Red Devils target Kalidou Koulibaly’s asking price is set to fall because of the impact of the coronavirus on the transfer market.

Senegal international, who is also rumoured to be a target for Man City is in high demand around Europe this summer with the Naples willing to reduce his asking price as things stand, according to the Independent.

The report explains that Kalidou’s price tag is to drop to around £70m from a previously much higher £100m, which might have been a tad expensive even for a club of Red Devils size.

Koulibaly has shone in Serie A, showing himself to be one of Europe’s most solid central defenders, and he’s surely now earned himself a move to a bigger club.

Man United could do with adding Koulibaly to the list of centre-backs in their squad, with the 29-year-old centre-back offering vast experience and assured quality. Man United signed Bruno Fernandes from Sporting during the winter transfer window.

Although the Norwegian manager splashed out on Harry Maguire last summer, the England international could do with a more reliable partner next to him after some unconvincing form from the likes of Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly.
