Napoli raise fee for defender Kalidou Koulibaly

Teams considering a move for Kalidou Koulibaly in the upcoming transfer would have to think twice as the centre-back’s release fee has been hiked up by his Serie A club, Napoli.

Initially pegged at €80 million, the Senegal international is now in the market for €100 million, according to a statement by his side’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis.

Two European giants Manchester United and Paris Saint Germain have expressed interest in the 28-year-old, with the Red Devils ready to open talks while the price was €80 million.

Koulibaly joined Napoli from Belgian club Genk in 2014, becoming an influential player at Stadio San Paolo where he boasts of 10 goals.

It is unclear when the summer transfer window will open due to the current disruption of the global football calendar due the coronavirus pandemic.
