Jose Mourinho remained unobtrusive in the declared interest of Manchester United for defender Kalidou Koulibaly, valued at £ 94 million.
The Red Devils boss has been looking for a central back since the summer and played against two midfielders behind the 2-2 draw against Southampton on Saturday night.
Mourinho is expected to be entrusted with the role of an army chief in January, which means that in theory he can make the choice of a central defender of his choice next month.
Defender Koulibaly, whose prize amounts to 94 million pounds, is at the top of Mourinho's wish list, but the Portuguese did not want to shed light on these rumors in his comments after the match this week -end.
"I can not answer your question," Mourinho replied about Koulibaly.
"If that's true, if it's not true, I can not answer your question, maybe your question is first on the market and maybe the next press conference." will have two more questions, and maybe the next press conference will have three more.
"The only thing I can tell you is that Koulibaly is a Napoli player, and I do not mean players from other clubs."
Southampton took a two-goal lead against Manchester United on Saturday before the Red Devils returned.
Both teams entered the break with the level of the scores, and none could find a very important winner in the second half.
Mourinho will he be the boss of Man United this time next year?
