Manchester United are prepared to wait until the summer to sign Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly after the defender intimated he'd be keen on a move to Old Trafford.

Over the weekend, it was reported that United had identified Koulibaly as their leading defensive target, despite previously being strongly linked with Leicester City's Harry Maguire and Tottenham Hotspur's Toby Alderweireld.

The report cites the Metro as claiming that Koulibaly has now informed Napoli he wants to move to Old Trafford this month, however, the Italians are determined not to sell in January so the proposed move may be delayed until the summer.

The Senegalese central defender emerged on Man United's radar over the summer following a superb 2017/18 campaign with the Serie A side.

Manchester United's efforts of enhancing their backline during the ongoing January winter transfer window have been boosted.

ESPN is reporting that the Red Devils are ready to wait until the end of the season to land the 27-year-old centre-half because Napoli are unlikely to let the player leave this month.

Caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been told by executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward he will get a say on any January additions but the Norwegian has made it clear he is happy to work with the players already at his disposal.

They are scheduled to open in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenyang by 2020 and will feature interactive attractions, exhibitions, restaurants and a club shop.
