Mario Rui return to Portugal?

Napoli defender Mario Rui will reportedly leave in the summer, with Benfica and Sporting CP interested in signing him.

According to newspaper Il Mattino, the Portugal international is unhappy with the criticism he received this year and could be heading for an exit in the next window.

The 27-year-old scored for the Azzurri in their 2-1 win over SPAL on the weekend, but strangely didn’t celebrate scoring his first goal of the season.

Several high-profile mistakes in crunch games this term saw the former Empoli defender on the end of some harsh insults from fans of the Partenopei.

The left-back joined Napoli in 2017 following his former Coach Maurizio Sarri, but he has struggled under Carlo Ancelotti and the Azzurri are actively looking for new signings in his position.
