'Why El Kaddouri chose Napoli'

Agent Mino Raiola explains why Omar El Kaddouri signed for Napoli after talks with Genoa, Parma and Juventus.

The 22-year-old Moroccan creative midfielder completed the transfer from Brescia in a co-ownership deal last night.

“I am happy with this move, as I think he can become a great player in a great club like Napoli,” Raiola told Sky Sport Italia.

“There was more than just an idea of doing the deal with Genoa, but the two Presidents did not reach an agreement.

“Omar is going to a top club and Napoli strongly wanted El Kaddouri as part of their project, which was important. We agreed terms very quickly.”

Raiola also represents Mario Balotelli and was asked whether the Manchester City hitman would ever come to Napoli.

“I don’t think that’s going to happen.”
