27-year-old Napoli key man could make switch to Man Utd

January 12, 2019

Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly has seemingly suggested that he may be open to a future move to Old Trafford.

Senegalese international defender has been heavily linked with a switch to Old Trafford, although Serie A giants president Aurelio De Laurentiis has previously insisted that the defender will not depart from the Satio Sao Paolo in January.

However, the Red Devils fans have taken notice of a social media exchange between Koulibaly and Man Utd playmaker Paul Pogba, who had praised the Senegalese for how he had handled receiving racist abuse in a game with Serie A giants Inter Milan.

Koulibaly responded to the France international by saying: “Thank you my bro for the supporting! Congratulation for the goals and the victory! See you soon bro,” while also adding emojis of praying hands.

The response has only increased speculation about the player’s future, and De Laurentiis has already acknowledged that the Red Devils hold an interest in the 27-year-old player.

Meanwhile, Manchester United keen on to sign Koilbaly’s teammate Elseid Hysaj who has been rumoured with an exit from Stadio Sao Paolo after the end of the current campaign.
