Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly one step away from beating Manchester United to Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly, reports in England say
United have been trying to snap up Koulibaly since last summer, but their efforts to strengthen their backline with the Senegal international have now suffered a blow.
Indeed, as per The Sun, Paris Saint-Germain stepped up their interest in Napoli star defender during the past few days and are now on the brink of securing his services.
According to the same source, PSG director Leonardo has come forward with a massive four-year contract worth £10.2m per season, which is almost a double of what Koulibaly gets from his current deal with the Partenopei.
The Ligue 1 giants have therefore overtaken Manchester United in the race for the former Genk centre-back, but they now have to meet Napoli’s staggering £100m asking price.
Aurelio De Laurentiis has slapped an exorbitant price tag on Koulibaly to fend off suitors but has had a change of heart recently.
He is now ready to offload his star defender in the January transfer window after the player expressed his unhappiness with life at the San Paolo.
Koulibaly’s frustration culminated with Carlo Ancelotti’s dismissal back last month, and rumors suggest he has been searching for a way out of Napoli ever since.
