REPORT: United To Meet With Koulibaly’s Agent This Week With Defender Keen On Move

Manchester United have scheduled talks with Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly’s agent, according to Soccerlink. The French website believes the Red Devils have arranged a meeting with Fali Ramadani to speak about the possibility of the Senegalese international moving to England.

United previously had discussions with Koulibaly’s representative a few weeks ago, but with the transfer deadline looming, the Manchester club are stepping up their interest.

Despite United not being in the Champions League, the 28-year-old is said to be keen on a move to Old Trafford, but it remains to be seen if a bid will be made for the Serie A star.

Koulibaly is rated at £137m by his club Napoli, and while that fee could be negotiated down, it would still be a lot more than they would have to pay for Harry Maguire.

Leicester are said to be demanding between £80m and £90m for the England international but United have yet to meet the Foxes’ asking price.
