Internacional president Giovanni Luigi claims they have not been contacted by Napoli about Leandro Damiao.
I’m sure we’re all fed up by now of hearing rumours of the Brazilian joining Tottenham, Southampton, Napoli and who ever else has two pennies to rub together.
Internacional are adamant that they get 25million Euros for the striker and expects Damiao to remain with the club for another season at least. We all know however that the club and the player’s agent will continue to tout his services to European clubs for the remainder of the transfer window.
There still appears to be no news on our hunt for a new forward. We cannot go into the new season with just Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor, our striking options need a fresh injection of talent – but will Levy be willing to pay to land a proven striker? That is the question.
“No one from Napoli has spoken with me and I do not know if they are talking to his agent,” Luigi told Italian station Radio CRC
“But if I like a football player, I’m going to talk to his club and not with the agent.
“For me there is no negotiation started for Damiao with Napoli, this must be a guess because, I repeat, Napoli have not mentioned this interest either now or in the past.
“How much is he worth? I do not know if I’m going to sell. He should remain here. I believe the player will be here for at least another year.”
