De Laurentiis on market moves

Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis has responded to fans’ questions on Twitter this evening.

The Partenopei chief was asked to comment on various topics by supporters, including the team’s transfer activity.

“We have completed a deal for Duvan Zapata,” he said via his official Twitter account. “We signed him from Estudiantes.

“The player is coming to Naples.

“Matri? There was a mere exchange of views with [Juventus CEO Beppe] Marrota and I three weeks ago.

“My doubts about Matri were his age, not his ability – that’s why I focused on Zapata.

“Is our market closed now? We’ll see.

“Something might be missing from our team, but at the moment it is too early to tell.

“Will Zuniga renew? Today Zuniga is a Napoli player.

“Our best buy? That would be Benitez.”

De Laurentiis also revealed via the social network that the Stadio San Paolo will undergo structural work soon. It is not clear however, whether that is to increase the ground's capacity or not.
