Carlo Ancelotti gives update on Kalidou Koulibaly transfer!

The Red Devils were keen to lure Kalidou Koulibaly in January transfer window.

It’s an open secret that Manchester United are desperate to land a defender in 2019. Their leaky defence led to Jose Mourinho to deploy the likes of Nemanja Matic and McTominay play at centre back. The Red Devils have conceded the most goals in top 6 of the Premier League this season. Under Solskjaer, United have kept only three clean sheets, it has led to the Red Devils looking for a defender. Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti gives an update on Kalidou Koulibaly transfer.

Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti insists Manchester United transfer target Kalidou Koulibaly is happy to stay in Italy despite being the victim of recent racial abuse. The United defensive target was subjected to monkey chants throughout Napoli’s defeat to Inter Milan on Boxing Day. Senegalese international Koulibaly was sent off in the 1-0 defeat at San Siro after Napoli had asked for the game to be suspended on a number of occasions throughout the match. However, despite the vile racist abuse he was subjected to, Koulibaly’s club manager insists the centre-back is happy to remain at Napoli despite the interest from United.

Ancelotti said, “In England, they write that Koulibaly can leave because of the problem of racism.”

Ancelotti further added that the incident won’t trigger for a move. He said, “I do not think so, 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.” Following the racist incident back in December Paul Pogba sent a message of support to Koulibaly. He wore a special headband around his right wrist with ‘Honour’ printed on it during the Premier League win against Bournemouth.

Author’s Take:

It seems Ancelotti is in no mood to sell Koulibaly. The racism incident is surely a disappointing and a head down incident. However, that incident wouldn’t make the Senegalese leave Serie A. A host of Serie A player commended the act and supported the Napoli defender.
