Real Madrid set to offer luxurious deal for Manchester United target

Kalidou Koulibaly news

According to certain reports from Italy, Real Madrid are all set to land a mega bid for Napoli's center back Kalidou Koulibaly this summer.

Los Blancos are looking keen to invest more in the backline that has disintegrated this season and feel the Senegalese will clear out many of the woes the club have suffered through by arriving in the pre-season negotiations window. It is believed that the Spanish side are preparing a lump sum of £130m to lure away the defender who's been stellar for the side based in San Paolo, season after season. 

Napoli is due to place a sizeable price tag for their star defender to fend off interest from another candidate in the race, Manchester United. The side managed by Ole Gunner Solksjaer is under pressure to re-bolster the squad that is lacking stability at the back but may find the price too high for them to pursue.

Hence, Real Madrid have the beneficiary to secure Koulibaly's signature provided that they are going for a major dressing room clear up prior to the new season. Dispute over Kroos contacts followed by unsatisfying performances from Luka Modric & Gareth Bale has placed them in a possible transfer list. As a case, a significant amount will be handy for the three consecutive times European champions.
