Manchester United have sensationally agreed a deal to sign Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, MySportDab reports.
MySportDab understands Ed Woodward has got a move for the Senegal international over the line but he won’t sign the player until the summer.
United are looking to strengthen their team as Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s continues his rebuilding process.
The Red Devils are still negotiating a deal for Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon which would be their first piece of the January transfer window.
But Chief Executive Ed Woodward has been very busy and has already sealed the transfer of Koulibaly for the summer.
Speaking on Italian TV show Il Processo, Italian Journalist Fabio Santini said: “Napoli will sell Kalidou Koulibaly to Manchester United for a fee around €70-75m.
“It appears all done. Naturally, such a deal will only be completed in June and not in January only in the winter transfer window.”

He’ll be 29 and United want to spend that on another CB.
