Manchester United to wait till summer for Kalidou Koulibaly deal

Manchester United's efforts of enhancing their backline during the ongoing January winter transfer window have been boosted.

Manchester United are not going to be signing Senegalese global and Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly in the winter transfer window if reports in the media are anything to go by.

According to reports in Italy, the French-born defender notified the club he would like to open contract talks with United.

The report further noted that Manolas has a £30.75 million release clause in his current deal, but it does not become active until the summer.

The Red Devils have continuously linked with Napoli and Senegal centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly, who has been voted into CAF's African Team of the Year.

The club would ideally like to sign the 27-year-old this month and had hoped that Napoli's exit at the group stage of the Champions League would increase their chances of landing the defender.

Initially, the side had cast their eyes on FC Porto star, Eder Militao, but Marca contend United are close to signing Manolas instead.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are now preparing for their crunch Premier League showdown against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.

United are yet to appoint a permanent successor for Mourinho but have consulted caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the club's transfer targets.

Nevertheless, United have been buoyed by Koulibaly's interest in a move to Old Trafford and will wait until the end of the season to sign him.
