Man Utd target Koulibaly: I'm pleased that many teams follow me

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly admits he is happy hearing the likes of Manchester United chasing his signature.

Napoli are reported to be wanting close to £90million to part with the Senegalese defender, who was heavily linked with an Old Trafford switch in January.

"My future? I don't know if I'm one of the strongest defenders. I always try to give my best," Koulibaly told Rai Sport on Friday.

"Since I'm here, I always try to grow with Napoli. I have a lot of motivation to go on and I want to keep doing this.

"I am pleased that many teams follow me, but I want to demonstrate on the field that I am at the level of the greatest and I want to show it in the future."
