Napoli president De Laurentiis insists Man Utd, Chelsea target Koulibaly won't leave on cheap

Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis is adamant Kalidou Koulibaly will only leave on his terms.

Both Manchester United and Manchester City have been linked with a potential move - perhaps most notably Pep Guardiola's side, as they seek a partner for Aymeric Laporte. Chelsea too, with Frank Lampard wanting to stiffen up his defence, says the Mirror.

“Kalidou is a wonderful person and of course it'd be sad to lose him," the Napoli chief told Sky Italia.

“Everything has a time and a place, even when it comes to going our separate ways.

“Having said that, we don't have €90m (£81m) on the table and in any case, it takes two to separate."
