Liverpool way off Koulibaly price-tag

According to the Corriere dello Sport, Liverpool are offering €60m for Kalidou Koulibaly, but that’s a long way off Napoli’s €100m asking price.

The centre-back has been repeatedly linked with a move away from the Stadio San Paolo this summer, although the Partenopei have no intention of lowering his transfer valuation.

Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain were strong contenders, but Liverpool are now stepping up the pressure, as they want to form a sensational partnership with Virgil van Dijk.

Ancelotti: 'Napoli fought racism'

Carlo Ancelotti has explained how Napoli fought to ensure Kalidou Koulibaly was not racially abused again. “If you challenge people, things can change.”

The world of football is taking a stand against racism, with players in the Premier League taking a knee before games and wearing ‘Black Lives Matter’ on the back of their shirts.

“Football has an important role to play in educating people,” Ancelotti told The Guardian. “Millions follow footballers, watch what they do, hear what they say.”

Napoli set €100m price tags on Koulibaly and Fabian

Kalidou Koulibaly and Fabian Ruiz are being linked away from Napoli, but President Aurelio De Laurentiis has claimed he will only listen to the right offer.

The Senegalese defender Koulibaly has been targeted by the giants in Europe, with Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain reportedly chasing the centre-back.

The influential midfielder Fabian has emerged as a mark for the two Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona in recent weeks but De Laurentiis insisted that he doesn’t have to sell either of them unless he will get the right amount.

Leonardo: 'No big PSG transfers'

Paris Saint-Germain director Leonardo warns not to expect any ‘€100m’ transfers this summer, as the COVID-19 pandemic cost the club circa €200m.

The Ligue 1 giants are usually among the biggest spenders, but the decision to cut the French season short was particularly damaging.

“What happened has touched the whole planet, but it will also be felt on the transfer market,” Leonardo told Le Journal du Dimanche.

Koulibaly too expensive for PSG

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly pulling out of the race for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, as his price-tag remains over €100m.

According to Le Parisien, the Ligue 1 champions have decided he is too expensive as a replacement for Thiago Silva.

This comes after Napoli director Cristiano Giuntoli warned the COVID-19 crisis would affect only some transfers, but not others, as Koulibaly’s valuation remains intact.

That is from €100m to €120m for a club outside Italy for the Senegal international centre-back.
