Napoli are reportedly set to pull all necessary stunts to ensure Manchester United are unable to secure summer target Kalidou Koulibaly, even if it means letting Paris Saint Germain have 28-year-old midfield target Allan.
It’s no secret Manchester United are in the market for a center back, with the red devils having identified Napoli’s 27-year-old Kalidou Koulibaly as the best option, along with Inter’s Milan Skriniar and Leicester City’s Harry Maguire as possible alternatives.
However, Napoli are reluctant to letting the Senegalese leave the Serie A, and are more than willing to let Ligue 1 midfield target Allan leave for £64m at the end of the season, as opposed to a £94m transfer fee previously stated according to reports from Metro via Football Italia.
Napoli have as well slapped a massive £150 million transfer fee on the defender [Koulibaly] in hope to ward off interests from Premier League side Manchester United and Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, who are also interested in sealing a move for the center back.
Koulibaly’s last contract renewal dates back to the September of 2018, leaving the defender in a long-term contract with the Serie A side until 2023. Kalidou remains literally indispensable in the squad at the moment, having made 37 appearances for the club so far, of which he has an astonishing 93 percent starting rate in his 26 Serie A fixtures this season and a perfect 100 in the Champions League prior to being knocked out.
