FC Barcelona wants to reinforce the central duo with a guaranteed footballer. That is why the sports management would have communicated with Kalidou Koulibaly's environment before he accepts Napoli's latest offer
The Barcelona wants to fulfil the requirements of Xavi Hernández of face to the next market of signings. The club has to reinforce if it wants to compete by all the titles, and the defence is one of the sectors that needs more attention. It is thus that the Barcelona group, in base to an information desvelada by the newspaper 'ACE', has gone back to restart the contacts by Kalidou Koulibaly, the defender of the Napoli.
According to the source, the sportive direction has communicated with Fali Ramadini, agent of the player, to ask him that it do not accept still the offer of renewal that has on his table. This because the interest of the Barça in hiring him keeps intact and the own technician is the main valedor of his signing. With an agreement until 2023, the Senegalese could 'change of airs' in summer and like this the Italians will be able to take out 'cut' of his traspaso.
From it does several months the Catalans are evaluating his exert, since they consider him an ideal player to reinforce the sportive project and like this fulfil with the pattern of two players of quality in each position. His exit with the balloon and his aerial power do him the perfect pair for Ronald Araújo, in addition to being the direct spare of Gerard Hammered, that in the best of the cases subtracts him a year more than good football.
With 30 years, the Napoli will not consider a lower offer to the 40 million euros although it could leave free in the next campaign. The trasalpinos neither are interested in an exchange of players that abarate the transaction, by what the club will have to do the pertinent accounts and give him gone out to several footballers in case that they go in of full in a negotiation.
With Koulibaly all would be quite advanced and already there would be an offer until 2026 on the table. Nevertheless, so much Clément Lenglet like Samuel Umtiti will have to look for other destinations, since Xavi will not have they for the 2022/23. In spite of that have sounded a lot of names, the African is the main aim for the saga and everything will go clearing in the next days, when the course of the season was directed.
