Bayern Munich, Man Utd buoyed as Napoli slash asking price for Koulibaly

Napoli have slashed their asking price for Kalidou Koulibaly.

Clubs across Europe have coveted the Senegalese centre-back for years.

But Napoli have constantly searched for over €100m to sell their star defender, until now.

According to Il Mattino, the Neapolitan outfit has reduced that figure down to €45m (£39m).

The reason for this decision is Napoli are being forced to decrease their salary budget.

Koulibaly is a top earner at the club, pulling in €7m-per-year.

This is potentially great news for Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Manchester United, who all could try and sign Koulibaly this summer.
