Kalidou Koulibaly signs new five-year Napoli contract, despite reported Manchester United interest

Kalidou Koulibaly has signed a new five-year contract to stay at Napoli.

The club’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis confirmed the deal on Saturday, prior to the club’s pre-season friendly at Liverpool.

De Laurentiis was initially asked about Lille defender Kevin Malcuit, who he confirmed has now signed.

“Yes, all true,” the president confirmed to Sky, “He comes outright for a total of €13 million.” He then declared: “Koulibaly , he has renewed with us for another five seasons.


“He is the best defender in the world probably. For him I have refused €90 million from three clubs because I do
not sell.”

This announcement will come as a blow to multiple top European clubs including Manchester United.

The Red Devils are known to be long-term admirers of the Senegalese centre-back and were rumoured to be targeting him this summer before switching their
attentions towards Barcelona’s Yerry Mina .
