'Chelsea offered €50m for Hysaj'

Elseid Hysaj’s agent claims Napoli stand to lose the right-back for nothing after they “could’ve taken €50m from Chelsea” last year.

Hysaj will leave Napoli by the end of the season, when his contract expires, and Mario Giuffredi revealed the Partenopei would be making a huge loss on his client. 

“Whatever happens with him, the outcome will be great,” he told Radio Punto Nuovo.

“If we leave, we’ll do what we had to do in the summer. If we don’t leave, Napoli will lose the player on a free transfer, but it’ll always work out for us.

“A year-and-a-half ago, Napoli could’ve taken €50m from Chelsea. If Hysaj stays at Napoli, the Neapolitan club risks losing the player for nothing.”

Giuffredi was then asked about a potential swap with Alessandro Florenzi, who is struggling for game time at Roma.

“I’m not aware of one. Hysaj likes Roma, but I don’t know anything about a swap. Roma need a full-back, Spinazzola’s a good player but often gets problems.

“Florenzi isn’t considered as full-back, but from what I see he’s not being given space in any other position.”
