Napoli defender Koulibaly: I don't like being known as 'the €100M man'

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly insists he'd happily play out his career in Naples.

The Senegal international says he's never discussed leaving Napoli with management.

“My family are very happy here and that makes me happy," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I don't like being known as 'the €100m man'. How much I'm worth is for the directors to decide.

“All I'm thinking about is giving 100 percent on the pitch. In football, you never know what's around the corner.

“I've never talked to the club about leaving. We have to find a solution and we'll find it, but I've never talked about the transfer market.

“We'll see what the President decides to do and if he proposes me an extension which, therefore, would allow me to end my career here.

“I still have three years left on my contract, so there's still plenty of time. I'm not thinking about anything other than Napoli."
