‘De Sciglio couldn’t reject Napoli’

Mattia De Sciglio’s agent says “it would not be possible” for the Milan full-back to reject Napoli.

The Italian international has been linked with a move away from San Siro, with the Parteneopei and Juventus both thought to be interested.

“At the moment there’s no transfer news because we’re focused on the Euros,” Donato Orgnoni said on Radio Crc.

“Of course, we’ve had a look at the transfer market, we’re waiting to see what Milan want to do because we haven’t yet spoken to them.

“Yes, among the clubs we’ve talked to there’s Napoli. The Azzurri are definitely a great club and it’s a great environment, it would not be possible to say no.”

De Sciglio has been widely praised for his performance in Italy’s win over Spain yesterday, and his representative gives credit to CT Antonio Conte.

“The credit for De Sciglio’s performance definitely goes to Antonio Conte and the staff who have worked with him.

“Yesterday I was lucky enough to be at the stadium, it was great to see the joy of the whole bench who experienced the game intensely.

“There was a beautiful atmosphere. We all hugged at the end of the game and much of the credit for that goes to the CT of the national team.

“At the end of the match he [De Sciglio] came up the steps and hugged me, I’ve known him for 10 years and we’ve been through the ups and downs of his career.

“The last year and a half has been very difficult.”
