Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti dismissed talk of a potential exit for Kalidou Koulibaly, amid reported interest from Manchester United
The Senegalese centre-back has managed 141 appearances in all competitions for Napoli since joining from Belgian club Racing Genk in 2014.
In light of the recent racial abuse he received at the San Siro against Inter Milan last month, rumours have been circulating that Koulibaly wishes to complete a transfer to United.
But Ancelotti is certain the 27-year-old is happy where he is and has never shown any desire to leave Napoli.
“In England, they write that Koulibaly can leave because of the problem of racism, I do not think so,” said Ancelotti, according to Sports Mole.
“Koulibaly is happy in Naples, he’s upset like others, but it will not be a trigger for a goodbye.
“He never showed it, he wants to stay in Naples and in Italy, a country he likes very much.”
Koulibaly is contracted at the Stadio San Paolo for four-and-a-half years.
