Luca Antonelli’s agent has told Napoli that they won’t be able to sign the Genoa player on a Bosman free transfer.
The Azzurri are keen on the Italian international who is only contracted to the Marassi outfit until June 2014.
“My son’s deal is set to run out next year, but we have already verbally agreed to extend that with Genoa,” Roberto Antonelli told Radio CRC.
“Seeing as we are people who respect promises, we already consider his agreement to have been renewed.
“If Napoli want to sign him then they must firstly speak with Genoa…”
Antonelli is a 26-year-old left-back who has played for Milan, Bari and Parma in his career to date.
