Kalidou Koulibaly has informed Napoli he wants to join Manchester United this month but a proposed £90m deal is likely to be delayed until the summer, according to reports via TeamTalk.

The Senegal centre-back is on United's list of options as they look to bolster their defence along with Inter's Milan Skriniar, AC Milan's Alessio Romagnoli and Leicester's Harry Maguire.

Key figures at United were reportedly willing to launch a January bid to sign Koulibaly, with Napoli's exit from the Champions League providing an incentive to pursue him now, but Napoli are in no mood to let such an important player leave midway through a season.

The Senegalese central defender emerged on Man United's radar over the summer following a superb 2017/18 campaign with the Serie A side.

According to the same story, Manchester United are still open to making reinforcements in the January transfer window, but they accept that it may be hard to bring in the players they want.

Despite their disappointing start to the season, United appears to have turned around their fortunes since the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who is managing the club on interim basis.

And ESPN FC suggests there are three alternatives to Koulibaly in the Red Devils' minds.

They are scheduled to open in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenyang by 2020 and will feature interactive attractions, exhibitions, restaurants and a club shop. "This new concept will allow them to get closer to the club they love".
