Liverpool have been put off what would be a “disaster” of a transfer, and City have heeded a similar tact.

And according to Manchester Evening News, they ‘have NO interest’ in Koulibaly, and that ‘he is not even on a short-list of centre backs they outlined after the exit of Vincent Kompany’.

Harry Maguire remains their perfect replacement for the Belgian, but the Senegal international ‘does not fit the bill’ for four specific reasons.

His fee, a reported £107m, is named, along with Koulibaly’s age and lack of homegrown status in comparison to his Leicester colleague.
