Paulo Henrique Ganso’s agent has insisted that he has never spoken to Napoli about his client.
The Partenopei are set to sue Sao Paulo after the Brazilian club’s President claimed that money for the midfielder from the Stadio San Paolo outfit would come from the Neapolitan mafia.
But the representative of the Selecao international has reiterated that there has never been any discussions with Rafa Benitez’s men.
“There is no agreement, there hasn’t even been a negotiation,” Giuseppe Dioguardi told CalcioNapoli.
“The rumours aren’t true at all. Yesterday I was at the Maracana, and then a call came through informing me of the rumours that had gone round.
“But I want to repeat that nothing is true. It is just a rumour.
“What the President said? We’re all unhappy about that. I was born in Brazil, but my father is from Naples and I have relatives there.”
