Man Utd prepared to try again for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly

Manchester United are prepared to try again for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

The Daily Mail says United have identified an alternative to Harry Maguire as Leicester dig their heels in over a transfer this summer.

United have been keen to snap up Maguire to bolster their defence but Leicester are staying firm in demanding £90m.

However, United are ready to shelve their plans and go for Koulibaly instead.

He was playing in the African Cup of Nations until last week, where Senegal lost to Algeria in the final - and United could revisit that interest and make a move for the Napoli ace.
