Kalidou Koulibaly (Chelsea) is classified as a target for release after one season, and Juventus is interested.
Multiple British media outlets, including the ‘Evening Standard’, reported that Chelsea would send at least eight players during the summer transfer window. Koulibaly, Loftus Cheek, Conor Gallagher, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Hakim Ziyesh, Christian Pulisic and Edouard Mendy were named.
Koulibaly is the predecessor of Kim Min-jae (Napoli). Napoli said goodbye to Koulibaly, who had been a staple centre-back, and replaced him with Kim Min-jae. Koulibaly entered the English Premier League (EPL) stage as the best defender in Italy’s Serie A, but is on the verge of being released after one season. Chelsea owner Todd Boley is said to be considering selling Koulibaly, who has been plagued by sluggishness and injuries since his debut season.
Chelsea are having their worst season this season. It is staying in the mid-table with 11th place in the EPL and is on the decline despite several manager changes. Coach Thomas Tuchel was sacked early in the season, and manager Graham Porter, who took over after that, also recently resigned. Coach Frank Lampard decided to temporarily take over the helm until this season, but his performance deteriorated further. 5 matches in a row without a win (2 draws, 3 losses). Also, in the quarterfinals of the European Football Association (UEFA) Champions League (UCL), they lost against Real Madrid with a combined score of 0-4 in the first and second games and were eliminated.토토사이트
In this situation, we are planning a major reorganization of the squad. Koulibaly’s chances of staying are getting smaller.
Koulibaly may return to Serie A from next season. Italy’s ‘Calcho Mercato’ and others reported that Juventus are interested in Koulibaly. Juventus is a traditionally prestigious club in Italy and this season is currently in 3rd place (59 points). It is also famous for the club where Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nasr) worked in the past. Juventus have a strong will to sign Koulibaly. If it is difficult to fully recruit, we are considering leasing.
