Napoli Center-Back Kalidou Koulibaly to Manchester United is a transfer rumour that has been going on since the times immemorial.
It’s been said that even Socrates during his last days before his eventual death would talk to his followers about how its inevitable that the Senegal superstar would sign for Manchester United in the coming window, only for that prediction to fail.
It’s a well known fact that Nostradamus’ only failed astrological prediction came in the form of Kalidou Koulibaly to Manchester United and now a few journalist at talkSPORT have taken the mantle from the great Socrates and Nostradamus to carry over the tradition.
According to talkSPORT Evening Standard journalist Simon Johnson:
“Koulibaly they’ve been after for a a long time, they need that strong centre-half.
“The Express quoted £75m but Napoli are notoriously tough to negotiate with and I think you’re looking at close to £100m.”
Goldstein replied, “The Koulibaly thing, I’ve heard only good things about the fact that him coming to United is very close.”
On a serious note, Manchester United are in a desperate need for a world class center-back alongside Victor Lindelof, if we are to challenge for the top 4.
IF, by some miracle, we do manage to complete the signing of Kalidou Koulibaly, it should be considered as one of the best transfers in the recent times as the Senegal would improve us considerably at the back.
Over to you Ed Woodward and co.
