Napoli’s defender Kalidou Koulibaly still remains one of the main transfer targets for Manchester United next season.

The Senegalese defender has made his name as one of Serie A most reputable defender and ranks as one of the best worldwide.

Since completing his move to Napoli from Belgian Pro League side Genk for around €10m, the 27-year-old centre-back has made massive progress in his game.

Koulibaly’s ability to read the game, make vital tackles and his physique are some of the attributes that has helped him rise to fame in the modern game.
