Real Madrid competing with Man Utd for Napoli defender Koulibaly

After firing Portuguese manager, Jose Mourinho, Manchester United has switched their plans in this winters transfer market.

Manchester United are reportedly set to plot summer pursuit of English global Harry Maguire as an alternative to Kalidou Koulibaly.

Manolas has a £30.75million release clause in his contract with the Italian club but it does not become active until the summer.

However, that has not appeared to deter United and reports on Tuesday claimed the club had renewed attempts to land the centre-half and were indeed ready to test Napoli's resolve to keep a player who only signed a new five-year deal at the club in September.

United had hoped Napoli's exit from the Champions League would increase their chances of landing the 27-year-old this month.

He is now expected to be on his way to Manchester United academy where he will continue his football career under Nicky Buti.
