‘I Wouldn’t Give Half Of That’ ‘If Pep Wants Him We Should Pay’ City Fans On Social Media Debate Defender’s £81m Asking Price

Napoli are prepared to offload centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly but president Aurelio De Laurentiis is refusing to sell for below €90m (£81m), according to reports in Italy.

Manchester City are believed to be favourites to land the 29-year-old, but the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool are also said to be keen on signing the defender this summer.

Other fans feel that the Manchester club should just pay what Napoli are asking for:

Napoli do appear to be operating under the assumption that the global health crisis will not affect transfer prices. If they don’t lower their demands, City are likely to look elsewhere.

Pep Guardiola’s side would be wise, though, to be patient. There are claims in Italy that De Laurentiis will be forced into selling some players in order to balance the books after already spending large sums on new signings.
