Manchester United and Manchester City have requested a transfer for Napoli defender Calidou Coulibaly this summer.
It seems that Coulibaly can be offered cheaply this summer and this will surely interest top clubs, such as Man Utd and City are listed as suitors by the print edition of Gazzetta dello Sport, as translated by Sport Witness.
The Senegal international has long been one of the best defenders in Europe and it would be exciting to see him in the Premier League after years of speculation about the transfers that link him to English clubs.
United certainly need a new signing in defense this summer after another disappointing season in which they failed to establish themselves as real contenders for the title.
Coulibaly could make the world of the Red Devils good, as it would certainly be a significant improvement for both Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailey in this position.

City, meanwhile, don’t seem obviously in need of Coulibaly after the huge form of John Stones and Ruben Diaz this term, while they also have Nathan Ake as a solid reserve.
If Koulibaly was only available for £ 43 million, however, as the report states, it would be difficult for almost any top club to say no.
