Man Utd Transfer News: Red Devils have completed the signing of £64 Million Serie A defender according to reports from Italy.
Manchester United’s priority last summer was to improve their backline. They bought in Aaron Wan-Bissaka and record signing Harry Maguire to that end. However, despite the stark improvement in defence, the side are still struggling to keep clean sheets.
According to Italian journalist, Fabio Santini, United are looking to get more work done and have already agreed a deal with Napoli for star defender Kalidou Koulibaly in the region of £64 million. However, the transfer will take place in the summer.
Kalidou Koulibaly to Manchester United
Santini told TV show Il Processo on the station 7 Gold:
”Napoli will sell Kalidou Koulibaly to Manchester United for a figure of around 70-75m Euros. It seems all done”.
”Naturally, such a deal will be closed only in June and certainly not in January in the winter transfer window”
The Red Devils have been linked with several players before the January Transfer window even opened. However, the club are yet to make a purchase. United have also been linked with a move to Sporting Lisbon star Bruno Fernandes. However, Solskjaer has remained tight lipped on their pursuit of the player.
When pressed about the possible arrival of the Portuguese, Solskjaer said:
“I’ve got no transfer updates, so no,”
“If we get something that we can tell you about we will but I’ve got no news now.
“For me, the most important thing is we get results sorted, get performances on the pitch, that has got to be my focus.
“But I know we’ve got the resources; we’ve got the backing if we need to go into the transfer market. We are still up there, so still in a good place.”
