Manchester United hope a £130million transfer move for Napoli ace Kalidou Koulibaly will solve their defensive issues, according to reports.
The Senegalese centre-back, 27, has been a target for Europe’s biggest clubs, but the Red Devils appear to have shown the most interest.
It was reported earlier this month that United gaffer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was ready to give his defenders a second chance and hold off splashing out
£80m on a new centre-back.
The Norwegian, 46, reportedly prioritises signing a wide forward with Borussia Dortmund ace Jadon Sancho topping his wish-list.
United are understood to have reached out to the England starlet’s camp over a potential £70m swoop in the summer.
But CalcioMercato claim the Red Devils are still closely monitoring Koulibaly’s situation at Napoli.
The Senegalese defender has proved to be one of the best centre-backs in the world following his £8.5m move to Serie A from Genk in 2014.
Also Real Madrid and Barcelona have reportedly been keeping tabs on Koulibaly.
But United are thought to be the side most interested in his services, making the Napoli ace their top transfer priority.
