Manchester United have been given a clear path to sign Kalidou Koulibaly after PSG reportedly gave up on their pursuit of the centre back.
The Senegalese defender has been in huge demand recently and he is expected to leave the Stadio San Paolo this summer after impressing consistently through the years at Napoli.
Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City, Liverpool and Co have all been linked with Koulibaly but both United and PSG were always front-runners for his signature.
But according to French newspaper Le Parisien, PSG have now pulled out of the race for Koulibaly this summer as they believe Napoli’s asking price of £63million is too excessive.
This therefore has given Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a free run at signing Koulibaly in the upcoming market.
Koulibaly has become one of the most sought after defenders in world football in recent years after shining in Serie A.
Since joining in 2014 from Belgian outfit Genk, he has been a virtual ever-present in the Naples outfit’s backline.
His arrival saw Napoli finish fifth in Serie A during the 2014-15 season but since then they’ve finished runners-up three times (2015-16, 2017-18 and 2018-19) and third once (2016-17).
Koulibaly, who has played 233 times overall for Napoli, has it all – he allies his physical dominance and speed with his composure on the ball.
