Inter's Cristian Chivu will not be joining Napoli at the end of the season, his agent has insisted.
"These are just rumours," Victor Becali told Dolce Sport. "There are no truth in the stories at all.
"Chivu has a substantial salary and it seems impossible to me that Napoli would make that kind of investment."
The Romanian international, contracted to the Nerazzurri until June 2012, earns €3.5m a season at San Siro.
Chivu, 30, has been associated with an exit after some unconvincing displays for the Italian giants this term.
Able to play at left-back or as a central defender, the former Roma star does have admirers in Spain and England.
