European Chairman Rejects Manchester United’s £95m Bid For Star Man

European Chairman Rejects Manchester United’s £95m Bid For Star Man

Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis has confirmed that the Italian club has rejected a £95m from Manchester United for Kalidou Koulibaly.

José Mourinho, who was sacked by the Red Devils on Tuesday, was an admirer of the 27-year-old Senegalese defender.

United had initially tabled a €90m bid for the Barcelona target, which was swiftly rejected by the Serie A side. It was followed up with a £91m (€103m) bid, with the Blues once again turning down the offer.

According to Goal, De Laurentiis has turned down the latest offer from the Manchester club.

"[José] Mourinho wanted him, we rejected £95 million," he told the press at an event hosted by Corriere del Mezzogiorno.

"But now it's impossible that he leaves Napoli."

It was initially believed that I Partenopei were holding out for a much higher bid for the former Genk star, but it looks likes Napoli have no intention of letting their world-class centre-back leave the club.

Koulibaly is contracted to Napoli until June 2023.

De Laurentiis also spoke highly about Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti, praising him for his involvement with the club compared to former coach and current Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri.
