The long search for a Vincent Kompany replacement seems to over – if this report is to be believed. Koulibaly has been a long-time target for City, with imperious performances in the Serie A attracting some of the worlds top clubs.
According to the Napoli based newspaper Il Mattino, Koulibaly will make the move to Manchester this summer in a deal worth a reported £72 million. The 29-year-old will also sign a five year contract at the club, which would keep him in blue until at least 2025.
Much has been said about Koulibaly’s age, but a player of his maturity and experience may just be what City need to sure up defensive issues that have been displayed this season. The Senegalese international also has vast experience in the Champions League – something City are desperate to win.
