Man United to beat Chelsea to the signing of €120m star CB

United have won four games on the trot since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took the helm on an interim basis after Mourinho was laid off last month following strings of misunderstandings with the club and with his squad.

The Red Devils are firing on all cylinders and Frenchman Paul Pogba has been heaping much of the accolades coming from fans and the media.

United are keen to snatch opportunities in the January transfer window while they have them.

Chelsea-linked Kalidou Koulibaly has been named one of United’s targets this winter as Solskjaer looks to beef up his squad in this better half of the campaign.

The Napoli man is on United’s radar and plans to sign him are being panned out. According to Italian La Gazzetta Dello Sport, the Devils are readying a bumper offer to lure the Senegalese star out of Napoli.

Koulibaly has been very eccentric for Carlo Ancelotti this term behind the midfielders. His defensive showoff have been spot on for Napoli and United want a taste of his services.

President Aurelio De Laurentiis has demanded they fork out 120 million euros if they want his switch to be sanctioned this January.

Koulibaly is a solid central defender and is just as reliable as Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk who has been the real spine in the Reds backline this season.
