Uncertain future for Giovanni Di Lorenzo

One of the issues that will hold the bench for a long time to come in the Napoli household is that related to the future of Giovanni Di Lorenzo, who has reportedly expressed his willingness to leave the partenopei in this market session. The new Azzurri coach Antonio Conte, for his part, would have already moved to try to convince the player to stay, since he is considered by the Lecce coach one of the pillars from which to start again. On the future and on the market rumors related to an interest from Juventus for the Napoli captain, the player’s agent Mario Giuffredi expressed himself in no uncertain terms at the microphones of "TvPlay".

"The meeting with Conte è was a moment of great cordiality and availability. I explained to the coach the reasons that led to our decision to leave Naples. He strongly reiterated his will to retain Giovanni, while we continued to pursue what è our path. There'è nothing definitive yet, but in soccer as in life anything can happen" began the agent of the former Empoli player regarding the meeting he had with the Lecce coach.

"I am convinced that all this hoopla came about only because a company called Juventus was brought up. I can say firmly that I have never had contact with them therefore with Cristiano Giuntoli. We have not spoken neither I nor the player with the bianconeri. By the way, it is not è excluded that Di Lorenzo could go to other clubs, there is not only Juventus" added Mario Giuffredi.

The person concerned also expressed himself on the issue during a press conference a few days before Italy's debut against Albania at Euro 2024: "I spoke with the club" at the end of the championship, but now the concentration" is maximum on this competition. Someone said that I am sad, silent, but these things are not true. I am serene and ready to face this European Championship to the fullest with Italy, so as to put aside the complicated season experienced with Napoli. When the time comes to talk about my future with the club, I will do it without backing down. Now, forò, the priorityà è to do well with the blue jersey".
