Senegal and Napoli star Koulibaly in Barcelona? “Do the deal” – fans


Reports that Barcelona have renewed their interest in Senegal and Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly have sparked intense debate online.

The 30-year-old centre-back is rumored to be top of Barca manager Xavi Hernandez’s summer transfer wishlist.

Koulibaly’s speed, ability to anticipate and aerial power are said to be the qualities that made Barcelona prefer him even more. Moreover, he is seen as a natural replacement for 35-year-old Gerard Pique who has become injury-prone lately.

Some fans have expressed their greatest desire to see the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations winning captain join the Spanish giants.

While one explained his concern over Koulibaly’s age and wondered why the Catalan club would be interested in a player who might not be a long-term investment for the club.

Should the French-born player join the La Liga side, some are anticipating a better partnership with Uruguayan centre-back, Ronald Araujo.

One of them explained why Barcelona will need a defender of Koulibaly’s caliber and why the African star could solve the club’s problems at the back.

Another admitted he was once disappointed with Barcelona but indicated that Koulibaly’s arrival would make him happy.
