TOP DEFENDER tipped to join Real Madrid this summer

Real Madrid are preparing a €75 million move for Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly after Manchester City have ended their interest in the Senegalese defender, reports El Desmarque.

Koulibaly is reportedly unsettled at his current club and is demanding a swift exit. Earlier in the week, Manchester United were credited with an interest in the 28-year-old defender as well.

However, Los Blancos are now convinced they have won the race to sign the former Genk player and are willing to offer €55 million + James Rodriguez in return to sweeten the deal. Napoli look set to miss out on Champions League football next season and will most likely cash-in on their star players this summer.
