Kalidou Koulibaly

Man United are reportedly making moves to hijack the bid for Senegal international defender Kalidou Koulibaly who is valued at £71 million by the Italian Serie A outfit Napoli.

This is coming when reports claim English Premier League giants Man City have already agreed on terms to sign up the player this transfer window with a confirmation being expected.

Kalidou Koulibaly has been on the radar of the Red Devils for the past season with former manager Jose Mourinho making a sincere effort to land him but failed to agree with the Naples team.

Now, the Red Devils are desperate for a defender and will not mind investing in Kalidou Koulibaly who is rated as one of the best defenders in Europe.

However, Man United will not be able to land Kalidou Koulibaly for a fee less than £71 million as a number of offers have been rejected for the same reason by Napoli.

The Italian Serie A outfit have made it clear that Kalidou Koulibaly is available for sale but they won’t be listening to any offers less than £71 million, and that is suspected to be the reason why he has not been confirmed by Man City despite the agreement of terms with the player.
