Bologna director of sport Carmine Longo says Miguel Britos is not for sale even amid interest from Juventus and Napoli.
The 25-year-old Uruguayan is one of Serie A's brightest defenders and Bologna's financial problems had given others hope of luring him away from the Renato Dall'Ara.
Speaking to Radio Crc, Longo revealed: "We have not just said no to Napoli but also to many other clubs like Juventus.
"He is a fundamental player for us in this moment of difficulty.
"What's more he has scored three goals. But we don't have any hostility towards Napoli.
"We could start to negotiate once the market is closed but not now."
