Napoli determined to get top price for Man Utd target Koulibaly

Napoli are determined to get top price for Kalidou Koulibaly this summer.

La Repubblica says Napoli want £80m for Koulibaly with Manchester United believed to be leading the chase for the defender.

Koulibaly has regularly been linked with a move to the Premier League with Liverpool also believed to be keen on the centre-back.

United registered their interest last summer with a €100m bid believed to have come from the Red Devils before Harry Maguire was signed.

And it's suggested Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are in 'pole position' to sign the defender this summer.

Talks between the clubs did not end last summer, but were instead 'postponed for twelve months' with Napoli wanting €90m (£80m).
