Done? Man United To Pay £108m To Sign Defender


Premier League giants Manchester United will have to pay a staggering transfer fee of £108m to sign one of the best centre backs in the Italian Serie A.

Italian media outlet Gazzetta dello Sport say that a transfer for Kalidou Koulibaly might cost interested clubs including Manchester United a lot of money.

Kalidou Koulibaly plays his club football for Italian Serie A giants Napoli.

The Senegalese international defender has grown to become an integral part of the Napoli team since joining from Belgian side Genk in 2014.

It was revealed that Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is ready to collect as much money as possible before he will sanction the sale of the defender.

Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona and Red Devils’ Premier League rivals Chelsea are also interested in a move for the player.

The 27-year-old recently endured racism taunts from Inter Milan fans and reports stated that he will push for an exit from the club in the aftermath of the incident which happened in an Italian Serie A game at the San Siro on Boxing Day.

It was also revealed that his potential transfer fee could suffer a huge decrease as a result of the incident but that seems to be wide off the mark with the latest publication from La Gazzetta dello Sport.
