Napoli star Christian Maggio is expected to leave the club this summer, despite a couple of years  left on his contract.

The 34-year-old rarely played last season, and made just 8 league appearances. Reports suggest Napoli are close to signing Davide Santon, and that could further jeopardise his chances.

Maggio has been linked to Watford, and many suggest a reunion with Mazzarri could be possible this summer.

According to an exclusive by Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla, Watford have made contact with Maggio, but there has been no outcome yet.

The Italian defender is also very keen on playing in the United States, and is ready to listen to proposals from MLS clubs.

Watford’s interest in Maggio doesn’t make a great deal of sense, they can surely do better. Maybe the idea of Premier League interest can help Maggio get an MLS deal
