Forget Dias: Man Utd need to go for this Serie A star instead

Man United need a squad refresh to try and earn some points. Ruben Dias has been a recent man of interest, however, The Express has explained that a new man is on the watch list.

Ruben Dias is currently a wanted man by a lot of teams. Especially Man City. Harry Maguire was the last player that both Manchester teams went head to head for and he chose the Reds.

It now looks like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to look elsewhere so he has got options in January. The new man on the cards for Man United is apparently Kalidou Koulibaly.

The 28-year-old Frenchman is someone who I have previously suggested Man City should look at. He currently plays for Serie A’s Napoli. Here’s what he would have to offer the defence at Old Trafford…

Centre Half

He is a very effective centre half who isn’t shy of trying to score from time to time. Man United signed Harry Maguire for a record-breaking fee and it’s clear they need to find him a partner in crime.

Koulibaly would be perfect. It would also be a good career change for him. A nice move to the Premier League could help his experience while helping Man United be stronger at the back. So it would be a win-win.

Solid Player

In the past, pundits have praised him for his all-round ability. While being strong on the ball, he also works the opposition. His pass rate is always high and he is aggressive and quick.

Harry Maguire needs a partner at the back who can bring out the best in him. I believe Koulibaly could be that man. As well as bringing out the best in Maguire, he would inspire Man United in all competitions. He’s a very driven player with a lot of ambition.

Other Plans?

However, in an article with The Mirror, he has stated that at this stage in his career, he only has one goal. That is to help Napoli be successful in the league and Champions League.

If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to bring him to Old Trafford, he’s going to have a lot of persuading to do.
