Barcelona are in pretty advanced talks with Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, according to a new report from Diario AS. The Barca central defense is seemingly in constant need of reinforcements and signing Koulibaly would bolster the backline in significant ways.
Given that Xavi is keen on securing his contract it only makes sense that Barca would target him. The difficulty is that his deal doesn’t expire for another year which means Barca would need to fork over some money. Which, as we know, is difficult for the club at the moment.
AS reckon Napoli have slapped a €40 million price tag on the defender and won’t budge. Napoli are also said to be completely uninterested in any Barca players being included in the deal.
