Mourinho Identifies £88m African Defender As Man United’s Top Transfer Target

Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho has identified Napoli and Senegalese defender, Kalidou Koulibaly, as his side’s top transfer target in January.Recall that Mourinho had angled for Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire, Yerry Mina, Jerome Boateng and Diego Godin as centre-back targets last summer, but the club refused to pursue any of them.

According to Metro UK, the 55-year-old Portuguese has now proposed a move for Koulibaly.

The report claimed that the former Chelsea manager is keen on bolstering his back-line with the £88 million-rated center-back who recently extended his stay with Napoli till 2022.

The report also claimed that United will have to battle Barcelona, who are also interested in signing Koulibaly.

Mourinho’s side have conceded 21 goals in 12 Premier League games so far this season.

United will take on Crystal Palace on November 24 at Old Trafford after the international break.
