Serie A side Napoli have reportedly slashed the asking price for Manchester United transfer target Kalidou Koulibaly.

Manchester United have been linked with the Senegalese international for years but Napoli’s £100 million asking price had hindered the club from making a move.

According to Italian media outlet Il Mattino, the defender’s asking price has been slashed to around €45 million (£39m/$54m) by Napoli.

The report also claims German giants Bayern Munich are leading the race to sign the defender, with Premier League rivals Liverpool also interested.
