Manchester United apparently facing tough competition from Paris Saint-Germain for dominant Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly’s signature.
According to Foot Mercato the Parisians have joined the Red Devils in the race for the Senegal international.
PSG reportedly view Koulibaly as Thiago Silva’s natural successor at the heart of the club’s defence, while Manchester City and Real Madrid are also reportedly keen on the burly 28-year-old.
Koulibaly has established himself as one of the best defenders in the world and has in the past four years been named in the Serie A Team of the Season.
The centre-back made the switch to Napoli from KRC Genk in 2014 and is contracted to the club until 2023. He has scored 10 goals in 232 appearances for Napoli, playing 20 times so far this season. During his time in Italy he’s been a regular fixture in the Serie A team of the season and put up top performances in the Champions League.
Napoli have endured a tough season and currently occupy 11th place on the log standings while Koulibaly has missed the club’s last four league games due to injury.
