Man Utd target two Serie A defenders for summer market

Manchester United plan to shop in Italy this summer for a new defender.

The Independent says United have identified Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly and Milan Skriniar, of Inter Milan, as their top summer transfer targets.

The club's top bosses are keen to see a new central defender signed at the end of the season with the Serie A duo both under consideration.

It is suggested that United were keen on moves for either defender in the January window before eventually determining the pair to be too costly.

However, it is now reported that United would be willing to invest such money in the summer if any deal gets the long-term backing of their new director of football and permanent manager.
