Watch: Man Utd target Jules Kounde scores great goal against Barcelona

Manchester United target Jules Kounde added a few extra millions onto his price tag with a brilliant solo goal as Sevilla beat Barcelona 2-0 in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final clash.

Having been linked with a move to Old Trafford in January, speculation persists that United are keeping tabs on Kounde ahead of a potential transfer in the summer.

While the centre-back will ultimately be judged on his defensive work, he showed there is more to his game than just stopping attacks in the first half against Barca.

The 22-year-old marauded forward, beating three defenders as he surged into the box and finished smartly past Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

That sound you can hear is Ed Woodward put a pillow over his lap.
