Manchester United have reportedly accelerated their pursuit of Kalidou Koulibaly as they attempt to secure his signature in the summer transfer window.
The Red Devils are allegedly open to signing a new centre-back during the upcoming transfer window, and Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly has been increasingly linked with a move to Old Trafford.
Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain are also thought to be weighing up moves for the 28-year-old defender, who racked up 15 league appearances this season.
However, according to Le 10 Sport, Manchester United have prepared to up their efforts to secure a deal for the Senegal international as they look to bolster their squad ahead of the 2020-21 season.
Napoli are expecting to attract a fee that would ‘surpass the €100million mark’, which would make Koulibaly the most expensive centre-back in history.
The Serie A giants will be in a strong position when it comes to negotiations, meanwhile, as Koulibaly has a deal with Partenopei until June 2023.
Manchester United broke the transfer record for a central defender back when they signed Harry Maguire from Leicester City last summer.
