Manchester United and Manchester City joint-favourites to sign Kalidou Koulibaly

The Napoli defender could be on his way to the Premier League

Manchester United and Manchester City are joint-favourites to sign Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly with Coral.

The rivals are believed to be in the market for a new centre-back and they’re both priced at 5/2 to land the Senegal international.

City are close to signing Nathan Ake from Bournemouth but manager Pep Guardiola is rumoured to be after two new additions at the back.

“Koulibaly is one of the hottest properties on the market for clubs looking to sign a centre-back and we predict a Manchester tug of war over him,” said Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead.

Meanwhile, United and Arsenal are leading the race for Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish.

The playmaker is expected to leave his boyhood club despite helping them stay in the Premier League and both clubs are 5/2 to sign him.

Elsewhere, Real Madrid are the 6/1 favourites to sign Paul Pogba, while the La Liga champions are also joint-leaders with United to land Harry Kane at 6/1.
