MANCHESTER CITY appear to have confirmed their interest in Kalidou Koulibaly after a gaffe in their official announcement for new £64million signing Ruben Dias.

The Portuguese centre-back has penned a six-year contract at the Etihad after his big-money move from Benfica.

However, City had been tipped to make a move for Napoli star Koulibaly during the summer.

And a mistake on Dias’ announcement shows Pep Guardiola could still be – or was at least – in the market for the Senegal international.

Midway down a piece confirming Dias will wear the No3 shirt at City, eagle-eyed fans spotted a link to a new web page.

It read: “CITYZENS: NEW SIGNING – Ask Kalidou Koulibaly a question.”

Whether City actually still want Koulibaly after signing Dias remains to be seen.

They also spent £40m on fellow centre-back Nathan Ake from Bournemouth.

And it could purely be an error from an old post done in anticipation of a deal for Koulibaly earlier in the transfer window.

But fans were excited nonetheless as it sent Twitter into a frenzy.

One wrote: “City about to sign Koulibaly too? Ah.”

Another said: “Imagine City don’t even announce Koulibaly and we just sub him on randomly in a game.”

One tweeted: “Koulibaly to City means Pep will probably use a new line up with 9 defenders and De Bruyne lol.”

Another added: “Haha so we were prepared for Koulibaly.”

Dias arrives at City with a big reputation, with icon Nicolas Otamendi being sent in the opposite direction.

Dias told the club’s official website: “To have the opportunity to join a club like City is a fantastic opportunity for me and one I couldn’t turn down.

“Their success speaks for itself. They have been the dominant team in England over the last few years, playing an attacking brand of football which I feel suits my own game.

“It is really exciting to be part of such a talented squad and to play for a world class manager like Pep Guardiola, who has a proven track record of developing young players like myself.

“I believe I can improve here, at a club whose ambitions match my own and I will give everything to be successful and win titles.”
