Real Madrid are considering a move for Kalidou Koulibaly, while Manchester United are targeting Jadon Sancho in a cut-price deal.
Amid uncertainty over Sergio Ramos’ future at Madrid, the LaLiga giants continue to be linked with centre-backs.
They seemingly have plenty of options – and Napoli star Koulibaly is among them.
