Koulibaly’s words from his retirement with Senegal do not let Napoli fans sleep peacefully. “Where will I play in the future? I still don’t know. I don’t want to lie to you, so I say we’ll see in the next few days.” No certainty of farewell, but at the same time no confirmation of stay. Koulibaly’s future hangs in the balance, his contract will expire in a year (June 2023) and there is no renewal agreement with Napoli. Currently the player receives 6 million euros a year, De Laurentiis is willing to offer him a new contract with a lower salary. But it is not really in Koulibaly’s plans that to his last major signing of his career (in a month he will be 31 years old) he wants a great chance in a top club or at least stay in the blue for the same amount. The latter hypothesis will hardly happen given that Napoli need to reduce the salary ceiling by cutting as much as possible. The revolution has already begun and the sports director Giuntoli is moving very actively on the market. Kvaratskhelia and Olivera the two hits already announced, now we are working to get to Ostigard of Brighton as soon as possible (he would replace Tuanzebe, who did not convince).
AFTER KOULIBALY – Napoli however reflects, Koulibaly could also leave next year by going away on a free transfer or signing the renewal during the current season. But a sale already in this market session is a scenario to be taken into consideration. Difficult to replace, but in one way we will have to move forward. The strongest name in Serie A is that of Bremer. He may represent the right heir, but it is true that the cost of the card will not be too easy for De Laurentiis’ economic plans.
GOAL SENESI – Marcos has been in Giuntoli’s notebook for some time now Sienese. The Italian-Argentine defender showed himself even more this year by arriving in the Conference League final with Feyenoord. For less than 15-20 million it will be practically impossible to snatch him from the Dutch club, but an investment will certainly be made to eventually make up for a “heavy” start like that of Koulibaly.
LUCUMÌ AND KIM – Clearly there is no single goal, several polls have been made of it. Primarily for Jhon Lucumì, Genk defender born in 1998. Just where Koulibaly came from eight years ago. Napoli tested the ground to understand its feasibility. The player can no longer be sold like a year ago, but competition from theAtalantawho keeps the spotlight on the Colombian. An old ball from Giuntoli is Kim Min-jae, South Korean class ’96 in force at Fenerbahce. He had already tried it in January, when with the departure of Manolas Napoli was looking for a new addition, but in the end the choice fell on Tuanzebe. He who knows it may not be the right time.
