Manchester United will reportedly have to fend off competition from bitter rivals Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain to secure the signing of Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly.
The centre-back has been widely linked with a move to Old Trafford in the past few months, with recent reports suggesting that United have been given the green light for a £74m move for the Senegal international.
Napoli are supposedly resigned to losing Koulibaly when the transfer window reopens, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side could face stiff competition for the 28-year-old's signature.
According to La Repubblica, Man City and PSG are firmly in the race to sign Koulibaly, who has made 15 Serie A appearances for Napoli during an injury-hit 2019-20 campaign.
The defender has chalked up 10 goals in 233 appearances for the Italian outfit across all competitions since arriving from Genk in 2014.
