Manchester City and Manchester United will have to pay €100m if they wish to sign Kalidou Koulibaly this summer.

That’s according to Tuttomercatoweb journalist Niccolò Ceccarini, who says both clubs remain ‘around the corner’ for the defender.

Koulibaly is expected to leave Italian side Napoli this summer, with chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis planning an overhaul of the squad.

Several big names are thought to be on the chopping block, and Koulibaly is among those who has been linked with a move away.

Both Manchester City and Manchester United have been named as possible destinations for him, with United recently presented as the most ‘viable’ option.

Pep Guardiola’s side, meanwhile, are said to have already been in contact with his agent and made him an offer ahead of the summer.

Ceccarini backs up the claims both are interested but admits Koulibaly is most likely to end up at Paris Saint Germain.

“On the front of the illustrious departures, the picture is becoming more and more clear,” he wrote in his column for Tuttomercatoweb.

“For Koulibaly, the most likely hypothesis to date remains Paris Saint Germain. Around the corner are also Manchester City and United.

“De Laurentiis would like at least 100 million, but the French club want to spend less. The contacts are moving forward.”
