Reports: Manchester United want Serie A defender after being unimpressed by Harry Maguire


Manchester
United
signed
Harry
Maguire
from
Leicester
City
for £80m
but
it
is
fair
to
say
that
the
central
defender
has
flattered
to
deceive
this
season.
As
a
result,
the
club
might
be
looking
for
reinforcements.

The
Express
is
reporting
that
United
have
not
given
up
their
pursuit
of
Kalidou
Koulibaly,
who
was
linked
with
the
Red
Devils
for
a
long
time
before
they
decided
to
go
for
Maguire
instead.

However,
the
shaky
form
of
the
centre
back
has
forced
manager
Ole
Gunnar
Solskjaer
to
look
for
a
backup,
and
that
might
just
come
in
the
form
of
the
Napoli
star,
who
could
come
for
cheaper
than
Maguire
did.

From
United
to
United:
Harry
Maguire’s
journey
to
the
Theatre
of
Dreams

“It’s
my
information
that
Koulibaly
has
informed
Napoli
president
Aurelio
De
Laurentiis
of
his
desire
to
leave
the
club
in
January,”
transfer
expert
Ian
McGarry
told
Reach
plc’s
Transfer
Window
Podcast.

“This
has
been
an
ongoing
situation,
but
with
the
departure
of
Ancelotti
who
he
was
very
close
to,
has
brought
the
issue
to
a
head.

“Koulibaly
is
now
seeking
a
move
away
from
Serie
A.

“This
has
begun
an
option
process
led
by
Carlo
Ancelotti
at
Everton
who
sees
weaknesses
in
the
Everton
back
line.

“But
probably
just
as
interesting,
especially
given
their
current
form
at
the
back,
is
Manchester
United
have
made
contact
with
Napoli
regarding
Koulibaly
and
the
price
Napoli
are
asking.

“This
tells
us
two
things.
One;
Manchester
United
have
decided
finally
that
Lindelof
and
Maguire
are
not
as
dependable
as
Ole
Gunnar
Solskjaer
would
prefer.

“I
think
we
saw
that
in
the
Watford
game
at
the
weekend,
when
Maguire
was
beaten
once
again
in
an
aerial
challenge
which
led
to
the
first
goal.

“Interesting,
also,
that
Koulibaly’s
valuation
is
in
excess
of
€65million
[£55m].

“It
would
be
a
substantial
investment
for
either
of
the
north
west
clubs
to
make
that
bid
and
satisfy
De
Laurentiis,
who
we
know
does
not
sell
cheap.”
