Real Madrid have tabled a huge £79million bid for Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly
Koulibaly has been central to Napoli finishing second behind Italian giants Juventus in Serie A.
The Senegalese international helped Carlo Ancelotti’s side keep 13 clean sheets this season, as well as making 31 blocks and winning 67 per cent of his tackles.
