact that Jules will now be playing for one of the biggest teams in the world, although they will be rivals from now on.
Both Jules and Aurelien came through the ranks at Bordeaux. They played together for one season in France at the professional level and they also meet often on international duty.
This summer, they went on vacation to Miami together, that's where the picture in question was taken.
