Manchester United are reportedly preparing a huge bid for Kalidou Koulibaly to lure him away from Napoli this summer.
The Senegalese star is a wanted man all across Europe after his fine performances from his side with many believing he’s amongst the best in his position.
United have been searching for the perfect centre-back for quite some time and it appears the club’s chiefs are finally willing to spend big to sign one.
Koulibaly is said to be the priority signing and it will likely take an incredible fee to secure his signature.
The likes of Marcos Rojo or Eric Bailly are expected to be moved on to make way for such a major signing.
According to Teamtalk, il Corriere dello Sport report that the Red Devils bid €105m for Kalidou last month though Napoli are believed to want €150m. If you think Koulibaly will make the big move to Unite this summer, check out the latest odds on betting sites.
Victor Lindelof’s fine form this season has seen the club’s desperate need for two centre-backs drop to just one.
There was hope Bailly could develop in a similar manner but he has struggled with injuries and form all season.
This has left Manchester United with the need to secure a top centre-back to partner Lindelof so the club can go back to challenging for titles.
