Kalidou Koulibaly and Napoli in move stalemate as Premier League top clubs circle
Kalidou Koulibaly has developed as a world class Premier League transfer target and in the midst of enthusiasm from the likes of both Manchester clubs and Chelsea, mixed messages are exuding from Naples
Napoli boss Aurelio de Laurentiis has told potential admirers that Kalidou Koulibaly will just leave for £81m this summer.
Napoli owner want a world record fee for the centre-back to leave with the exceptionally rated Senegalese defender.
Kalidou Koulibaly, 29, has gone through six years in Naples.
However, he has been anticipated to leave this summer, with the Partenopei not in next season’s Champions League, except if they win the current year’s competition one month from now.
Both Manchester City and Manchester United have been connected with an expected move, maybe most quite Pep Guardiola’s side, as they look for a partner for Aymeric Laporte. Chelsea as well, with Frank Lampard needing to harden up his defence.
Anyway in the midst of recommendations that the coronavirus emergency and no Champions League cash could see Napoli hope to cash in at a lower value, De Laurentiis demands they will stand firm.
Kalidou is a superb individual and obviously it’d be pitiful to lose him,” the Napoli boss revealed.
Everything has a season and a spot, even with regards to heading out in our own direction.
Having said that, we don’t have £81m on the table and regardless, it takes two to separate.
It shows up the old hand is endeavoring to amplify his benefit, as you would anticipate.
He realizes that if he’s to get the most feasible for Koulibaly, at that point this summer truly is his last possibility.
De Laurentiis was looking for £90m back in June. As time passes by, that figure is gradually descending. How much further will it go?
As far as it matters for him, Kalidou Koulibaly has clarified that he isn’t requesting to leave. Not, apparently, does he especially need to.
What’s more, he has even expressed that, he is getting to some degree irritated about the consistent hypothesis, while he just considers playing once again.
In football, no one can tell what occurs. I never had conversation with Napoli about leaving, he told Gazzetta dello Sport this week.
If we need to discover an answer, we will discover it, however I have never talked about the transfer market.
I likewise also in the papers about my future. In any case, I just need to consider playing, I am 100 percent committed to Napoli and it pesters me to be connected, each day, to either European club.
We will perceive what the president will choose and if he proposes to extended my contract, that would permit me to end my career here.
Right now, I despite everything have a three-year contract and I am not considering whatever else but Napoli.
The way things are, Kalidou Koulibaly appears to be content where he is. Noises of his exit don’t particularly originate from he and his camp either.
However, should an offer give De Laurentiis definitely what he needs, at that point the defender likely could be guided out the leave, whether or not he’s glad to remain.
