Man United made move to break their transfer record

Koulibaly and Skriniar

Manchester United broke their transfer record to sign Paul Pogba for a fee of £89million back in 2016 (Sky Sports News).

If reports in the media are anything to go by then recently, the Red Devils attempted to break their transfer record again but their bid was rejected.

According to La Gazzetta Dello Sport’s reporter Nicolo Schira, Man United a mammoth move of 110 million euros (£96m) to sign Napoli superstar Kalidou Koulibaly, however, the Italian club do not want to sell their prized asset and opted to turn the offer down.

Transfer: Man United willing to secure £105million signing

In the past few summer transfer windows, the Old Trafford club have spent a lot of cash but still, we have made no progress.

So, the money should be spent wisely this time around under Solskjaer but things are going to be complicated because we will not be playing Champions League football next season.

Defense was our weakest link in the last campaign and we need a marquee signing of a center half to shore things up at the back. Koulibaly is a world class defender and he would actually be perfect for the team and it is extremely disappointing that even an offer as big as £96m is not enough to lure him.

What should United do next? Raising the offer might not help if Napoli are determined to keep their superstar at the club. What about an alternative?

We have been linked with Leicester City’s Harry Maguire (ES), who is a top talent, but in my view, the England international is not world class and nowhere near as good as Koulibaly.

In your view, who should Solskjaer sign to strengthen his central defense?
