Walter Mazzarri is widely expected to announce his exit from Napoli this evening, with Inter, Roma, Anzhi or even a rest period on the table.
The Coach has refused to discuss his future until after the season has concluded, which will be after tonight’s game with Roma.
However, he dropped numerous hints in Saturday’s Press conference that his decision to walk away has already been made.
There are reports negotiations with President Aurelio De Laurentiis did not find the response he was looking for.
Mazzarri wanted star players brought in so he could challenge for the Scudetto and progress in the Champions League.
De Laurentiis has stated he would prefer a Borussia Dortmund approach of finding talented young players to develop and keep the costs down.
Feeling he has nowhere more to take the club after four years, Mazzarri would prefer to leave now.
He has been heavily linked with the jobs at Inter, Napoli and now with Russian club Anzhi, but a period of rest is also an option.
