Manchester United could be offered the chance to sign Kalidou Koulibaly during this summer's transfer window.

The Senegalese has been fancied to head to the Premier League in recent years but Napoli have been reluctant to sanction his sale.

However, according to Il Mattino, the Naples outfit are likely to change their stance this summer and they could accept offers of more than £85m for the centre-back.

United have been keeping a close eye on the defender's situation over the past couple of seasons and reports claim that they could be tempted to make a move for his signature.

Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire have been the regular combination in central defence for United this term but the former's performances have come under scrutiny on a few occasions.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has placed the emphasis on recruiting young players in the transfer market but he is alleged to hold a keen interest in Koulibaly whom he regards as one of the world's best.
