Napoli Reject Manchester United Bid For Kalidou Koulibaly

Mourinho has always been reported to have been after a central defender, with links to Toby Alderweireld and Jerome Boateng popping up during the summer.

Corriere dello Sport reported that Mourinho is making up for lost time.

'I can not answer to your question, ' Mourinho said.

"Maybe your question is the first one about the market and maybe the next press conference I have two more questions, and maybe the next press conference I have three more".

Napoli centre-back Kaildou Koulibaly, nicknamed "K2" partly due to his imposingly mountainous presence in the Napoli defence, is one of the most highly-regarded defenders in the game today and it is a sure statement of intent that United have had the audacity to plough ahead with a move for the centre-back. And I don't speak about players from other clubs'.

However, with the apparent quick rejection from Napoli, it appears United will have to fork over even more cash for the Senegalese player.

The 27-year-old, who is up for the 2018 African Footballer of the Year award, has made 174 appearances for Napoli, and is under contract until the summer of 2023.

Meanwhile, Manchester United fell 16 points behind leaders Manchester City in the Premier League on Saturday after their 2-2 draw at Southampton.

The Saints raced to an early 2-0 lead at St Mary's thanks to a powerful strike from Stuart Armstrong and a delicate free-kick from Cedric Soares. I don't know what they stand for.

"They give me a lot of love and a lot of confidence and I want to give something back to them and I hope it will be the Scudetto [Serie A Championship title] this season".

"When you feel that a team is afraid of your team, I am really grateful and I like this sensation".

United host Arsenal at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
