Loading… Koulibaly wanted Napoli extensionKalidou Koulibaly’s hope of renewing his contract with Napoli is on the cliff-hanger, according to transfer expert Alfredo Pedullà, as the club plan to transfer him to Manchester City. The defender has long been the most valuable players in the Partenopei squad and previous offers of over €100m were rejected from the likes of Manchester United and PSG. His contract runs to June 2023 and there is no release clause. Sportitalia and Gazzetta dello Sport transfer correspondent Pedullà claims Koulibaly wanted to extend his contract with a slightly improved salary of €7-8m per season.Advertisement However, Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis refused and instead put the Senegal international on the market. Manchester City are the hot favourites to sign the 29-year-old, but that may well be put on the backburner if they put most of their finances into getting Lionel Messi from Barcelona. Napoli’s asking price for Koulibaly is €75-80m, whereas the offer so far from City is €65m plus bonuses.

Manchester United have named former player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as caretaker manager until the end of the season, a day after sacking Jose Mourinho.Solskjaer spent 11 seasons at Old Trafford, scoring the winning goal in the 1999 Champions League final.The 45-year-old takes over with United sixth in the Premier League. “Manchester United is in my heart and it’s brilliant to be coming back in this role,” said the Norwegian.“This is an opportunity I had to take.“I’m really looking forward to working with the very talented squad we have, the staff and everyone at the club.”Solskjaer, who earlier this month signed a new deal as manager of Norwegian club Molde, will be joined by Mike Phelan, who returns as first-team coach having previously worked alongside Sir Alex Ferguson.Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna, both part of Mourinho’s coaching staff, will continue to work under Solskjaer.Solskjaer’s first match in charge will be against Cardiff – where he endured an ill-fated spell as manager – on Saturday.He was relegated from the Premier League with the Bluebirds during an eight-month spell as manager in 2014, then sacked after a poor start to the Championship campaign.United will look to appoint a permanent boss at the end of the season.“Ole is a club legend with huge experience, both on the pitch and in coaching roles,” said Ed Woodward, United’s executive vice-chairman.“His history at Manchester United means he lives and breathes the culture here and everyone at the club is delighted to have him and Mike Phelan back.“We are confident they will unite the players and the fans as we head into the second half of the season.”United confirmed the return of Solskjaer, who started his coaching career as the reserve team manager at Old Trafford, on Wednesday morning.The club appeared to inadvertently announce his arrival 12 hours earlier, when a video featuring Solskjaer scoring the winner in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich in 1999 was briefly on their official website.It led to Norway’s Prime Minister Erna Solberg welcoming Solskjaer’s appointment on social media, writing: “Great day for Norwegian football. Good luck keeping control of the Red Devils.” She later deleted the tweet.Molde’s 2018 season has finished for the winter and does not restart until March.United’s statement announcing Solskjaer’s arrival as caretaker manager made no mention of whether or not he will return to Molde when the Premier League season ends.But the Norwegian club stressed they were only “lending” Solskjaer to United, indicating they expect him to return to his previous role.“This is a big opportunity for Molde FK, we think it will be developing and helping to put Molde further on the football card,” Oystein Neerland, the club’s chief executive officer, said.Solskjaer is in his second spell as Molde manager after returning to the club, little over a year after he was sacked by Cardiff, in October 2015.In his first spell, Solskjaer led the club to their first Norwegian title in 2011, going on to retain the trophy in the following season.(BBC)Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Ole Solskjaer
