Paris St Germain have pulled out of the race for Kalidou Koulibaly because of pressure from Manchester United but that could enable Liverpool to secure his signature claims a report.

The sought-after defender, who turns 29 on June 20, is widely expected to leave Napoli after six seasons with the Serie A outfit.

Club president Aurelio De Laurentiis had previously valued the Senegal international at more than £100million but the financial impact of COVID-19 could see a bid in the region of £75million accepted.

The Express cite L'Equipe as saying that PSG have abandoned their attempts to land the Napoli centre-back partly due to strong pressing from Manchester United.

However, they add that:

PSG's decision to withdraw their interest because of Manchester United pressure could benefit Liverpool.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is claimed to have personally phoned Koulibaly to convince him to join the European champions and less competition for his signature could swing the deal in Liverpool's favour.
