Serie A Powerhouse defender linked with summer move to Man Utd

By | February 26, 2020

Manchester United will go all-out to beat Chelsea in their pursuit of Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly in the summer transfer window.

Manchester United and Chelsea both are desperate to sign a world-class defender this summer, and Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly will be their No.1 transfer target in the summer, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is convinced the 28-year-old is the perfect partner for Harry Maguire in his backline, while Lampard wants to pair him with Rudiger who has scored a brace against Leicester City last night.

United have spent the last 12 months keeping tabs on Koulibaly and Ed Woodward still regards him as the top defensive priority.

The 20-times English champions will step up their efforts to secure the services of the Senegal international as soon as the summer transfer window opens.

Koulibaly is open to the idea to play in the Premier League and both Chelsea and Man Utd have shot to sign him.

The Red Devils could face competition from, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain for his services.

Napoli are believed to demanding around £90million for Porzingis.

Solskjaer is believed to be happy to pay that figure because of the impact for the defender can have on the current United squad at his disposal.

United are also ready to make Koulibaly the highest-paid player at the club. The Red Devils have signed Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo in January, while Chelsea failed to make any new additions to the club.
