Kalidou Koulibaly

Started by the wes,

1,678 posts in this topic

Don't forget we had all summer. We should already bought him like 100 times until now. Napoli would have enough time for 10 defenders. Obviously, soft or incompetent or both people running the club. All the top clubs bought top players for the money we're offering for Koulibaly, and people keep saying other clubs are financialy stronger. Maybe, but they get players for same amount of money we offering for K2, Lukaku.... I'm thinking why in the world we're connected with Lukaku for + £70m when Diego and him won't play together? Just don't see Fabregas and Oscar benched for them. We won't pay £89m for Pogba but want 70m for Lukaku? Someone's boat sinking.

Okay, nobody can say that we are low-bidding now. We're offering some serious money and they still don't sell.

Napoli are just being bitches in this deal now. Added to the list of other bitches including Spurs, Fiorentina and Everton that we should never deal with.

As much as I like the idea of Koulibaly and although we badly need CB, never in the world is Koulibaly worth 60m. And don't talk about inflated market, that's true, but you can still pull off some great deals if you don't deal with assholes. Just buy Mustafi/Maksimovic/De Vrij. Or even combination of them would be great too. And never deal with Napoli again.

Thing is everybody can see how much desperate we are and how much money we can and will offer for CB so no player at this point will cost us normally. We'll buy K2 or way below him for "only" 10m-20m less than Kalidou's price (60m)..

Getting pretty pissed at the club tbh. Of course they cannot help it that Napoli are huge asses like Everton to deal with, but that they seem not to have a GOOD replacement lined up. 

It all started last year, with Mou being unable to get his targets. Of course, the club doesn't have the power (anymore) to get the players who they want but they are milking this Koulibaly saga for too long now. They already could've gotten Mustafi or even Stefan de Vrij (also a very good choice, as I know him from his Feyenoord period and also for being Dutch) or even Maksimovic. And I would get him just to fuck with Napoli.  

Point is, just like last year at the end of the transferwindow, we are with empty hands an no new defenders. Maybe panic purchases like Papy.  
Even IF De Laurentiis gets Maksimovic, who says he's going to sell K2???? 

Move on Chelsea...for goodness sake.

Don't know why De Laurentis didn't come out with the statement rejecting the offer and clearly say how Kalidou isn't for sale for any price. The end. What's annoying me everything is so quite and zero something from Koulibaly and the president from the beginning. Nothing concrete from the two main parties.

My vote is for de Vrij. definitely, assuming he has recovered well from the injury.

Maksimovic is also interesting, but I've not watched him play matches.

I wouldn't say that we ever did. The list of players we wanted but didn't get during the Roman era is very long.

You may be right about this but how do you know, how can you know? What does it mean to you when Antonio says, "We are waiting. We have to be patient but we have a plan*."?

*Quoted from memory so may not be word perfect but this is the gist of what he said..

Di Marzio still not reporting anything significant. I would hold out to see what he and his colleagues report first. "Calcio" "Gazetta" and all these other links seem purely guesswork and nothing sounds concrete at all. I would suspect the dealings are being kept under wraps as much as possible away from the Journalists as to not cause too much commotion. Kante and Michy signings were very similar as in regards to being wrapped up pretty swiftly, and also fairly quietly.

Many reports are stating that Arsenal and Wenger are not willing to pay the €30 million fee for Mustafi.

Hahahaha. They are in much need for a CB as we are yet they are not willing to pay for it. What a joke that Wenger has become.

We should go and hijack it. The Koulibaly saga isn't ending in a short time and it will probably end in him staying at Napoli. De Laurentiis doesn't want to sell him as we all know and the Serie A also starts very soon.

Mustafi AND Jonas Hector OR Ricardo Rodriguez for left back and I am very happy. Then, our defence is as good as done and prepared (when Happy returns that is).

If we sign Koulibaly, I hope for all you Koulibaly supporters he turns out to be worth it. I never know what to believe when the average fan raves about a player, only for them to go to a club and flop.

He had a great season for Napoli but no player is guaranteed to succeed anywhere. I think most people are just backing him from what they saw in Serie A. He was a monster and if he could replicate his form from last season then we're absolutely set once Zouma comes back.
