Manchester United and Manchester City target Kalidou Koulibaly has fuelled speculation that he could be on his way to the Premier League this summer.

Manchester United have long been linked with the centre-back, while City are in need of defensive reinforcements. Pep Guardiola’s side looking for a replacement to Vincent Kompany.

“I don’t know [if I’ll still be at Napoli next year], I think so,” he told Goal following Senegal’s 2-0 win over Tanzania. “But I have to play the Afcon and then after that, I’ll go back to Napoli. Everyone’s speaking about me, but I’m only speaking about Senegal because that’s my objective today and I want to achieve something big with Senegal.”

Koulibaly helped Senegal secure a 2-0 win over Tanzania in their Africa Cup of Nations opener. He would rather focus on their bid for success for now.

He added: “I don’t want to talk about my future today, I prefer to talk about Senegal. Senegal achieved something great today. I am 200 per cent with Senegal and 200% with 15 million Senegalese people. I’m relaxed, I want to focus on the Afcon and after that return to Napoli and we’ll see what happens. The most important thing now is to win with Senegal.”
