The winter transfer window concluded on Friday and before its closure, Manchester United managed to lure the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Nathan Bishop and Odion Ighalo.
If reports in the media are anything to go by then already, the Red Devils are thinking about the summer transfer window and Kalidou Koulibaly is their top target.
According to an exclusive story covered by Mirror Sport, Man Utd remain hell-bent on signing the Senegalese international but face competition from clubs like PSG, Chelsea and La Liga leaders Real Madrid.
The British outlet have claimed that the African star, who is valued at around £90million, is viewed as the perfect partner of the most expensive defender in the history, Harry Maguire. It is further mentioned that the the Old Trafford club are willing to make the 28-year-old their highest paid player to get his signing done.
If we do end up paying £90million, then Koulibaly will over take Maguire to become most expensive defender in the world.
On the other hand, as far as the wages are concerned, at the moment, David De Gea is our highest earner and he gets £350,000-week (The Sun). So, reports suggest that Man Utd are prepared to agree a deal worth over £350,000-week to finally sign the Napoli superstar.
The former Genk center half is a proven quality talent, who is without doubt one of the best defenders in the world. He is the only defender, who has managed to earn a place in the Serie A Team of the Year in the past four campaigns.
Unfortunately, the Naples based club are struggling this season. Currently, the French born star is out injured and in his absence, his club has lost three of the last five league games.
At Old Trafford, even after spending a lot of cash to improve the back-line, we have regularly conceded goals and only kept 5 clean sheets in 25 fixtures this term.
Kalidou Koulibaly has the quality and experience to improve any defense in the world but he is a Champions League level footballer and at the moment, we are a Europa League team, who might once again fail to finish in the top four.
