Release clause Manchester United can sign one of worlds best for just £127 million
Reports have claimed Manchester United will be able to sign Kalidou Koulibaly in the summer if they pay the massive £127 million release clause.
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, and would only sell if the £150 million valuation was met.
However, THE DAILY MIRROR has reported that the release clause of Koulibaly will be active from June, meaning that United would only pay around £127 million to secure a deal for the powerhouse.
And reports in Italy suggest Napoli will have to sell the highly sought after centre-back should they fail to secure Europe League football next season with Paris Saint-Germain also interested in acquiring his signature.
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.
