Three-time European champions Manchester United have been told the transfer bid required to sign their top defensive target.

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly has been reported to be the top defensive target for the Red Devils having built his reputation as one of the best central defenders on the world football stage.

The publication from Guardian via the Daily Mirror claimed that Manchester United will have to pay a whopping £107m to sign the Senegalese international centre back.

Koulibaly was recently part of the Senegal squad which narrowly crashed out of the group stage at the last FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.

Senegal finished their Group H campaign at the tournament outside of the top two (Colombia and Japan).

Kalidou Koulibaly has been a consistent performer for Napoli since he joined the club from Belgian side Genk.

The 27-year-old has played for Napoli under three managers namely Rafael Benitez, Maurizio Sarri and Carlo Ancelotti (present coach).

He was strongly linked with Chelsea when Sarri was named the Blues manager last summer but nothing came out of it.

Manchester United became the favourites to sign him in the last few weeks of 2018 with reports claiming that they had two bids rejected for him.
