Koulibaly has no interest in leaving Napoli

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly has distanced himself from the recent speculation which has associated him with a move to Manchester United.

The Senegal international has been with the Naples outfit for the past five years and during this period, he has been linked with a move to the Premier League on countless number of occasions.

A recent report from Tuttosport claimed that United may retain their long-term interest in Koulibaly at the turn of the year but the centre-back has clarified that he is solely focused on his job at Napoli.

"I'm used to it. So many stories come out each day, which say I'm leaving. Right now, my only objective is to win with Napoli. I don't care about the rest," he told.

Koulibaly has regularly stated that he wants to win the Serie A title with the Naples outfit before pursuing a fresh challenge elsewhere but that appears a difficult task this term.

Napoli have made an average beginning to the current league campaign and they are already six points behind table-toppers Juventus, who remain genuine favourites to secure a ninth straight title.
