Kalidou Koulibaly Reacts to Manchester United Links After Napoli Knocked Out of Europa League

​Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly has insisted he will only think about his future at the end of the season, as he continues to be linked with a summer move to Manchester United.

Koulibaly is thought to be one of the Red Devils' primary targets ahead of the summer transfer window and is expected to cost at least £90m, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to rebuild his squad to fight for trophies next season.

​Speaking after ​Napoli's elimination from the Europa League at the hands of ​Arsenal on Thursday, Koulibaly insisted he has no immediate plans to leave the ​Serie A, but will consider his next move in the summer.

He said: "I grew up in this league. It's the league that made me the player I am today. To me what matters most is to finish the season well, then we'll see."

Manager Carlo Ancelotti confirmed to Tuttosport (via ​Goal) that Koulibaly will soon have a release clause of €150m in his contract, adding that only such an offer would tempt the club to sell.

He said: "The best centre-back in the world? Yes. And he has more room for improvement. He's worth €150m and he is non-transferable. Koulibaly's contract will expire in 2023. In 2021 he will have a €150m release clause, but Napoli do not need to sell, the president does not want to sell and the question does not arise."


​United have been linked with a number of centre-backs as part of their squad overhaul, and Solskjaer is said to have been ​given a transfer kitty of around £250m to help strengthen the squad.

Koulibaly is near the top of their wish list, but there are plenty of other stars who have found their names linked with a move to Old Trafford. Ajax sensation Matthijs de Ligt and ​Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho are both thought to be in United's sights, in what promises to be a hectic summer.
