United are yet to announce their managerial plans for next term, with the caretaker boss currently due to stand down when his deal expires in June

But the ex-striker is the firm favourite to land the role permanently, and central defender Koulibaly is a prime target as the Old Trafford re-build continues apace following years of a chaotic transfer policy, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

United are not alone in their pursuit of the Napoli man, with Real Madrid and Barcelona also keeping tracks on the 27 year-old as well as Premier League rivals Chelsea .

Napoli chief Aurelio de Laurentiis is believed to want somewhere in the region of £128million for his man, which would represent a sizeable return on the £6.5million the club shelled out to bring him in from Genk in 2014.
