PREMIER LEAGUE target Kalidou Koulibaly could be available for a bargain £39million this summer, according to reports.

Manchester United, Liverpool and Man City have been linked with the no-nonsense centre-back along with Bayern Munich.

Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is thought to be favourite to sign the 29-year-old as he eyes a defensive partner for Harry Maguire.

United have been long-term admirers of Koulibaly and in 2018, when Jose Mourinho was in charge, saw a £95million bid rejected.

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis later revealed: "[Jose] Mourinho wanted him, we rejected £95m.

"But now it's impossible that he leaves Napoli.”

And he may be ruing that decision with the Italian side preparing to lose their key asset this summer.

The coronavirus pandemic has crippled the finances of European clubs and Napoli are no different.

According to Il Mattino, Gennaro Gattuso's side need to trim their wage bill and Koulibaly is one of the names up for sale for the right price.


Napoli's finances will be further plunged into the red if they fail to qualify for the Champions League.

They currently sit five points adrift of fourth spot leaving Gattuso facing a fight to keep his job.

Koulibaly has a contract with the Italian side until 2023 while he holds off signing an extension.
