Koulibaly’s agent meets Napoli to discuss Man City deal

Fali Ramadani, the agent of Kalidou Koulibaly, is holding crunch talks with Napoli about a potential move to Manchester City.

According to Radio Punto Nuovo (via AreaNapoli), Ramadani landed in Naples on Friday and is today meeting Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis.

The well-known intermediary will report Man City’s ‘strong interest’ in 29-year-old Koulibaly to De Laurentiis.

Ramadani will also try to soften Napoli’s position on an asking price, which is currently very high.

City are proposing €70-75m for Koulibaly, far below Napoli’s €90-100m asking price.

Senegalese star Koulibaly, one of Serie A‘s top defenders of recent years, is one of City’s main defensive targets.

However, the Premier League club have alternatives in case Napoli play hardball, with Bayern Munich-linked Diego Carlos another on their radar.

Ramadani’s other objectives

Fali Ramadani is not in Naples just to discuss Koulibaly’s future with Napoli.

The Partenopei are also showing a keen interest in Real Mallorca whizz-kid Luka Romero.

Aged 15 years and 219 days, the Argentine midfielder became the youngest ever player in La Liga last month.

Ramadani will also discuss Luka Jovic, with the Serb a back-up plan for Napoli in case their move for Victor Osimhen falls through.

Finally, defender Nikola Maksimović‘s contract renewal will be discussed with no hitches expected.
