Manchester United’s search for a centre-back that can, as Jose Mourinho continues to insist, improve our squad continues.
However, it seems that one player Manchester United may have looked towards acquiring might be unattainable.
The news vehicle, the Daily Mail, picking up on something in the Italian media is reporting that the Serie A side, Napoli, have rejected a huge bid from Manchester United that would have seen Kalidou Koulibaly become a Manchester United player.
According to our referenced source, the Serie A club turned down a bid, said to be of the magnitude of £91 million for the Senegalese international.
If true, that is a colossal fee for a centre-back but a fee that would signal Manchester United’s intentions to close the gap between themselves and the likes of Manchester City.
However, it could also have a negative effect if teams latch on to the fact that Manchester United appear to have an abundance of funds to sole their perennial problem.
