Kalidou Koulibaly is open to joining a big club, his agent has confirmed.

The Napoli superstar is undoubtedly one of the best centre-backs in the world at present, and has naturally caught the attention of multiple European powerhouses in the process.

The defender has been linked with the likes of Juventus, Real Madrid, and Manchester United thus far, although his future destination remains far from certain at the moment.

The Mancunian giants have been persistently pursuing the 27-year-old, as they continue to endure problems in their central defence, especially against tougher opponents.

Reports suggest that Manchester United have set aside £100m to spend specifically on defensive reinforcements in the upcoming summer transfer window, which could easily cover the £90m valuation Napoli have set on Koulibaly.

Now, the Premier League side has received yet another boost in this transfer chase, as the player’s agent, Bruno Satin, has confirmed that the Senegalese is open to leaving the Italian outfit to join a big club in the future.

While recently addressing Koulibaly’s potential switch to Juventus, Satin told Radio Kiss Kiss (via Metro): “Koulibaly at Juventus? He’s very close to Napoli, the club and above all to the city.

“I don’t think he would ever betray them to go to Juventus, but let’s not forget that they are professional players. If you have the chance to play on important stages, you listen, even if I repeat he is very close to Napoli.”
