Balague says it all after opening up on perfect Chelsea statement signing Koulibaly
Chelsea will not sign Kalidou Koulibaly in the next transfer window, according to Spanish expert Guillem Balague.
There have been some reports in the media suggesting that we are planning for potential new signings in this coming transfer window, as they seek to improve the side.
It will mean that Frank Lampard will be able to delve into the clubs transfer kitty and add a few players to the squad that will add some experience, and quality in the right areas of the pitch, and one name that will be high up on the shopping list is Koulibaly.
Big, powerful, a leader and one of the very best central defenders in the game right now, Koulibaly has been outstanding for Napoli over the past few seasons and his performances has attracted all sorts of interest from the games biggest clubs.
However, Balague has come out and given the fans an update on a possible deal for the powerhouse, who could cost his next club close to £100 million to secure.
European football expert Guillem Balague said on his YouTube channel: “Basically any link like with Koulibaly of Napoli, or any other big player, will face the impossibility of No 1: raising the money, and No 2: spending that kind of money that’s necessary to get a player like this because nobody wants to make a huge investment into a player. That’s quite clear.
“Neither PSG, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City – nobody wants to put £100m on a player.
“He’s more, £100m-plus is what Koulibaly will cost, so forget about that.
“Chelsea have got a priority of course, full-back No 1 and No 2 quite clearly they want a striker.”
We ll that is a massive bummer if that is true isnt it? Koulibaly is the perfect STATEMENT SIGNING we need, it is simply that simple!
