Koulibaly likely to stay in Serie A despite Chelsea interest

Published

on

Senegalese international Kalidou Koulibaly says he would be happy if speculation linking him with a move to the Premier League one day comes true, but expects to stay at Napoli for next season.

The defender was heavily linked with a move to Chelsea ahead of the 2016-17 campaign, with Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis claiming Antonio Conte’s men were ready to pay €58million to secure a deal.

But Koulibaly is under contract with Napoli until 2021 having signed a new deal last September and he is not expecting to be on the move.

The 25-year-old, though, appears to be a fan of England’s top flight and played in the country during Senegal’s 1-1 draw with Nigeria in Barnet on Thursday.

« It would make me happy to come and play here, but now I have to go to Napoli, » centre-back Koulibaly said to talkSPORT.

« It is my first time in London and it was amazing.

« In the future you never know. Now I concentrate on my club and we will see next season what I have to do.

« I think I will stay in Napoli but you never know. I can’t talk about it now. We will see. »

Koulibaly joined Napoli from Belgian club Genk in 2014 and is likely to play for Senegal on Monday as they face Ivory Coast in an international friendly.

Robinho :  Brazil striker given nine-year term in Italy for rape

Former AC Milan and Real Madrid striker Robinho has been sentenced to nine years in prison in Italy after he was convicted of gang rape, according to local media reports Thursday.

Robinho was found guilty in absentia by an Italian court for sexually assaulting a 22-year-old Albanian woman

The alleged incident occurred in January 2013, when the Brazilian was playing for Milan in Serie A.

He was found guilty in absentia by an Italian court for raping a 22-year-old Albanian woman.

Five of the player’s friends were accused of the same crime. One of the accused was also given a nine-year prison sentence while the trial of the four others has been suspended because they are on the run.

According to Milan daily Corriere della Sera, Robinho and his acquaintances made the young woman drink « to the point of making her unconscious and unable to resist ».

They were then said to have engaged in « sexual intercourse multiple times in a row » with her.

The court in Milan also ordered those found guilty to pay the victim 60,000 euros ($71,000).

Robinho, who is currently playing for Atletico Mineiro in Brazil, posted messages on his Instagram and Facebook profiles protesting his innocence and his lawyer said an appeal against the verdict had been launched.

« We have already said that he has defended himself against these accusations and stated that he played no role in this incident, » the statement said.

« All legal measures have already been taken. »

The sentence is suspended while appeals take place.

It is not the first time the player has faced allegations of sexual misconduct.

He was questioned by British police in 2009 after a woman accused him of assault at a nightclub in Leeds, northern England while he was playing for Manchester City. He was eventually released without charge.

The 33-year-old won 100 international caps for Brazil and played in the 2006 and 2010 World Cups.

He was one of the first big-money signings at Manchester City, joining for 32.5 million pounds on the day the English Premier League club was taken over by the Abu Dhabi United Group.

By

Inter-Milan have revived their interest in Ghana international Godfred Donsah.

The Italian giants are ready to trigger the release clause of the midfielder in the January transfer window.

Bologna refused to release the 21-year-old in the summer transfer window but could be tempted to allow the player make a switch following the persistent interest from the Nerazzurri.

AS Roma and Juventus are also in pursuit for the former Ghana U20 ace but Inter looks the most favorite to land a deal with the talent.

Joined Bologna on a four-year deal from fellow Serie A Club Cagliari in 2015, the player has since grown to become an important figure in the Bologna team.

Inter-Milan will be expected not to pay less than £4.5m before luring the midfielder from Bologna.

Talks between the two sides (Inter-Milan and Bologna) is said to be in progress hence a deal could be struck in the coming weeks.
