Koulibaly, who is facing an uncertain future with Napoli is currently in Senegal for the off-season.

The former Genk ace has widely been linked with a summer exit, with Man City and Barcelona among the top clubs thought to be interested in his services.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Man United are inching closer to signing long-term transfer target, Jadon Sancho, in the coming days after submitting a fresh bid thought to be in the region of £75m.

United have been tracking Sancho for months now, having failed to land him last summer.

Red Devils' interest in the Englishman dates back to early 2019, but it was in 2020 in which they intensified the plot to sign.

Borussia Dortmund are understood to have been looking at a fee of £108m from anyone interested to sign Sancho but have since lowered that valuation to reflect the winger's contract status and the financial crisis occasioned by the global outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Whereas United are yet to agree on a fee for Sancho, reports suggest their latest bid of around £75m is close to what Dortmund are demanding for the player.
