Kalidou Koulibaly

The latest report has claimed that the English Premier League outfit, Man United will reignite their interest in Italian Serie A outfit, Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, and submit a bid for him this summer transfer window.

The Red Devils have been following Kalidou Koulibalysince Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho was in charge at the Old Trafford but are yet to have a breakthrough in the chase.

Kalidou Kouliably’s fee has been the issue over time and it is set to be settled with Napoli president stating that the defender will be allowed to leave the club for the right amount.

This development, therefore, means that Red Devils will pay the sum of £80 million to meet with the valuation of Napoli for him.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to boost his team with new legs in this summer transfer window and one of his focuses is the defensive department which he seeks to reinforce.

The Red Devils will have to finalize the deal for their primary target, Jadon Sancho from German Bundesliga outfit, Borussia Dortmund before facing other deals.

Man United have been delayed on the negotiation table for the England international winger as they are unwilling to pay £100 million.
