Could be this be the saving grace for all City fans? Reports out of Italy have seemingly confirmed its a matter of weeks before City add a new center back.

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly is reportedly joining Manchester City this summer in a £72m (€80m) deal, after turning down interest from Newcastle United. That according to journalist Mattino in Naples.

Kouliably is one of Europe’s mostcoveted centre backs, after six impressive years in Naples and despite interest from PSG, Barcelona and Real Madrid too, the 29-year-old looks set to join the Premier League.

It would be a massive signing for City and maybe fix all defensive woes.
