Manchester City prepare Koulibaly bid

Manchester City are in the market for a new centre-back, that is a common report constantly repeated by a number of outlets, with several names circling around as potential candidates to partner Aymeric Laporte in the heart of defence at the Etihad.

On Monday evening, The Guardian broke the news that they are close to agreeing a £35 million deal to sign Nathan Ake from Bournemouth.

However, now Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri claims that City are actually preparing a €65m bid for Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly, citing Sky Italy as the source.

The future of the Senegal international has been the subject of much speculation for years, with a number of clubs reportedly harbouring interest in his services.

As for the man himself, he recently poured cold water over stories of a potential move by declaring himself very happy in Naples.

 

The 29-year-old has established himself as one of the best defenders in the game with stellar performances both in the Serie A and the Champions League in the last couple of seasons.
