Man Utd favourites for huge move for Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly
Man Utd are the bookies’ favourites to secure a mega-money move for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly in January.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been tipped to be given big funding next month and is desperate to support his delicate guarded line.
Koulibaly has been a rock at the heart of Napoli’s defence, but the Serie A goliaths are probably not going to move him efficiently.
Indeed, Napoli dismissed an incredible £95million bid just hours before Jose Mourinho was sacked.
However, presently, the odds on Koulibaly moving to Old Trafford have been slashed to just 2/1.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes stated: « Solskjaer may well be trusted with a hefty transfer budget next month.
« The odds suggest Koulibaly is the first player who’ll move to Manchester. »
In spite of dismissing United’s monstrous offer not long ago, Napoli did suggest they may be open to selling.
President Aurelio De Laurentiis claimed: “We won’t sell Koulibaly in January. In any case, the time will come where we can’t refuse other indecent offers.
« We generally contribute, however with criteria. In Italy there are two or three clubs with balanced books, and I’m the only one who doesn’t have any bank debt.”
