Kalidou Koulibaly has cemented himself in recent years as one of the best centre-backs in Serie A, if not the world. The Senegalese defender has been a real force to be reckoned with in the Neapolitan back line and has deservedly attracted interest from some top clubs around the world; Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid all being named as potential suitors this summer.
In fact, the Corriere dello Sport are reporting that Manchester United made a mega-offer for the defender before the transfer window closed in England last week. The paper reports that the Red Devils presented Napoli with a bid of 90 million euros for the defender, which the Serie A side rejected.
Therefore, it looks likely that Koulibaly will stay at Napoli, a club he loves and that loves him equally as much. Koulibaly is at home in Naples and it would take a huge bid to tempt Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis into selling the player, especially given Koulibaly’s reluctance himself to leave the club.
