Manchester United target Kalidou Koulibaly has responded to reports linking him with AS Roma exit.
Koulibaly was a target for United in the summer but a deal failed to materialize and earlier in the week, reports emerged that the defender is a priority signing for the Red Devils next summer alongside Declan Rice. And now the French international says he is fully focused on Napoli despite the reports linking him with United.
"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 said.
"Our objective remains to beat the best teams in Italy and win the title. This season is more difficult because all the teams have got stronger and Serie A has become more competitive. I haven’t made the best start to the season. Juventus remain the team to beat. For our part, we must work even harder, improving our game to get closer to them."
"Our objective is to qualify for the Champions League knockout stage as soon as possible. We started well by beating Liverpool with a top performance. We regret not beating Genk, but that’s football. We must think positively and be aware that we can do well. My objective is to help the club and team win a trophy now."
Koulibaly's contract with the French Ligue 1 side is set to expire in the summer of 2023.
