Kalidou Koulibaly Invented A Hilarious New Method To Stop Kylian Mbappe

Kalidou Koulibaly invented a completely unique way of dealing with Kylian Mbappe back in 2018.

In a Champions League group stage clash with Paris Saint-Germain, the Senegalese centre-back produced a commanding display that highlighted why so many big teams have been linked with his signature.

But undoubtedly his best moment in the 2-2 draw was when he went to extreme lengths to ensure his left-back was much tighter on the PSG No.7.

With the scores at 1-1 in the 75th minute, the World Cup winner had the ball on the right and Koulibaly felt as though Marco Rui was too far away from Mbappe.

Koulibaly literally shoved his teammate so that he was closer to the PSG No.7, who was then forced to concede possession.

The former Genk man has been linked with a move away from Napoli for what feels like forever but now finally looks to be leaving for a new challenge.

Widespread reports claim that Chelsea are closing in on the centre-back and have already agreed personal terms with Koulibaly.

According to Fabrizio Romano, a first bid of €35 million was turned down but Chelsea's second and final offer of €38 million plus add-ons hs forced Napoli's hand.


Koulibaly joined Napoli in 2014 in a £6.5 million deal and has gone to make 317 appearances as well as captain the Serie A side.

He has previously been strongly linked with Manchester City and Manchester United and Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis went record to say the Senegal captain would not leave for less than £90 million.

Chelsea look like they will get their man for less than half of that sum and the deal won't affect their attempt to bring Nathan Ake back to Stamford Bridge for a fee of £45 million.
