Manchester City apparently fizzled with an offer of £55m plus bonuses for Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly throughout the summer transfer window.
The Senegal defender has continued with his relationship with Napoli, notwithstanding incessant hypothesis with respect to his future at Stadio San Paolo.
Manchester City were one of various clubs who were keen on signing the Senegal international, who is viewed as Napoli’s most valued asset.
Notwithstanding, Calciomercato claims that Manchester City were only set to pay £55m, which was fundamentally beneath Napoli’s asking price.
The report says that president Aurelio De Laurentiis would have possibly considered heading out in different directions with the 29-year-old if the club got in overabundance of £75m.
Kalidou Koulibaly turns 30 years old in June, which will probably bring about his valuation being decreased except if he extends his contract past 2023.
