Announcement Imminent, Man Utd Seal Another Major January Signing

Manchester United have made a big coup in transfer market though fans might need to wait for the official announcement according to Italian journalist Fabio Santini.

Fabio Santini told II Processor that Manchester United have agreed a deal to sign Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly for around £64m.

He further stated that the deal has been agreed for the player to join Manchester United this summer.

Some Manchester United fans have been crying out for a quality partner for Harry Maguire in defence and it seems like those fans will get their wish with the imminent signing of the 28-year-old Senegalese defender who has been at Napoli for six years.

Kalidou Koulibaly has been a target for Premier League clubs including Manchester United over the past transfer windows and Napoli have decided to cash in on him due to their financial problems.

The Napoli defender has been vocal about his desire to stay with the Italians but that has changed especially after Carlo Ancelotti was sacked last month.

Koulibaly had previously said that his family is happy in Naples and that he won’t be moving to a new club.

Carlo Ancelotti was succeeded by Gennaro Gattuso who has lost three of his first four league games.
