The Senegal international is one of the best centre-defender in world football. Given Manchester United weakness in the area, it is no surprise that Ole Gunnar Soleskjar's side continue to be credited with him.
Both Bailly and Lindelof have failed to convince Coach Solskjaer so far. While England International Harry Maguire isn't without his faults, the Englishman appears to be the only centre-defender who is at this point in time an automatic alternative.
Koulibaly has been credited with a transfer away from Italian side, Napoli for some time now. However, the major stumbling block more often than not was the £69m valuation
Napoli are now willing to accept a cheaper price as we head into the summer market. Napoli have also been hit by the Coronavirus outbreak and are keen to reducing their expenses.
The Gli Azzuri are in the 5th place in Italian Serie A and are in real danger of missing out on a UEFA Champions League place. Doing so would give them an added incentive to slash Kalidou Koulibaly’s huge £9.5m per year in salary
To put it into context, the Senegalese wages account for 10% of Napoli’s entire wage bill
