Manchester United renews transfer epopee

Manchester United are once again ready to join the transfer race for the defender of the Neapolitan Napoli, Kalidou Koulibaly.

Manchester United this season lost a lot of points in matches with outsiders and middle peasants, but they often took points from the leaders. So the Red Devils became the only ones who took away points from Liverpool, defeated Chelsea in the opening round, and also defeated Manchester City and Tottenham.

Nevertheless, defeats from Watford and a draw with Everton with the previous loss of points with outsiders Aston Villa - do not give class to the Solskjaer’s team. This is despite the fact that in the summer the Mancunians signed the right-back Wan Bissaka and set a transfer record among the central defenders, luring Harry Maguire from Leicester to them.

But, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the head coach of the team, apparently believes, the defense problem has not gone away. Manchester United again want to sign Kalidou Koulibaly, who plays much worse this season than the previous one, like the whole of Napoli as a whole. Given the chaos in Naples, namely the growing insanity of club president Aurelio De Laurentiis, and the arrival of no less expressive Gennaro Gattuso on the coaching bridge, it is not surprising that some Partenopei players will leave in the winter.

The interest of the Red Devils in the Senegalese was stated by Man United Source, referring to The Telegraph. According to existing information, the management of Manchester United began a negotiation process with representatives of the defender. Napoli are not averse to letting Koulibaly go, as De Laurentiis intends to make a restructuring at the club. But unlike the record holder for the cost at the moment, Harry Maguire, the Italian functionary set a Senegalese price tag of 250 million pounds, proving that in England there are crazy amounts for centerbacks and if they put out 85 million, they can give back 250.

It is clearly time for Koulibaly to leave. This season Napoli can hardly climb into the Europa League, since the distance to the Champions League zone is increasing due to the stable game of Lazio and Roma. Against the backdrop of an uncertain future in Naples, the team will soon scatter, and Koulibaly risks remaining a high-quality defender, who became a hostage to a crazy manager from the Italian mafia capital.
