Man United send scouts to watch 27-year-old, plotting world-record bid: report

At this point in time, we’re still none-the-wiser in regards to who the next permanent Manchester United manager will be. A lot can change from now until the summer.

However, it seems as though the Red Devils are forward planning in regards to potential transfer targets. In an exclusive by The Sun, it is being claimed that United are planning on a world record £90million move for Napoli centre-back, Kalidou Koulibaly.

Apparently, the club had scouts watching the 27-year-old during Napoli’s 0-0 draw with Fiorentina last Saturday, as interest in him is seemingly beginning to grow amongst the United hierarchy.

I think it’s pretty common knowledge that centre-half is the Red Devils’ weak spot at the moment. Victor Lindelof aside, the club have struggled for any real consistency in that area of the field.

United need that real leader who can command the rest of the defence, as far too often, heads have dropped and not one player has stood up and dragged his teammates through.

Koulibaly would do exactly that. He’s up there amongst the best centre-halves in the world and there is no doubt that he’d be a massive upgrade on what we already have.
