Koulibaly completes move to Al-Hilal

Kalidou Koulibaly has completed a move from Chelsea to Saudi Arabian club Al-Hilal for an undisclosed fee.

The centre-back, 32, moves days after N’Golo Kante left Chelsea to join Saudi champions Al-Ittihad, while Blues keeper Edouard Mendy is close to joining Al-Ahli.

Koulibaly signed for Chelsea from Napoli last July on a four-year deal.

He arrived at Stamford Bridge with European and international experience, after helping Napoli win the Italian Cup in 2020 and Senegal claim the Africa Cup of Nations in 2022.

But he played just 32 games for the club in all competitions, scoring two goals in 23 Premier League appearances.
