When Vincenzo Morabito speaks to radio stations in Italy, it’s normally to make big claims.
The intermediary often discusses the ins and outs at big clubs, and once claimed Arsenal put forward €90m for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang before the Gabon international moved two summers later for €60m.
But, when it comes to Arkadiusz Milik and a move to Tottenham, Morabito was keen to play down the possibility of a transfer on Sunday.
Speaking to Radio Punto Novo, relayed by TuttoMercatoWeb, he said: “Milik to Tottenham seems complicated. They have the best English striker in the league and he’d go to sit behind Kane. It’s easier for him to end up at Atlético Madrid or Juventus.
“This transfer window is being drawn out in a certain way: exchanges, profits, balance sheets being levelled out”.
For Napoli, the ideal would be for Milik to stat put, but with the Poland international yet to renew his contact, which expires next year, they have to face the possibility of him leaving this summer.
Aurelio de Laurentiis has placed a €50m price tag on his player, which seems a bit high for a club like Tottenham to spend on, especially for a back up to Harry Kane.
It always seemed a bit of a stretch that Milik could end up at Spurs, and if those prone to big claims in Italy are also denying its possibility, then it really does seem dead in the water.
