Koulibaly and Skriniar

Another day, another update about Kalidou Koulibaly who is heavily linked with a move to the Premier League.

Last week, La Gazzetta Dello Sport claimed that Man United have raised up to 70 million euros for the Senegalese international.

However, the latest reports indicate that Man Utd have not made any offer as yet and Napoli are still waiting for the bid from the Red Devils.

Corriere Dello Sport report today that Man City have already offered 70 million euros plus add-ons for the African star, still, that move is not going to be enough to secure his signature.

The Italian outlet claim that two years back, Aurelio De Laurentiis wanted 108 million euros, last year, he wanted 100 million euros and this time, the club president is prepared to sell his prized asset only if the asking price of 90 million euros is met (£81million).

CdS claim that the Naples based side are under no pressure to sell and are waiting for a counter offer from Manchester United. For now, City are ahead but things could change if the Old Trafford outfit come up with a serious bid.

In the Europa League semi final vs Sevilla, Manchester United dominated the contest but poor conversion and defense led to the club’s elimination from the tournament.

Solskjaer men had 27 shots but could only find the net once, that too from the penalty spot. On the other hand, failure to deal with crosses hurt the Red Devils big time.

Ole needs to adequately strengthen his defense by signing a leader. Maguire is the captain but he is really bad at commanding the back-line. Koulibaly, who has been consistently brilliant over the years, surely fits the bill.
