Kalidou Koulibaly has revealed the Chelsea star who played a key role in his departure from Napoli to West London.
Todd Buehle has already agreed two big summer signings with the Blues. Chelsea signed Raheem Sterling from rivals Manchester City.
This was followed by West London’s agreement on a deal with Napoli for Serie A star Kalidou Koulibaly.
Koulibaly was signed for a fee said to be close to €40m, which is a lot considering he is already 31 years old.
However, Chelsea have been in dire need of some quality in the back line heading into the new season following the departures of Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger.
Koulibaly, who has dominated Serie A for many years, is sure to bring that to the Chelsea squad.
Now, in an interview with his new club, Koulibaly explained how his former Napoli teammate Jorginho played a key role in his move to Stamford Bridge:
“Georgie texted me and asked if I wanted to come to Chelsea!” Coulibaly told the club’s website when he was considering his way to Stamford Bridge.
“At the time, I wasn’t sure if they wanted me, but of course I said I would gladly attend. It was the same with Edou [Mendy]He asked me the question and I told him it was already done and I’ll see him soon! “Now that I am here, I am really happy to start this exciting journey. The squad looks great with a good mix of younger players and those with more experience.”
