Kalidou Koulibaly, who was announced at the beginning, will finally play a new season with Napoli. However, PSG and Manchester City struggled to welcome the Senegalese, who, in turn, had chosen between these two clubs.
In the final moments of the summer transfer window, Leonardo handled many projects. PSG’s sporting director managed to complete the arrival of a right-back (Florenzi), two midfielders (Danilo and Rafinha) and a striker (Kean), but no defender replaced Thiago Silva, who went to Chelsea. However, many players have been targeted, such as Kalidou Koulibaly. The Senegalese had an exit voucher from Aurelio De Laurentiis, President of Napoli, but his demands prevented Leonardo from making any concrete progress on the matter. But that wouldn’t have been the only obstacle on the way to PSG …
Persuaded Koulibaly to go to town?
As Corriere dello Sport stated on Tuesday, Kalidou Koulibaly had made his choice for his next club. The 29-year-old defender was determined to join Manchester City and even seemed confident of achieving his off-season goals. His departure was also expected within the club, but Pep Guardiola’s team ultimately decided not to comply with Napoli’s demands and positioned themselves on Ruben Dias, who was bought for € 68m. Kalidou Koulibaly would not be dejected and would be delighted to play a new season at Napoli with the aim of dethroning Juventus in Serie A.
