Report: ADL still wants €100m for Koulibaly

Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis will reportedly demand €100m for Kalidou Koulibaly, regardless of the financial crisis in football.

Il Corriere dello Sport writes that De Laurentiis has no intensions of lowering the asking price for the Senegal international, amid interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United.

The 28-year-old has been linked with a move away from the San Paolo this summer and the patron seems willing to part ways with the former KRC Genk star if the price is right.

“There’s a great desire to start over from everyone,” Manolas told Radio Kiss Kiss.

United, City or PSG for Koulibaly

Kalidou Koulibaly will leave Napoli this summer for Manchester United, Manchester City or Paris Saint-Germain, according to La Repubblica.

Koulibaly has been at Napoli since 2014 and Aurelio De Laurentiis has resisted several big offers for the defender over the years.

However, La Repubblica claims De Laurentiis will finally relent at the end of the season, providing he receives a suitable bid.

The President once boasted of rejecting offers in the region of €100m, but the coronavirus pandemic seems to have put pay to that kind of figure.

Napoli ramp up Pezzella pressure

Napoli are reportedly intensifying their pursuit of Fiorentina captain German Pezzella for next season.

According to Calciomercato.com, the negotiations have already begun with the Argentina international centre-back’s agent.

Fiorentina certainly won’t be eager to let him go, as the 28-year-old is not only a key figure in their defence, but also wears the captain’s armband.

Pezzella is recovering after testing positive for coronavirus, one of several Viola players who caught the highly-contagious illness.
