Kalidou Koulibaly: Barca? I can't say more, I can't lie

The Senegalese defender has been a key player over the years for Napoli

Kalidou Koulibaly is Barcelona’s priority to reinforce in central defence. He’s got a year left on his deal and he’s a market opportunity, although the Blaugrana are dealing with other issues first. The Senegalese defender has rejected his Napoli renewal offer and he spoke after his national team’s game against Rwanda.

“For the moment I will go on holiday to Senegal and later we will see. Barcelona? I can’t say anything. I can’t lie. I have focused on the work with my national team and I don’t want to know anything else.”

Koulibaly added that everything could be solved quickly after he gets back. 

“Now we will go to rest and when I return to Europe everything will become known quickly.” 

He has told Napoli that he wants to leave and not go for free next summer. The club have rejected various offers in recent years but this time they will likely sell to get some money for him.

Barcelona spoke with Napoli and they asked for 40 million euros, but Barcelona don’t think the price is market appropriate. They will try and lower it by offering Pjanic.
