Italian sends Solskjaer message about signing big, powerful defender for Manchester United this summer
Napoli manager Luciano Spalletti is reportedly keen to keep long-term Manchester United target Kalidou Koulibaly at the club.
Koulibaly is easily regarded as one of the most powerful and dominant players in the Italian Leagues, and has developed into one of the most impressive defenders in world football, which has alerted all the biggest clubs.
There has been alot of speculation that United are still very much interested in trying to sign Koulibaly, should he come onto the market, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants the perfect partner for Harry Maguire.
There has been alot of talk that Raphael Varane is the player that is most likely to come to Old Trafford, but with the rumours suggesting that nothing is close, as we said, United will be interested in Koulibaly if a deal for Varane falls through.
However, they will have a very hard time trying to get the player as Italian Journalist Fabrizio Romano has come out and claimed that Spalletti is doing all he can to make sure that his powerful defender is kept this summer.
Fabrizio Romano tweeted:: “I’m ready to chain myself to keep Koulibaly here at Napoli”. 🔵 #Napoli
‘Napoli sources confirm there’s still no official bid’
Koulibaly is world class there is no doubt about that, so it is very easy to see just why the Red Devils are very keen to get a deal done if they miss out on trying to sign Varane
He has all the attributes to adapt to the Premier League, so it will be interesting to see if he stays put this summer or moves on, as there is alot of interest in his services guys
