Manchester United to leave Liverpool fuming with £88 million Koulibaly transfer move?

Reports have claimed Manchester United are lining up a move for Liverpool target Kalidou 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 Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid and even Barcelona all joining Arsenal in the chase for the defenders signature.

Liverpool are still waiting to find out if they will be handed that Premier League title that they fully deserve, but that has not stopped Jurgen Klopp lining up a possible of signings that will improve the side.

Liverpool fc may have one of the best defences in Europe right now, and have the best centre-back on the planet in the shape of Virgil Van Dijk, but Klopp knows that he needs to add another top-class defender to that back-line.

However, the TALKSPORT WEBSITE has claimed United are set to revive their interest in Napoli defender Koulibaly after finding out Liverpool want to sign him.

Koulibaly was heavily linked with a £100m move to Old Trafford before the club brought in Harry Maguire for £80m from Leicester last summer, but with the club seeking to improve that back-line, they will be looking to beat Liverpool to a possible transfer deal.

Look, Liverpool already have one of the very best defences in the game and adding a player next to Van Dijk at the back that is as good as Koulibaly, that would surely make the Reds unbeatable next season.

Maguire has also been impressing during his first season with Manchester United and if he managed to have a player like Koulibaly next to him at the back, United would also be a force in the Premier League next season.

If both sides are interested in trying to sign Koulibaly during the summer transfer window, it will be very interesting to see just whom he would choose if he has offers to make a move to either club.

He would be a world class signing for both side.
