Napoli: Koulibaly renewal ready

Napoli are about to renew Kalidou Koulibaly's contract, with a €65m buy-out clause only valid internationally.

The defender released some surprisingly aggressive statements against his club this summer in an effort to get himself sold, but president Aurelio De Laurentiis was having none of it.

In the end Koulibaly stayed put, but a new deal is about to be signed that will ensure he stays on the long term.

According to Il Mattino, he is about to sign a new contract which will double his wages, from €800,000 yearly to €1.9m.

The deal will also include a highly pricey buy-out clause set at €65m, but it will only be valid for clubs outside of Italy, preventing new cases like that of Gonzalo Higuain being raided by Juventus.
