Kalidou Koulibaly leaves Serie A after 8 seasons with Napoli, where he was the undisputed starter and one of the best defenders of the Italian championship.
The 31-year-old Senegalese has arrived in London this evening, where tomorrow morning he will undergo medical examinations on behalf of Chelsea and if everything goes well, then he will sign the contract that will bind him with the Londoners for four seasons. next.
The agreement between Chelsea and Napoli has been reached for the figure of 38 million euros, plus two more in the form of bonuses, while Koulibaly himself is expected to benefit from a salary of 8 million euros in the club run by Thomas Tuchel.
This was clearly a forced sale for the Neapolitans, who tried several times to renew Koulibaly’s contract, but the Senegalese rejected all offers, making it clear that he would be leaving.
In this way, De Laurentiis chose to accept Chelsea’s millions this summer, in order not to lose the Senegalese with zero parameters next summer.
