This is one more transfer window where Napoli hope to make some huge money with the sale of Kalidou Koulibaly, but clubs struggle to pay the price demanded.
Manchester City are still pointed out as the main suitors to sign the 29-year-old, but according to Calcio Mercato today, there are some particular difficulties for Pep Guardiola’s side to find a deal with the Serie A club.
It’s again claimed there’s still some bad blood between Manchester City and Napoli due to the negotiations for Jorginho, who ended up moving to Chelsea in 2018.
The report says the Citizens don’t negotiate directly with the Serie A side, and that’s why agent Fali Ramadani is the one handling the talks.
Calcio Mercato claims that Manchester City may end up making Napoli ‘pay’ for their actions now, and that’s why the English club ‘can’t be trusted’ in terms of going for Koulibaly in the current transfer window.
Especially because they’re now heavily linked to José Gimenez from Atletico Madrid.
