Dwight Yorke urges Manchester United to sing Kalidou Koulibaly.
Dwight Yorke believes that Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly would be the perfect partner for Harry Maguire.
Kalidou Koulibaly is considered as one of the world’s best defenders and is valued at £90million by Italian club Napoli.
The 29-year old has been heavily linked with Manchester United since the past two years. Premier League giants such as Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea are also keen to sign the Senegal international.
Yorke believes a defender of his calibre would be a perfect match for Harry Maguire who arrived from Leicester City last summer for £80million.
Yorke told Stadium Astro: ‘Without a doubt I think he’s one that everyone is after and if Manchester United are going to make some big signings like they always do, I would definitely sign him, if we can afford him then why not?
‘I think he is the perfect fit to come into centre-half alongside Maguire, that would be awesome to have him there and suddenly we look a proper team then, with the likes of Pogba and Bruno and one of the holding midfielders and the front three forwards as I mentioned. ‘We become a team who suddenly everybody will be fearing.’
‘But certainly with everyone after him, what he’s done in the Italian league so far he is a name everyone is after. ‘If he’s one that everyone is after then why should United not go after him? ‘And that sends a clear message that we are hard to beat and certainly with the quality we are possessing at the minute, for me that’s kind of a no-brainer if I were United at this stage.
‘If I was Ole or in Ole’s position, I would be persuading to get him because I know how important it is to have another centre-half of his quality alongside Maguire.’
