Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti has threatened to quit the club if star defender Kaldou Koulibaly is sold this summer. 

The powerful defender is a man in demand this summer, with Manchester United, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain all keen on the 27-year-old. 

Liverpool reportedly held talks with Koulibaly’s agent last week, while Manchester City launched a world-record £85m bid for the defender.

The Senegal international has plied his trade with Napoli since 2014 and has made over 150 appearances for the Serie A side. 

With numerous European giants circling around the highly-rated international, Koulibaly could well leave for Italy in a world-record deal for a defender. 

However, talking to the media, reported by Calciomercato, cited by the Daily Express, Ancelotti threatened to leave the side if his star man was sold ahead of the new campaign.

A move to Anfield for Koulibaly appears to be unlikely, however, with another centre-back possibly on Jurgen Klopp’s wishlist, a potential deal could well be one to keep an eye on over the coming months
