Napoli Reject Manchester United’s €90m Bid For Barcelona Target Kalidou Koulibaly

Napoli Reject Manchester United’s €90m Bid For Barcelona Target Kalidou Koulibaly

Napoli have rejected a €90m bid from Manchester United for Kalidou Koulibaly, according to Football Italia.

Both the Italian and English press have suggested that United manager José Mourinho is a fan of the 27-year-old Senegalese defender and is keen to fix the issues that he has faced defensively this season.

La Repubblica has reported that a €90m offer was submitted to the Italian club, though it was swiftly turned down.

Koulibaly has a contract that keeps him at the Stadio San Paolo until June 2023, meaning that Napoli have a strong hand in any kind of negotiations for their highly rated defender.

I Partenopei would only allow the centre-back to leave for an offer that is above €100m.

As well as attracting interest from Real Madrid, Manchester City and Bayern Munich, Koulibaly's former agent, Bruno Satin, has said that Barcelona have kept a close interest on the player.

"How much is Kalidou worth? He's very strong and quick. He's learned so much from all the coaches he's worked with, from those in Belgium to [Rafael] Benítez and [Maurizio] Sarri.

"It must be remembered that since they signed him from Genk for [£6.5m], they've turned down important offers."

Koulibaly is considered to be one of the world's best and showed how efficient his defending is when he took on Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappé in the Champions League.

Should United continue to pursue Koulibaly?
