According to a report by Italian publication Corriere Dello Sport, Kalidou Koulibaly has made his intentions clear about his future. The Senegalese international – a target for Barcelona and Chelsea – seemingly does not want to remain in Serie A, as he will not join Juventus or sign a new contract with Napoli. Kalidou Koulibaly has spent most of his professional career with Napoli, joining the Partenopei when he was still a promising young defender. And the 31-year-old has come leaps and bounds in the last eight years, establishing himself as one of the best defenders in Serie A.
Meanwhile, the interest from Chelsea stems from the departures of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, with the former moving to Real Madrid and the latter joining Barcelona. With Cesar Azpilicueta facing an uncertain future at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea will need to invest in a top-class centre-back, with Koulibaly an option worth considering.
Barcelona and Chelsea also face stiff competition from Juventus for Koulibaly, with the Serie A giants recently meeting his entourage. But the 31-year-old does not want to join the Bianconeri in the summer transfer window. At the same time, Koulibaly has no interest in signing a new contract with Napoli.
