A transfer with amazing financial parameters could have happened in the last hours of the transfer market this summer. Chelsea has had an offer valued at 58 million euros to Napoli for the defender Kalidou Koulibaly.
But the President of the Italians, Aurelio de Laurentiis of Italians boast that he refused to his colleague Roman Abramovich from London and broke up the bid. A big fan of the footballer player is also the manager of the Londoners Antonio Conte.
`In the last days, even hours of the transfer market, we have received an offer from Chelsea. It was about 58 million euros and was for the signature of Koulibaly, but I refused it. Conte will probably say it`s a lie, but offered for him at first 30, then 40, then 50 and 58 million euros in the end.
`But I had already made the decision to part with Kalidou and he will stay with us this season. Next summer we can talk again, but for now, we put the end of the talks.`, said De Laurentiis.
Over the past summer, Napoli has already made an amazing outgoing transfer after they sold Gonzalo Higuain to Juventus for over 90 million euros. And probably they didn`t need another sale.
