Kalidou Koulibaly has become the latest Chelsea player to move to Saudi Arabia after the defender completed a transfer to Al-Hilal for an undisclosed fee.
The centre-back, 32, joins Ruben Neves at the Saudi Pro League side following the Wolves midfielder’s £47m switch.
Meanwhile Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has also agreed to sign for Saudi champions Al-Ittihad, while team-mate Edouard Mendy is close to joining Al-Ahli. Meanwhile Koulibaly signed for Chelsea from Napoli last July on a four-year deal.
STILL IN SPORTS; Carlos Alcaraz won his first title on grass and regained the world number one ranking with an impressive victory over Alex de Minaur in the Queen’s final.
Alcaraz’s 6-4 6-4 triumph means he moves above Novak Djokovic in the rankings and will be the top men’s seed at Wimbledon, which starts on 3 July. The Spaniard, 20, who was playing only his third grass-court tournament, has won five titles this season. He will now set his sights on a Queen’s-Wimbledon double.
