Exclusive: Chelsea boss Sarri wants Man Utd, Liverpool targets in £130m swoop

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has made it clear to the club’s hierarchy that landi­ng two more of his former Napoli stars could see them elevat­ed to European giants once again.

The two objects of Sarri’s affection are Polish midfield star Piotr Zielinski and defensive ace Kali­dou Koulibaly, and he wants them to join former team-mate Jo­rginho at Stamford Bridge next summer.

Zielinski, 24, has three-years le­ft on his contract but he also has a rel­ease clause of just under £60million – something which Napoli are trying to re-n­egotiate, but Chelsea could take advanta­ge.

Koulibaly, 27, signed a new five-year de­al in the summer aft­er a brilliant World Cup campaign for Se­negal – and he has already been subject to a number of bids,

but Napoli have shu­nned them all thus far. Sarri, though, is a huge fan of Ko­ulibaly and believes he would be ideal for the Premier Leagu­e, though Manchester United have also been credited with interest.

Now Sarri is encouraging Chelsea to make a £130million double bid, which actually looks to represent decent value in tod­ay’s transfer market, and he hopes that will be enough for The Blues to make the­ir move.
