Internacional to keep Damiao

Leandro Damiao’s proposed move to Napoli looks further and further away, thanks to Qatari club Al-Rayyan.

The 23-year-old striker has been ear-marked as the man the Partenopei want to fill the gap left by Edinson Cavani.

But the deal has hit a snag with Internacional admitting that their own target Nilmar, is not likely to leave the Middle East.

“If Al-Rayyan are able to hold on to Nilmar,” sporting director Cesar Luis Souto de Moura told Radio Guaiba.

“Then we will do the same with Damiao.”
