Got him signed up! Manchester United fans told Koulibaly’s £64 million move to Old Trafford ‘ALL DONE’
Manchester United fans have been told that Kalidou Koulibaly has completed a deal to sign for the club.
Look despite all the transfer speculation and rumours over the summer window that Solskjaer was going to be backed in his chase to land some world class signings, The Red Devils once again wasted their money on signing players that are the future, and that are past their best.
And inability to spend the big money on leader-type-players has started to cost the side dearly in the early stages of the season, but there have been calls in the media for United to go out and spend some serious money on players that will come in and make an impact on the side, send a statement to the rest of the Premier League, and be a leader, someone like Koulibaly.
Koulibaly has been outstanding for Napoli over the past few seasons and his performances has attracted all sorts of interest from the games biggest clubs, with the likes of United, Manchester City, Real Madrid and even Barcelona all joining Chelsea and Arsenal in the chase for the defenders signature.
It has been reported on many occasions that Napoli do not want to sell one of their biggest players and would rather keep him at the club well before he leaves for a a big club, that is how much they reportedly are desperate to keep him at the club.
Reports in Italy claim the Red Devils have stolen a march in the race for the Senegal international, and the news was broken by Italian journalist Fabio Santini, who was speaking on TV show Il Processo, with quotes relayed by Sport Witness.
Koulibaly will not be leaving Napoli in the January transfer window, however, with the deal to instead go through this summer.
“Napoli will sell Kalidou Koulibaly to Manchester United for a figure of around 70-75million euros [£59-£64m],” said Santini. “It seems all done.
“Naturally, such a deal will be closed only in June and certainly not in January in the winter transfer window.”
Look United have the financial power to go out and buy the kind of leaders that will help Solskajer out in his job, so if United are to get back to winning the big titles, then they need to change how the club was run, or they will find themselves in this kind of situation on a yearly basis.
So if they have signed Koulibaly, it is a massive statement from the club.
