NAPLES – It would have served a twist. A coup de théatre, to put it in the language of oïl: yesterday the Naples Keylor waited Navas until 11 pm, until the last useful moment of the French market, but the agreement between Gato and PSG on severance pay has not arrived and today is the day of the Champions list. The ds Joints he also tried to borrow it, with a different formula, but the player preferred the termination: road blocked and maybe meeting in winter. Yes, but now? Discounted: the blue club will focus on reconstruction of the relationship with MeretWednesday penalty-shoots with Lecce, and above all on the conclusion of the infamous renewal until 2027: practically ready for months but frozen by Alex in the middle of the vortex NavasKepa and not so obvious. For the record, an operation in France was eventually closed: the sale of Ounas to Lille. Another expiring man who, like Fabian, had ruled out renewal as he approached the junction.

In vain wait for Navas

And then, nothing Navas. At least in this phase: it is not excluded that the Naples try again a January, the idea remains, but for the moment Keylor remains at PSG. To act as deputy of Donnarumma with a salary of 9 million per season and with a third, Sergio Rico, from 3 million per year. An opportunity wasted by everyone, no doubt about it, but pursued with stubbornness and patience until the end: Giuntoli worked in silence, he believed in it, he also closed with the player and then he began to wait, but Paris denied the goalkeeper the severance pay required by virtue of the 18 million two-year deal and the deal became too complex to resolve in one day.

Naples, super market

The market it remains however super: the purchases of Raspadori, Olivera, Ndombelé, Kim, Kvaratskhelia, Simeone, Sirigu and Ostigard deliver scepter and crown to ds Giuntoli. Valued by the assignment to Fabian’s PSG for 23 million, a player expiring in June 2023 and absolutely firm on the position not to renew. A masterpiece. Navas would have guaranteed the international depth and experience lost especially with the farewells of Mertens, Insigne, Ospina and Koulibaly, but to Spalletti was entrusted with an important, large, young and talented squad. Theobjective initial of the company to reduce the amount of wages: about forty million gross less in the balance sheet. And finally, the sale of Ounas to Lille: 2.5 million plus 500,000 euros in bonuses and 40 percent on future resale. Ambrosino, eighteen-year-old prince of the Primavera scorers, will instead go on loan to Como. In B.

The renewal of Meret

From today, in short, the Naples will focus primarily on reconstruction of the relationship with Meretprotagonist of a complex summer tormented by the Kepa and Navas events, and of a renewal until the 2027 practically defined and never signed after the entrance of the two bulky colleagues on the scene. After all, Alex has always asked guarantees techniquesexplaining his desire for continuity and the need to feel a trust never completely stolen since the arrival of Ospina: legitimate at 25 and after several seasons as deputy (in fact). Giuntoli and his manager Pastorello will speak very soon, and among other things Meret, back from four games as a starter and from rigor saved in Colombo with Lecce, he is also a man of interest National: he is a standard bearer for Mancini’s Italy and his future embraces all shades of blue. In optics Januarythe club has decided not to close the deal Solbakken to zero: the Norwegian winger who will free himself from Bodø on December 31 was in hand and had also undergone a visit to the left shoulder (subsequently operated on).
