Kalidou Koulibaly Napoli

Carlo Ancelotti claims Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly is not for sale amid reported interest from Manchester United.

Koulibaly has been linked with an Old Trafford move for quite some time with the latest report on Sunday claiming he would cost United a nine-figure sum.

Calcio Mercato say that Gazzetta dello Sport place that amount at around €150million if the Red Devils want to buy the defender in the summer.

However, Ancelotti is determined to keep his squad at Napoli together and doesn’t want to lose any of his best players.

“I have a team that is already well structured and with margins for growth, even if young,” Ancelotti said.

“In pivotal roles we are in place, the backbone is robust: two valuable goalkeepers, a reliable defence with a phenomenon like Koulibaly, the well-structured midfield with Allan, [Piotr] Zielinski and Fabian [Ruiz].

“They are destined to grow, with targeted investments made in harmony with the club.

“The big names will all remain, Napoli is not forced to sell and make capital gains. Also, Koulibaly? Absolutely, from here he does not move.”
