Napoli plan satellite in Portugal?

Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis is reportedly planning to buy a Portuguese club with the aid of super-agent Jorge Mendes.

There were reports over the last few days that De Laurentiis was in talks to snap up a Belgian side and use it as a feeder club.

However, now Rai Sport claim that the patron has turned his focus towards Portugal and flew out to Lisbon on Monday for a meeting with Jorge Mendes.

He is said to be evaluating the purchase of a club either in the top flight or second division.

If Mendes is involved, that would be a huge advantage, as it’d give Napoli a way in to his scouting network and vast roster of players.
