Agent: Barca like Koulibaly, but...

Kalidou Koulibaly’s former agent claims Barcelona ‘like’ the Napoli defender, who ‘can play for any team in the world’.

Koulibaly ended speculation about his future by signing a new contract with Napoli, but Bruno Satin – who until now had represented the stopper – revealed Barca were still following his ex-client.

“Are Barcelona interested in Koulibaly? Everyone saw how good he was on Wednesday,” he told Radio CRC.

“Kalidou can play for any team in the world, be it Barcelona, Real Madrid or Bayern Munich. He recently renewed his contract, but we’re seeing that Pique isn’t going through a good spell at Barcelona.

“Does Braida like Koulibaly? Yes, for sure. We talked about him on Wednesday at the San Paolo. After that, there are other factors that need to be addressed.

“How much is Kalidou worth? He’s very strong and quick. He’s learned so much from all the Coaches he’s worked with, from those in Belgium to Benitez and Sarri.

“It must be remembered that since they signed him from Genk for €, they’ve turned down important offers.

“Why did Koulibaly leave me? Unfortunately, it may seem strange but it wasn’t his decision. He had pressure from his family.

“Am I still Kalidou’s friend? Yes, he invited me to eat after the game on Wednesday.”
