Napoli manager, Carlo Ancelotti has insisted that defender, Kalidou Koulibaly, will remain at the club for another season despite interest from Manchester United.
Ancelotti stated this after Napoli defeated Bologna 3-2 in the Serie A encounter over the weekend.
“Koulibaly will remain in Naples in the next season,” Ancelotti told Radio Rai.
Koulibaly had in recent weeks been strongly linked with a move to Man United in this summer’s transfer window.
The 27-year-old Senegal international is valued at €150million by Napoli.
Speaking on a potential move to Manchester United or other clubs, Koulibaly told Rai Sport in February: “My future? I don’t. I don’t know if I’m one of the strongest defenders. I always try to give my best.
“Since I’m here, I always try to grow with Napoli. I have a lot of motivation to go on and I want to keep doing this.
“I am pleased that many teams follow me, but I want to demonstrate on the field that I am at the level of the greatest and I want to show it in the future.”
