Napoli set €100m price tags on Koulibaly and Fabian,

Kalidou Koulibaly and Fabian Ruiz are being linked away from Napoli, but President Aurelio De Laurentiis has claimed he will only listen to the right offer.

The Senegalese defender Koulibaly has been targeted by the giants in Europe, with Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain reportedly chasing the centre-back.

The influential midfielder Fabian has emerged as a mark for the two Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona in recent weeks but De Laurentiis insisted that he doesn’t have to sell either of them unless he will get the right amount.

“Fabian still has three years [on his contract], Koulibaly two,” the patron told Il Corriere dello Sport. “Where’s the problem?

“If [Manchester] City or United, or PSG show up with €100m, I would think about it and it’s probable that they would leave, but always with the certainty that they want to leave.

“An offer of €60m, I won’t even consider. I’m firm, if I wanted to win the Scudetto at any cost, I would have €300m or €400m in debt.

“I look around and I see clubs at €500m, €600m, €1bn in debt. I don’t owe anyone.”
