Kalidou Koulibaly

Premier League club Manchester United are losing their grip on the transfer of Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly according to the latest reports emanating from the media in Italy.

French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) are rivals to rhe Red Devils as regards the transfer of Kalidou Koulibaly.

Earlier reports had claimed that Manchester United are looking good for the transfer of the Senegalese international centre back who’s expected to leave Napoli this summer after growing weary about his time with the Italian Serie A club.

According to the specific publication from renowned Italian media portal La Gazzetta dello Sport, PSG have opened talks with the agent of the player.

It was disclosed that PSG sporting director Leonardo has already made an offer for his agent worth around £10.2m in salary on a yearly basis.

Kalidou Koulibaly has been given a four-year deal and it remains to be seen whether PSG will agree a fee with Napoli for his services.

The Napoli defender could be the long-term replacement for the ageing Thiago Silva at PSG.

Koulibaly is seen by many football fans as one of the best centre backs in world football.

Real Madrid and Manchester are also interested in him.
