“I wish i have spent my 8 years in Chelsea than wasting it at Napoli” Chelsea Player Says

Kalidou Koulibaly left Napoli in 2014 and transferred to Chelsea during the summer transfer window for more than £30 million.

During that period, there had been numerous rumors about the defender moving to the Premier League, with leaks allegedly coming from the Naples club regarding Manchester United’s rejection of a €100 million bid.

Those sums sounded a bit exorbitant, and the Serie A team lost out on the possibility to earn truly large sums of money from the player. Despite this, the Chelsea transfer money they received has been viewed as somewhat of a success in the Italian media, in large part due to his replacement Kim Min-jae.

Despite only joining in the summer, the South Korean defender is now regarded as one of the greatest in Serie A, and thanks to a €50 million release clause that will take effect in 2019, he might not have to wait as long to go.

When asked about his own exit, Koulibaly had a positive response to Carre, as reported by Corriere dello Sport, and explained why he chose to join his new team.

The 30-year-old said, “I knew that after eight years, my time at Napoli was done. “When one of the top clubs in the world calls and expresses a great desire for you to be a part of their project, there isn’t much you can do. I didn’t hesitate and gave it my all to join Chelsea. My children were born there, and Napoli helped me develop into the player and man I am today. I will always be grateful to them for that. But a change was necessary.

“My family and I fit in nicely at Chelsea, and I feel great there. In addition to playing with players who have won numerous trophies, I arrived at the appropriate time. It is up to me to demonstrate on the field that they can rely on me. Right now, I’m content and hope to keep it up.
