Real Madrid competing with Man Utd for Napoli defender Koulibaly

Real Madrid are competing with Manchester United for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

United have eyed the Napoli defender since the summer, with former manager Jose Mourinho viewing him as the man to fix his leaky defence, and they made a world-record bid for him.

But Il Mattino says they could face a serious rival for his signature.

Koulibaly has grown into one of the finest defenders on the continent over the last season and a half.

And that has led to Real eyeing him as a potential January addition as they look to recover from their shaky start to the season.

Napoli are believed to be willing to accept a bid of around £90million for the Senegalese star.
