Italian giants Napoli will only relinquish the services of Senegalese defender Kalidou Koulibaly if they receive a record transfer fee.

According to Radio Kiss Kiss, Manchester United are set to rival Chelsea and Arsenal for the services of the Teranga Lions centre-back.

However, the Naples-based club have reportedly issued a hands-off warning by demanding a world-record fee for a defender.

The club's director of sport Cristiano Giuntoli will only consider a huge offer in the range of €100m – a figure which eclipses the €85m Liverpool paid Southampton for Virgil Van Dijk earlier this year.

Should the defender move from Naples for anywhere near that fee, it would represent an incredible profit on the €7.75m Napoli spent to sign him from KRC Genk four years ago.
