Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis will accept nothing less than £63million for the highly-rated centre-back.

And in reality would like to cash in more for the 29-year-old Senegal captain.

The report states the player’s agent Fali Ramadani jetted into Manchester.

Ramadani spent two days finding out what City’s stance on the potential transfer was.

A deal could be held up as there is bad blood between the sides after City’s botched Jorginho transfer in 2018.

Pep Guardiola has already added Nathan Ake from relegated Bournemouth for £41m.

But is looking for further reinforcements after Aymeric Laporte – who tested positive for Covid-19 today – struggled with injury last term.

And they were said to have had a £53m offer rejected for Koulibaly.


The Citizens will face competition from Champions League runners-up PSG as De Laurentiis knows the French champs will sit down to discuss a deal.

Thomas Tuchel’s side lost veteran Brazilian Thiago Silva to Chelsea for free and need to restock their defensive ranks.

And the Red Devils have not given up hope on bringing Koulibaly to Old Trafford to partner Harry Maguire.

The £85m man played more minutes than any other player last season alongside Victor Lindelof in the heart of defence.

However, boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not convinced the Swede is up to the role in the long run and is also monitoring RB Leipzig star Dayot Upamecano.

Harry Maguire played more minutes than any other footballer in the world in 2019-20
