Chelsea launch bid for Napoli defender Koulibaly; contract tabled

Kalidou Koulibaly, a defender for Napoli, is the subject of an offer from Chelsea. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Chelsea has already presented Koulibaly with his contract terms. The 30-year-old has been given personal terms of £8.5 million annually. That equals slightly over £160k per week.

However, it is rumored that Napoli is asking £34 million for their star center-back. With only a year left on Koulibaly’s current deal, the Serie A team might be forced into a sale this summer. Barcelona is reportedly considering a move for the Senegalese international.
