AC Milan and Inter expressing interest in Napoli captain
After being left out of both of Napoli’s matches so far this season by coach Rafael Benitez club captain Paolo Cannavaro could be set to depart Naples with AC Milan and Inter hoping to negotiate a deal for the defender.
According to reports in Italy the player’s representatives are already in Milan to discuss terms although the Partenopei are currently blocking the transfer of the 32-year-old centre-back.
While the Naples club insist that he will not be leaving a deal could still be struck by the close of the transfer window on Monday night.
Cannavaro was an integral part of the Napoli side under new Nerazzurri coach Walter Mazzarri and could be a useful bargaining chip in securing his services.
