Coach Jose Mourinho successfully persuaded Manchester United manager seriously with the deal of Napoli midfielder Kalidou Koulibaly.
Mourinho complained throughout the season about not being added to the center-back. He defaults to the lack of quality personnel that caused the Reds to concede 26 goals in just 16 games this season in the Premier League. Just after the 4-1 victory against Fulham last weekend, M.U had a positive goal difference, which was humiliating for a great team.
It is for this reason that M.U is forced to enter more actively during the next winter transfer window. Their number 1 goal is Koulibaly. The 27-year-old midfielder is highly regarded for his personal skills as well as his defensive qualities. The amount of money that MU plans to put on the negotiating table is 90 million pounds. The representatives of the two teams had a face-to-face meeting to discuss the deal.
The 27-year-old star is one of the pillars of Italy’s defense, he is also considered one of the best midfielders in Serie A at the moment. Kalidou Koulibaly possesses superior form, which makes him always have an advantage in disputed situations. The ability of the player born in 1991 is also appreciated.
The biggest difficulty with M.U is the boss with Napel’s Aurelio De Laurentiis. De Laurentiis, who was erratic, proclaimed: “I built a wall to keep Koulibaly here with me.”
Napoli is currently ranked No. 2 in Serie A and leads the group in the Champions League. They have no financial pressure to sell the key player. Coach Carlo Ancelotti also has full authority to evaluate Koulibaly and of course M.U will not easily get the people he needs.
Therefore, the Red Devils have already prepared a contingency plan if they fail with Koulibaly. Diogo Dalot’s success made M.U want to exploit more potential players and Porto’s Eder Militao name was in the sights. His contract release fee is £ 44.7 million.
