Napoli will not sell Koulibaly

Napoli will not be parting ways with Kalidou Koulibaly this summer, according to a report in the Mirror.

Manchester United, who have been actively pursuing their interest in the defender, have apparently been informed that even €150 million would not be enough to prize him away from Naples.

Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti has recently confirmed that the Senegalese international’s contract runs for four more years, with a buyout clause set at €130 million – which doesn’t kick in before the summer of 2021. The Serie A side are therefore in the strongest position possible and do not plan to accept any bids whatsoever.

Ancelotti expressed his belief that Koulibaly is the best centre-back in the world, and he will be a vital part of the team that will look to bring the eight-year domination of Juventus in Italy to an end next season. They will finish the 2018/19 second to the giants from Turin as they have 79 points to their name, 11 less than the champions and 13 more than Atalanta and Inter Milan in third and fourth place, respectively.
