Napoli head coach Carlo Ancelotti has reiterated that Kalidou Koulibaly won't be leaving the club at the end of the season.
The Senegal International continues to be linked with a move to Manchester United ahead of the 2019-20 league season, while Real Madrid are the latest club rumoured to be preparing a move for the burly centre-back.
Ancelotti, though, is confident of holding onto Koulibaly past the current campaign. The 27-year-old is contracted to the Serie A club until 2023.
“Napoli will not be forced to sell. Koulibaly will not leave here," Ancelotti said, as per the Mirror.
Koulibaly has established himself as a mainstay in the Napoli defensive line over the past few seasons. In total, he has featured in 38 matches across all competitions for the club this season.
Napoli beat AS Roma 4-1 in the Italian capital on Sunday to strengthen their grip on second place.
