Manchester United have been handed a huge transfer boost following the news that Italian Serie A giants Napoli are ready to lower the asking price for a defensive transfer target.

The Red Devils have been touted as a possible transfer destination for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

Manchester United are seeking defensive reinforcements to improve the squad ahead of the upcoming transfer window scheduled to start as from the 1st of next month.

The Daily Mail via Daily Express say that Napoli have lowered their asking price for the Senegalese international centre back following the Boxing Day incident that marred Italian football and the fight against racism.

It was revealed that Napoli are willing to sell the 27-year-old for £70m which represents a £20m decrease from the previous asking price of £90m.

Kalidou Koulibaly was racially abused by a section of the Inter Milan fans when his Napoli team travelled to the San Siro to take on the Nerazzurri in an Italian Serie A game played on Boxing Day.

The Senegalese defender was then sent off with eight minutes left for two yellow cards in quick succession after he sarcastically applauded the fans that were taunting him.

Inter Milan went to score a late goal to secure a 1-0 win over Napoli.
