United are widely expected to be heavily involved in the January transfer window as Mourinho attempts to resolve their frailties at the back.
Reports have now emerged claiming that United are already looking to put the wheels in motion over a deal with Koulibaly.
The Napoli star is on the radar of a number of clubs across Europe and United are keen to steal a march on their rivals.
But the report states that their initial offer of £91million has been rejected “immediately” by club president Aurelio De Laurentiis.
