Italian journalist Fabio Santini might have given Manchester United fans their best transfer news in 2020 after he disclosed that the club has an agreement in place to sign Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly.
The journalist spilled the information over a Kalidou Koulibaly transfer from Napoli to Manchester United while he was on the TV Show II Processor.
According to him, Manchester United will pay between €70-75m for the centre back but he won’t join them until this summer.
Napoli were initially reluctant to sell Kalidou Koulibaly but the Italians have financial difficulties this making it for Manchester United to secure the signing of the player widely regarded as one of the best central defenders in world football.

He has been at Napoli for the longer part of the last decade.
Manchester United will be spending big on a central defender for the second successive summer after the Harry Maguire deal from last summer.
The Red Devils made England international Harry Maguire the most expensive defender in history after they shelled out a big transfer fee to sign him.
Harry Maguire joined Manchester United from Leicester City in an £80m deal which was more than enough to surpass the previous record held by Liverpool player Virgil Van Dijk.
