According to a report from journalist Jose Alvarez Haya, Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly ‘wants to sign‘ for Man City – with the player convinced he can become instrumental at the Etihad alongside Aymeric Laporte.
Koulibaly, who has started 15 Serie A games for the club this season, is now being heavily touted with a move to Eastlands following the revelation that he is ‘convinced‘ he can become a star man for Pep Guardiola.
Should City sign Koulibaly?
Yes, exactly what we need
No, far too expensive
Indeed, as per Alvarez Haya on Twitter, Koulibaly has received numerous offers from Spain, France and England but has his sights set on a City move – prompting some Sky Blues to beg director of football Txiki Begiristain to snap up the Senegalese stalwart.
City’s defensive issues this season have been well documented, as evident by our recent 2-1 loss to Chelsea, where a sloppy opening goal set us on our way to an eighth defeat in the league this season.
Now, to solve the issue, these supporters think Koulibaly could be the answer – find all of their best comments down below.
Koulibaly ticks every box. Strong, powerful, 2 footed, leader, reads game well, world class. No messing with potential here, just get him signed. Him & Laporte would be mouthwatering. World’s looking brighter already.
