There are concerns that Napoli is going through the process of disintegration in the air. Starting with the general manager, it seems that even key players are leaving the team.
European soccer journalist Fabrizio Romano said on the 8th (Korean time), “Juventus is working to bring Cristiano Giuntoli, the Napoli general manager,” and “talks have already taken place between the two sides.”
According to local media such as Arenanapoli and Calcio Napoli 24, teams targeting Giuntoli include not only Juventus but also Premier League teams such as Manchester United, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur.
Giuntoli is the director of the current squad that has led Napoli to their first Serie A title in 33 years.
Since 2015, he has brought numerous players directly to Napoli.
We looked at the talents of players who are currently in charge of the core of the team, such as Victor Osimen, the team’s top scorer this season, Stanislav Lobotka, and Piotr Zielinski.
In the summer of last year, the squad was strengthened by bringing in Hvita Kvarachhelia and Kim Min-jae, who had played in the border leagues. The joining of the two was a big impetus for Napoli’s victory.
With the leadership of coach Luciano Spalletti added to this, Napoli reached the top of the league 33 years after the 1989/90 season.
The joy is short-lived, but Napoli is in danger of being shattered as Giuntoli, who has brought many players, connects with the club’s biggest rival team.
Players who have been rumored to be transferred will lose most of their power.
Min-jae Kim is being targeted by big clubs such as Manchester United and Manchester City, and Osimen is also constantly connected with big clubs such as Manchester United and Chelsea.
According to Arenanapoli, goalkeeper Alex Meret is showing interest from Tottenham in seeking a replacement for Hugo Lloris, while Corriere dello Sport said: “Zielinski and Irving Lozano cannot be renewed unless their wages are reduced. Negotiations are deadlocked.”
There is a high possibility that even Zielinski, whom the Napoli club believed in, will move to the Premier League, such as Newcastle.안전놀이터
As only Kvarachhelia, who was rumored to be transferring to Real Madrid, is known to be positive about renewing the contract, the Napoli squad is expected to face a major change next season. Unlike Kim Min-jae, Kvaratsuhelia does not have a buyout clause.
On top of this, there is an analysis that predicts that coach Spalletti will also leave the club as the possibility of moving to a big club is still alive, although the Naples club is exercising a one-year option contract. Reports have emerged about former Tottenham manager Antonio Conte’s transfer to Napoli.
Napoli will visit Korea this summer for a club friendly match. The match in Korea is expected to be the last match to see Napoli’s winning squad.
