While having a hard time sealing the deal with Real Madrid on Raphael Varane, Manchester United management, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, have just submitted Napoli an opening bid, adding up to 30 million euros, aimed at signing 30-year old Senegalese international centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly.

Whilst tracked by most European A-listers around for a long time, Koulibaly, playing for Italian club since 2014/15, ended up staying put all there years long, and might now start his eighth campaign fending for Partenopei indeed. Still on a deal with Napoli until June 2023, former Genk and Metz player is so far off the market, though some will to venture something new, onto Premier League high-ranking shores on top of that, might get the tables turned.
