United Up Bid To £84m For Senegalese Star But Latest Offer Looks Destined To Fail

Koulibaly

Manchester United are prepared to pay €95m (£84m) for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, according to the Corriere Dello Sport.

The Italian newspaper says that the Red Devils are desperate to land the Senegalese international but the Partenopei will not budge on their valuation of the player.

Koulibaly’s release clause is currently set at €150m (£133m) and Napoli will not listen to offers unless a club triggers his buyout fee.

Real Madrid are also said to be keen on the centre-back but is believed that the Spanish club have yet to even match United’s latest bid.

What this all means is that Koulibaly is almost certain to stay at the San Paolo stadium this summer unless Napoli have a change of heart about their valuation.

The 27-year-old joined the Serie A side for just £6.5m in July 2014, but he is now one of the most sought after defenders in the world.
