Chelsea new signing Kalidou Koulibaly shirt number leaked online as the former Napoli defender will replace star player left.
Raheem Sterling has been signed and he has joined the rest of the squad for the Pre-season tour in the United States. Napoli Defender Kalidou Koulibaly has been unveiled as new Chelsea Player.
According To Goal’s Correspondent For Chelsea Nizaar Kinsella, Kalidou Koulibaly have already undergone his medicals in London and he will fly to the United States to join the Blues.
The 31-year-old Defender is coming to Chelsea as part of Thomas Tuchel’s plan to rebuild his Defense. His transfer fee is around £33million and he’ll sign a 4-year contract with Chelsea.
We’ll take a look at the shirt numbers that Kalidou Koulibaly could get when he eventually becomes a Chelsea Player.
The shirt numbers 2 and 4 which are orthodox shirt numbers for Central Defenders are currently available for Kalidou Koulibaly at Chelsea.
He could literally handpick which ever one he wants and he’ll be able to get it. Being the first Defender to sign for Chelsea this summer affords him to get his choice of shirt number.
With Marcos Alonso being linked with an exit this summer, shirt number 3 might also be free up but at the moment, it’s not. Kalidou Koulibaly has been wearing shirt number 3 in the Senegalese National team since 2015.
In the last 8 seasons, Kalidou Koulibaly has donned the shirt number 26 at Napoli but, no Player has wore this number since John Terry left Chelsea in 2017 despite the fact that Chelsea hasn’t officially retire it.
