Kalidou Koulibaly delivers transfer blow to Chelsea and Manchester United

Kalidou Koulibaly’s name has been long linked with Manchester United and Chelsea as both clubs have been looking to strengthen their defence.

Heavily tipped to sign Juventus’ Daniele Rugani last summer, Napoli ace Koulibaly was also linked with a big-money transfer to SW6 to reunite with Maurizio Sarri.

Manchester United are another club believed to be ready to move for the Senegal international but it seems he is happy in Naples at present.

“I am flattered and it’s pleasing to know, but I am concentrated only on Napoli and proving what I can do on the pitch,” he told Rai Sport, as reported by Football Italia .

“There is a lot of motivation for me at Napoli, we want to prove we’re at the top level and I want to keep improving here.”

Quizzed on if he is now one of the best defenders in the world, he added: “I don’t know about that, but I am always trying to better myself.

“Since I first came here, my focus has always been to keep improving with Napoli.

“I am doing pretty well and want to keep improving here.”
