According to reports from Calciomercato, Napoli won’t demand anything less than €150 million. Koulibaly joined Napoli from Genk in 2014 on a transfer fee of £6.5 million. He has since played 194 matches for the Gli Azzurri, scoring 8 goals and providing 7 assists.
This season, the Senegal international has been in fine form for Napoli, providing two assists from 30 appearances. Koulibaly’s performances for Napoli in the past few years have made him one of the best defenders in the world. Several clubs have shown their interest in signing the 27-year old. These include Manchester United who had a bid of £95 million turned down.
Koulibaly’s current contract with Napoli runs out in the summer of 2023. Napoli are keen to keep Koulibaly and will give him a new contract and are also willing to make his yearly salary €6.5 million. However, if any club wants to sign him, Napoli will demand at least €150 million.
Despite Napoli turning one bid down, Manchester United are still keen to add Napoli as they are in dire need of a quality defender. Additionally, Barcelona are also interested in signing the Senegalese centre-back. Napoli President Aurelio de Laurentis has reportedly said Koulibaly that he is prepared to do anything to keep him.
