The president of Naples, Aurelio De Laurentiis, opened the door to the sale of Kalidou Koulibaly, tracked in particular by Manchester City. In the north of England, Pep Guardiola is indeed seeking to strengthen his workforce behind to return to conquer the title.
The Blues are already on the verge of signing Nathan Ake from Bournemouth, who will come in to bring competition to the center stage, but the club are still looking for a more experienced player to join the squad.
Although Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is reluctant to validate the departure of such a valuable player, he concedes that a deal could be reached if a suitable offer is presented later this summer.
“Kalidou is a great person, I would be terribly sad to lose him. But there is a time for everything, even to walk away, he told Sky Italia, seeming to open the door to a transfer. But the 90 million euros are not on the table so it takes two to make a deal. “
A player who for his part seems certain to leave San Paolo before the end of the summer is Arkadiusz Milik, at the end of his contract next season and who refused to extend. However, De Laurentiis has warned the Poland forward that he could spend a year on the sidelines if Napoli’s assessment is not met by potential suitors.
“He’s on the market as always. He hasn’t responded since we offered him a contract extension. This action will therefore lead to his departure.”the 71-year-old said of Milik’s current situation.
“Whoever gets the best deal will take it, there won’t be any discounts given to anyone. Otherwise, he risks staying in Napoli and possibly not making the coach’s caps.”
