Kalidou Koulibaly finally breaks silence on his €100m price tag and Chelsea rumours

Kalidou Koulibaly has insisted that he is concentrating on the World Cup amidst rumours of him being a Chelsea player next season.

The Senegal and Napoli defender has been linked with a move to London in recent weeks but he stated that despite a crazy price tag of €100m on his head, he was not gettin distracted from the work at hand with the national side.

Koulibaly was quoted by the Metro as saying:

“€100m, if you tell my parents this figure I think they’ll have a good laugh!

“I don’t think for a minute about my future because we’ve worked for three years to be here and if something may confuse me during the World Cup I will leave it aside because I want to be 100 per cent focused on the World Cup.”

Koulibaly would be an amazing purchase for us given that we had our problems with the central defensive pairing. Gary Cahill isn’t getting any younger and Antonio Rudiger had an average campaign last time around.

The Senegal star can lead the defence for a number of years to come but the board might have reservations about the €100m being quoted for the 27-year-old.

We have to build a squad that can challenge for the top-four spot next season and Koulibaly could well be the base for a quality season at Stamford Bridge.
