"Let's see what happens in the future" - £85million defender finally breaks silence amid rumours he is wanted by Chelsea


Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly says he will evaluate his future but is happy in Italy.

The 26-year-old was very close to joining Chelsea during last summer's transfer window.

And he is again one of the most wanted defenders after a phenomenal campaign with the Partenopei.

"I arrived at Napoli in the right moment of my career," the strong defender is quoted as saying by

"Napoli fans are amazing and people stop me in the middle of the street to ask me if we will win the next game. If somebody wants to know what enthusiasm means should come to Naples.

"I don't know how much I am worth, 120, 150, 60, I don't know but these things always make me smile.

"It means that hard work leads to results, Napoli take care of me and it's better to be loved rather than hated. I am ok, my family is happy and my parents are happy to see me there.

"Let's see what happens in the future. I am looking forward to play the World Cup, it's a dream come true."
