Damiao snubs Juve for Napoli

Brazilian talent Leandro Damiao admits he’d “love to play in Serie A,” but warns Juventus he would prefer to join Napoli.

The Internacional striker has been heavily linked with Juve in recent months and told the Corriere dello Sport he’s looking forward to playing in Italy.

“Serie A is a League that I really like and I’d love to play in it,” said Damiao.

“I’d especially be happy to come to Italy because my two favourite centre-forwards in the world play there: Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani.

“Napoli play very entertaining football and I really appreciate the way Walter Mazzarri’s team approaches the sport. It would be spectacular to partner Cavani.

“I am convinced Milan will win the Scudetto. Inter? They’re going through a tough time, but I’m sure next season they’ll be fighting for the title again.”
