Napoli defender Kolidou Koulibably has agreed personal terms with Manchester City ahead his expected move this summer.
Senegalese International defender Koulibaly has been a target for top European clubs over the past few seasons following his assured performances for Napoli over the years. But reports today has stated that the giant defender has agreed personal terms with Manchester City over a move to the Etihad this summer.
The French born centre back is known for his aggressive type of defending, his composure on the ball and his ability to see a pass from long range. These qualities suits comfortably for the type of football that Pep Guardiola and his team play.
Defence has been one of the problems of the Etihad side this season, following the retirement of their former skipper Vincent Kompany last summer. City has conceded a lot of goals this season which has haunted their race to retain the Premier league title and eventually loosing it to Liverpool.
Guardiola has made signing of a top quality defender a top priority this summer and Koulibaly is his main target. The only thing remaining for the completion of the deal is City to agree a transfer fee with his club Napoli which won’t be a problem.
The 29 years old defender made a total of 178 appearances for Napoli since joining the club from Belgium’s side Genk in 2014. He has 42 caps for his county Senegal.
