Manchester United see Kalidou Koulibaly bid rejected

According to reports, Manchester United's bid for Napoli center-back Kalidou Koulibaly was rejected by the Italian club.

The Senegalese defender's future has been a source of speculation in recent months, with Manchester United and Manchester City both failing to lure him away from Naples last summer. However, Napoli are said to be open to offers for Koulibaly this time, and the Red Devils are expected to renew their interest despite making progress in their pursuit of Raphael Varane.

According to Gazzetta Dello Sport, United approached Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis with a €30 million (£25.9 million) bid, but it was swiftly rejected. According to the report, a deal for Koulibaly, whose contract in Naples expires in less than two years, would require an offer closer to €50 million (£43.2 million).

Last season, Koulibaly appeared on 37 occasions for Napoli across all competitions, and he was previously linked with a move to Everton while Carlo Ancelotti was in charge.
