European giant threaten to sue Chelsea after latest transfer rumours

chelseachelseaChelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are reacting to shock reports emerging to day, which state a European giant could open legal proceedings against the Blues.

La Republicca quote Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis as being furious with Chelsea and defender Kalidou Koulibaly, who last week stated he wants a move to the Premier League.

‘I had thought Koulibaly was a good man. The moment I realise you and your agent haven’t read the contracts properly before signing them, I cannot tolerate that,’

‘Napoli were about to sign new commercial deals to use Koulibaly’s image, but his statements cancelled those opportunities. His jersey cannot be sold now. He created damages worth millions of Euros and I have specialists studying the issue now. I would hate for Koulibaly to work for life in order to make up for this.”

‘I’m disappointed he didn’t just call me and ask if Napoli intended to sell Koulibaly or not. I don’t bother other clubs, approaching their players who are under contract.’

‘If we discovered that Chelsea were behind this, then we could sue them for damages too. Koulibaly is 24 years old, he is not a kid. We stood by him when he was jeered in his first season. Out of respect for the club and Sarri, he should not have made those statements. Apologising to the fans is not enough.’

‘He will continue working for us for the three years on his contract and maybe many more until he’s paid off the damages to Napoli.’

Our landlord is surprised by the firm stance of the European giants, as he feels they’ve made assurances they cannot keep in regards to Koulibaly’s future.
