It is further claimed that 27-year-old Koulibaly is encouraged by Mourinho’s interest.

However, the player is contracted to Napoli until 2023 and Mourinho reportedly failed recently with a £77m bid for him.

He agreed a new deal at the end of the summer window and speaking of the contract, De Laurentiis said: “I erected a wall to keep him here with me.”

United looked solid in a 4-1 thumping of Fulham yesterday but Mourinho has said for a long time that his defence needs strengthening.


He joked there were no water bottles in his post-match press conference because the club were saving money for a splurge in the January sales.

United have conceded 26 goals in 16 Premier League fixtures so far this season but Mourinho is uncertain if executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward will sanction spending so much in January.
