And he has admitted being linked with Europe's top sides is flattering – vowing to continue to prove he is an elite defender.

Koulibaly, 27, told Rai Sport: "My future? I don't know if I'm one of the strongest defenders. I always try to give my best.

"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."

Napoli could charge around £90million for Koulibaly, which would smash the highest fee paid for a centre-back.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is being consulted about any additions despite being in a caretaker role.

While he has United playing free-flowing football going forwards, their defence remains an Achilles' heel.
