Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has confirmed the exits of players Kalidou Koulibably and Arkadiusz Milik.
However, the only reason Napoli hasn’t let go of the duo is that they are still waiting for the right offers. Up till now, none of the offers made have been satisfactory monetarily for the Serie A side.
“Koulibaly and Milik are both on their way out, transfer market permitting,” De Laurentiis told Canale 21 on Wednesday.
“So, if the transfer market allows us to sell these two excellent players, we will know how to replace them. If not, then we’ll discuss it again next year.”
Manchester City and Napoli have been trying to come to terms over an offer for Koulibaly for a while now, but City aren’t agreeing to match up to the €80m value for the defender.
The Napoli chief told Sky Italia: “Kalidou is a great person, I would be terribly sad to lose him. But there is a time for everything, even to move apart.
“But the €90m is not on the table and so it takes two to make a deal.”
Milik on the other hand has been linked with Roma for a while. Napoli are ready to sell him as a replacement for Roma’s Edin Džeko or to Juventus.
