In a shock twist, Cagliari claim “it’s all concluded. Davide Astori will not go to Napoli.”
The Italy international defender had been expected to make the €12-14m move  with crunch talks today at the Hotel Hilton.
However, Cagliari director of sport Nicola Salerno left the negotiations late this afternoon and spoke to TMW.
“It’s all concluded. Astori will not go to Napoli.”
It remains to be seen whether he will stay in Sardinia or go to one of the other clubs interested in his signature, which include Milan and Southampton.
