Manchester City have purportedly agreed personal terms with Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly, however they must find arrangement over a transfer fee.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has already signed Nathan Ake this summer as he hopes to support a leaky defence from last season, and he’ll be further weakened by the absence of Aymeric Laporte for the start of the season after he tested positive for Covid-19 this week.
While that is a momentary blow, it’s seemingly still an area of worry for the Manchester City boss, and it seems like the Premier League title hopefuls are moving closer to a world class solution.
As detailed by report, it’s guaranteed that Manchester City have agreed on personal terms with the Senegalese defender, with a three-year contract said to be on the table.
Notwithstanding, there is still no forward leap between the two clubs, and with Napoli requesting around €75m for their prized asset, it is not yet clear whether they will agree transfer fee with Napoli this summer.
Kalidou Koulibaly has without a doubt built up himself as probably the best centre-back in Europe as of late, showcasing extraordinary consistency with his quality, pace and reading of the game guaranteeing that he stands apart as a top defensive talent.
Further, with his poise and technical quality on the ball, Koulibaly will suit Guardiola’s style of play impeccably as far as building out from the back, thus Manchester City will without a doubt trust that they can reach a deal in the coming few weeks to add a significant piece to the squad.
