The Napoli superstar, 29, is widely considered to be one of the best central defenders in world football.

And bookmakers Betfair think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are leading the congested battle for his signature.
The Red Devils are priced at 3/1 to be Koulibaly's next club either in January or beyond.
United have been on the look-out for a fresh face to partner captain Harry Maguire for several months.
Brighton centre-back Ben White, Real Madrid's Raphael Varane and RB Leipzig enforcer Dayot Upamecano have all been linked.
But Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo or Eric Bailly will likely need to follow Timothy Fosu-Mensah out the door before a mega-money arrival.

Mauricio Pochettino's Paris Saint-Germain are United's closest pursuers at 3/1.
Premier League duo Liverpool and Chelsea are next in the betting at 5/1 and 8/1 respectively.
The Reds are obviously in need of defensive reinforcements with Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all sidelined through injury.
Real Madrid are priced at 10/1 while Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are the outsiders of the bunch at 12/1.
However, anyone thinking of signing Koulibaly in January will have to meet his astronomical £100m valuation.
Jim White told talkSPORT: "There isn’t a window in the last two, three or four that we don’t see big mentions of the Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.
"This morning, I spoke to Aurelio De Laurentiis, the Napoli owner, and said what about your player, are there bids in for him?
"He laughed it off saying he’s not for sale. He’s absolutely not for sale unless one of the big clubs in England come up with £100million.
"But it seems on this occasion Koulibaly is going nowhere. He stays and that was as recent as this morning. Anyone going in with anything other than £100million for Koulibaly can forget it."
