Drenthe reveals Italian offers

Royston Drenthe’s agent admits negotiations “with Inter, Napoli, Genoa and Torino, but also Russia, Turkey and Manchester City.”

His contract with Real Madrid has expired, so the wide man can make any move he likes as a free agent.

“This is the moment we are evaluating the offers. There have been many calls and now is the moment to decide,” representative Antonio Salerno told

“He is a player who knows how to push forward a lot, so he’s not really a classic full-back. I had contact with many Italian clubs, such as Inter, Napoli, Genoa and Torino.

“There are also offers from Russia and Turkey, particularly Galatasaray.”

Another of Drenthe’s agents, Serkan Kulup, spoke to Holland and dropped similar hints.

“We didn’t expect to be called by Manchester City and West Ham, but they asked me for information on Royston and his wage demands.

“There are also Serie A clubs on him, not to mention Turkish sides and Dynamo Kiev. We certainly cannot complain, but the important thing is that Royston gets back to the playing field.

“He would prefer to play for a club in the Champions League, so Manchester City, Dynamo Kiev and a big Turkish side are the favourites at the moment.”
