Koulibaly spotted flying out of Heathrow Airport to join up with new Chelsea team-mates in US after passing medical | The Sun

KALIDOU KOULIBALY was spotted at Heathrow Airport as the defender flew out to join his new Chelsea team-mates in America.

The Napoli star arrived in London earlier this week to complete his medical ahead of his £34million move to Stamford Bridge.


Koulibaly is now set to become the Blues' second signing of the summer after Raheem Sterling, who arrived from Manchester City for £50m.

Centre-back Koulibaly was joined by his agent Fali Ramadani in the capital, where the star passed his health checks without any issues.

He then penned a five-year contract, with the option of a further year, that will see him earn £300,000-per-week.

Now Sky Sports’ cameras have captured the 31-year-old making his way through the terminals at Heathrow ahead of climbing on-board a jet to take him to the States.
