Report: Ghoulam out, Grimaldo in

It’s reported Napoli have agreed a €30m deal for Alex Grimaldo, which will see Faouzi Ghoulam sold to Manchester United for €60m.

Ghoulam is currently sidelined with a cruciate ligament injury, but he signed a new contract with the Partenopei last month.

Now both Tuttosport and Premium Sport’s Raffaele Auriemma are reporting that a deal is in place to sign Grimaldo from Benfica for €30m.

That would free up Ghoulam to move to Manchester United, with the Red Devils ready to pay €60m for the Algerian.

While no release clause was confirmed when Ghoulam renewed his contract, it’s thought €60m is the figure which would trigger his release.
