Lorenzo Insigne has been at Napoli since 2006, spending his entire career, apart from three early loans, at the Italian club.
He’s from the Naples area and has always seemed very connected to his club.
Transfer rumours come and go, and Insigne, now 27 years of age, remains where he is.
Tuesday’s edition of Gazzetta dello Sport has an article detailing the player’s recent frustration after whistles from the crowd and doubts about his commitment.
Insigne was clearly angry with some reactions and made his frustration clear, which will likely just hype things up for a while. He said he’ll continue to give his all for Napoli, as long as he’s there… the latter part creating doubt.
Usually this would all blow over, but with Mino Raiola as the player’s agent, anything can happen. Manchester United, Liverpool and PSG are named as clubs that Raiola could deal with for the player.
It’s stated that ‘recent indiscretions’ have suggested the agent is ‘ready to present’ a €100m offer from Manchester United.
The article then states: ‘These rumours, however, have a good percentage of fantasy, Insigne is linked to Napoli by a contract for another three years and it will not be easy to go for the sale with De Laurentiis.’
The journalist writing the Gazzetta article also pushed the rumours on RMC, via TMW.
In those claims he said that if Insigne shows a clear desire to leave then Napoli may consider speaking with clubs.
The likelihood is always that he’ll stay.
