Kalidou Koulibaly: Napoli defender reportedly completes £60m move to Manchester United

Kalidou Koulibaly has reportedly completed a move to Premier League giants Manchester United in a deal worth just over £60m.

Reports in Italy claim that Napoli center-back who has been linked with Tottenham and Arsenal has opted to join the Red Devils.

The Senegalese defender is expected to make the switch to Old Trafford next summer and would potentially solve United's defensive problems.

Italian journalist Fabio Santini broke the news on a TV show Il Processo: "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."

Koulibaly will partner Harry Maguire who was signed from Leicester City for £80m, becoming the most expensive defender.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have conceded 25 Premier League goals this season and with the news of Koubilay, United fans will be happy their request have been granted.
