Agent downplays Koulibaly Barca link

The agent of Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly insists the player is not thinking about leaving the club despite links to Barcelona.

A report in Diario Sport earlier this week linked the Senegalese centre half with a future move to the Blaugrana, who are reportedly on the lookout for defensive reinforcements.

“The local newspaper that reported it uses the transfer market to increase sales,” Bruno Satin explained on Radio Crc.

“At this time Kalidou is 100% focused on the league and on the return match with Manchester City.

“I was at the stadium for the first leg and I saw Napoli play a high level game where they came close to matching them.”

Koulibaly initially joined Napoli from Genk in 2014 and has played a central role in helping them to top spot in Serie A.
