Multiple Italian sources claim Manchester United are the favourites to sign Napoli defender, Kalidou Koulibaly, for €90m, ahead of PSG, Liverpool and Newcastle United.
French papers had already suggested Paris Saint-Germain were pulling out, while Barcelona and Real Madrid are also looking at other targets.
Now La Repubblica and Il Mattino newspapers in Italy also point to Manchester United as the primary candidates should Koulibaly leave the Stadio San Paolo this summer.
The asking price has dropped due to the coronavirus pandemic and its effect on the wider transfer market, as President Aurelio De Laurentiis had rejected over €100m in the last couple of years.
These latest reports put the price-tag at €90m, which would still be a massive profit considering he turns 29 next month and cost only €7.75m to purchase from KRC Genk in 2014.
