Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly is eager to join Premier League giants Manchester United according to recent reports coming out of the media in the United Kingdom.

According to the publication from the stables of London Evening Standard, Kalidou Koulibaly wants to end his five-year stay in Italy by signing for the Red Devils during this summer’s transfer window.

Manchester United have made the signing of a new centre back top priority ahead of the transfer window in the summer and Senegalese international player Koulibaly is at the top of their shortlist of possible defensive signings.

Senior club officials want an experienced partner for the impressive Victor Lindelof and they believe they can get the aforementioned Koulibaly for £85m.

Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho had issues with the club’s hierarchy last summer for the failure to sign a new centre back.

The Red Devils failed in late bids to sign Jerome Boateng from Bayern Munich as well as Diego Godin from Atletico Madrid at the start of this season.

They were also rebuffed in their quest to prise Harry Maguire and Toby Alderweireld from Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur respectively.

Manchester United have been poor defensively this term especially when Mourinho was in charge of the team.

They have improved defensively since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was named the interim manager.

Manager Maurizio Sarri has been announced as the head coach of Italian Serie A outfit Juventus after calling it quit at West London outfit Chelsea some days back.

The Blues boss only spent a season at Stamford Bridge and that was enough for him as he delivered the Europa League title for the club.

His stay at the club was full of controversies, including a poor relationship with the fans and inconsistent results.

However, there have been reports that a number of players will leave Chelsea to join Maurizio Sarri at Juventus and that seems to be happening already with reports that Jorginho could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge.

Jorginho has got a relationship with the Italian boss as they both worked together at Napoli before switching to West London. More to that is the fact that the Italian was favoured by the manager in his team selection.

However, it is yet to be seen if Chelsea will let go of Jorginho, as they will not be able to sign a replacement this summer transfer, this is expected to affect the team in their bid to win titles in the coming season.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been attracting strong interest from both Spanish giants Real Madrid and Italian champions Juventus after his recent admission that he needs a new challenge after three years at the Theatre of Dreams.

Real Madrid are likely to sign Paul Pogba this summer ahead of Italian champions Juventus as they try to continue their spending spree this summer.

The Los Merengues have already spent over €300m on top talents this summer with the likes of Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic, Ferland Mendy, Rodrygo Goes and Eder Militao moving to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu this summer and Paul Pogba could join them.

The €160m-rated midfielder has two years left on his Manchester United contract with the option of an extra year but the Red Devils are not willing to sell him this summer.

Manchester United re-signed Paul Pogba from Italian giants Juventus for a then world-record transfer fee in 2016.

He had earlier spent four hugely successful years at Juventus before returning to the Theatre of Dreams after Pogba led the Old Lady to four straight titles during his time at the Juventus Stadium. Let’s take a look at the Real Madrid starting XI with Paul Pogba.

Real Madrid XI (4-3-3): Thibaut Courtois; Dani Carvajal, Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane, Marcelo; Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Paul Pogba; Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic, Karim Benzema

Frank Lampard

Championship outfit Derby County players have now been informed by their manager Frank Lampard of his decision to quit the club to take over at Stamford Bridge as the new Chelsea manager.

Although he made it clear that an agreement is yet to be reached, there are hopes that talks would be concluded and he could leave for the right offers and terms.

The former midfielder has emerged as favourite to take over the job from Italian boss Maurizio Sarri who left the club to join Italian Serie A champions Juventus after just a year in charge.

A number of names have been linked with the job but the Blues legend seems to have been favoured after his feat with the Championship outfit.

However, assistant Gianfranco Zola could follow Sarri to the Old Lady as he would not seek to work under Frank Lampard at the club.

Meanwhile, Frank Lampard will face his first challenge on the job by not having the opportunity to sign a new player owing to the fact that the West London outfit have been handed a transfer ban that will stop them from registering any new player for the next two transfer windows.

North London outfit Arsenal are reported to be facing major competition for the signature of Kieran Tierney in this summer transfer window.

It is claimed that Italian Serie A giants Napoli are also desperate to land the player who is opened to a move this term.

It has been reported by SunSport that the Serie A giants have already made inquiries about the availability of the £25million-rated Celtic left-back despite being aware of the interest from Arsenal.

The report adds that Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti is a big fan of the highly rated left-full back and will seek to work with him in the coming season.

Kieran Tierney has won eight major honors, including two Trebles, and has made over 150 club appearances, which adds to his quality in the Champions League and Europa League while also earning 12 Scotland caps.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery will not have to depend on Nacho Monreal as a result of his age and the injuries he has been battling with which makes the need for a new player a necessary option.

Kieran Tierney is a young player who has many years to impress while he has already gained a level of experience which would be helpful to the North London outfit if he is eventually captured.
