Kalidou Koulibaly is linked with a move to Manchester City this summer. Pep Guardiola has stressed on the need of a new defender. He wants Koulibaly to partner Aymeric Laporte at the back.
However new reports suggest that Liverpool too want Koulibaly! The Reds are planning on a shock move to bring in the defender. Moreover City and Napoli do not have the best transfer relations. This is due to the Jorginho deal to Chelsea in 2018.
Liverpool want Koulibaly!
Jurgen Klopp and his men want in on Kalidou Koulibaly. Merseyside giants Liverpool are looking to raid Manchester City. Reports suggest Klopp wants to strengthen his defence. Moreover Klopp has already signed three players. Thiago Alcantara, Diego Jota and Kostas Tsmiskias.
Manchester City are confident of signing Kalidou Koulibaly. The player has agreed personal terms. However Liverpool are using Sadio Mane to woo in Koulibaly. Both are Senegalese international.
Jurgen Klopp on transfer window
“It’s just about timing. Sometimes you buy before you sell, sometimes you sell before you buy. However sometimes different scenarios.
“Then you don’t buy now, but you buy later, and sometimes you earn the money back in different ways.
“The only thing which is always true with us is what we earned on football, we spend on football. That is the short summary of the philosophy of the club. One of the key points.
“We cannot just say: ‘This year we need this and that, and we cannot afford it’ – and I wouldn’t insist on it. But this season we worked constantly on improvement. The window itself leaves the window open.”
