Chelsea FC transfer news: Kalidou Koulibaly's agent coy on rumours surrounding defender's future
Chelsea failed with a £47million bid for Koulibaly in the summer of 2016
The agent of Chelsea target Kalidou Koulibaly cannot guarantee that his client will be at Napoli next season.
The defender has enjoyed another brilliant season in Italy and once again he is the source of intense transfer speculation.
Chelsea, who failed with a £47m bid for the 26-year-old in the summer of 2016, maintain a strong interest.
Arsenal and Manchester United have also scouted the centre-back, while Juventus are keeping tabs on him too.
Napoli at present have no plans to sell Koulibaly, who has been at the club for four seasons now.
However the Senegal international’s agent, Bruno Satin, cannot confirm that his client won’t look to leave.
“It’s important to understand how the season will end because important players want to play the Champions League,” Satin told Radio Crc.
“Is Koulibaly worth €100m (£89m)? The market and [Napoli president Aurelio] De Laurentiis will decide because Kalidou has no release clause.
“The president may also decide to keep him because he considers him important for the team.
“I don’t know if these three games will be his last for Napoli because there have been offers every year, but Koulibaly has always ended up staying, so he won’t necessarily leave.
“It’s difficult to make predictions now.”
