Napoli are reportedly willing to let Allan leave for Paris Saint-Germain this summer, if it means keeping hold of star defender Kalibou Koulibaly.

Both players have been attracting a lot of interest, with Manchester United and Bayern Munich both keen on bringing in Koulibaly in the close season.

Both United and the German champions are expected to make bids of around €110m (£94m) for the centre-back over the summer, but Napoli are keen to keep hold of him.

They are so keen to fight off interest in the Senegal international that they are willing to let Allan depart so they don’t need the money for Koulibaly, reports Football Italia.

PSG were told Allan would set them back €110m (£94m) in January, but will expect to be able to get their man for less than that over the summer.



The Ligue 1 champions are likely to come in with a big closer to €75m (£64m) for the Brazilian midfielder at the end of the season.

United have been quoted as much as £150m for Koulibaly as Napoli look to ward off his numerous suitors.

While it is United and Bayern that appear to be showing most interest at the moment, Real Madrid and Barcelona are also thought to have been a fan of the 27-year-old.

If it turns out that Koulibaly is unavailable, then Man Utd are likely to go for the cheaper option of Leicester City’s Harry Maguire, who could cost around £65m.
