Sao Paulo have made a move for Napoli forward Eduardo Vargas, but his wage demands are proving to be a stumbling block.
The Azzurri have accepted the Brazilian club’s offer to take the player on loan until June, but there is a problem.
The Italian outfit will only release him if Sao Paulo pay all of the 23-year-old’s wages during his time away.
Sao Paulo are reluctant to do that seeing as the Chilean international earns just under €1m a campaign in Italy.
Vargas joined the Azzurri a year ago from Universidad de Chile, but he’s failed to score a League goal in 19 appearances since then.
