Napoli put Koulibaly on the market

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Napoli are ready to sell Kalidou Koulibaly this summer because of wage cuts.

The defender has been on the verge of leaving for several years now, yet always remains, as nobody has approached the €80m asking price.

Today’s report maintains that could drop at the end of this season due to other considerations.

Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis is eager to cut down the wage bill, especially if they fail to qualify for the Champions League.

Koulibaly is the main drain on the club, as he receives €11m gross per year, which represents 10 per cent of the total Napoli wages.

Other big earners like Nikola Maksimovic and Elseid Hysaj are simply being allowed to leave as free agents when their contracts expire in June.

It’ll be the usual suspects in the running for Koulibaly, including Liverpool, Manchester United, PSG, Barcelona, Manchester City and Arsenal.
