“See You Soon Bro!” Kalidou Koulibaly’s Message To Paul Pogba Leaves Manchester United Fans Dreaming

Is there a Kalidou Koulibaly-shaped hole at Manchester United?
Is there a Kalidou Koulibaly-shaped hole at Manchester United?

Three wins from three under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has left Manchester United fans beaming, and dreaming of a top four finish.

The 13-time Premier League champions are eight points off a Champions League qualification spot, and can gain ground on fifth-placed Arsenal with a triumph over Newcastle

The ambition for a world-class defender to arrive at the January however remains very real - United have also failed to keep a clean sheet so far under Solskjaer, with one man’s name firmly on the lips of the majority of Red Devils’ fans.

Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly would command a huge sum to bring him to Old Trafford - reports mill around the £90 million mark that would surpass Liverpool’s transfer fee for Virgil Van Dijk a year ago and make him the world’s most expensive defender - he is the defender that Manchester United need.

The move might not beyond the realms of possibility with his latest social media activity that has gotten United fans’ hearts all aflutter. In conversation with man-of-the-moment Paul Pogba, currently dominating United’s midfield, on Twitter the centre-back was praised for his conduct following racist abuse in recent weeks and seeing out 2018 with a Napoli victory which solidified their second-place position in Serie A.

“Well dones guys beautiful way to finish the year + honour handband for @kkoulibaly26 2019 say NO to racism.” Pogba commented, with which Koulibaly responded brilliantly;

“Thank you my bro for the supporting! Congratulation for the goals on the victory! See you soon bro”

Seen you soon bro. Does that mean the defender is on his way to The Theatre of Dreams? With the transfer window now open until the end of January, the rumour mill is surely going to be rampant.

Koulibaly is contracted at Napoli until 2023. The 27-year-old has 188 appearances for the partenopei and popped up with eight goals.
