Sun 21 March 2021 | 13:47

The Red Devils and the Reds may restart their pursuit of Kalidou Koulibaly after Napoli changed their price demand for the Senegal international.

Kalidou Koulibaly

has been attracting interest from the

Premier League

in recent years, with

Manchester United

and

Liverpool

keen on putting pen to paper with the centre-back.

The 29-year-old has devoted himself to

Napoli

until now, but speculations regarding his departure in the summer are raising.

Based on reports from

Gazzetta dello Sport

, Napoli are open to offers for the Senegal international. Koulibaly’s contract will expire in 2023, and the

Serie A

side is deciding to cash in on him. With the financial crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, Napoli are going to have his salary off the books, with his initial £69m price tag putting off many interested clubs. However, they have decided to lower the price.

The decision may encourage Liverpool and Manchester United to reignite their interest in the defender. The two Premier League clubs would have to compete for Koulibaly’s signature as

Paris Saint-Germain

,

Barcelona

,

Arsenal

, and

Manchester City

are also eyeing him.

Napoli are sitting fifth on the Serie A table, two points adrift of the top four.
