Motta not on Napoli radar

The agent of Thiago Motta has cooled speculation that Napoli are interested in the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder.

“There is absolutely no truth in it,” Alessandro Canovi told Napoli Calcio Live. “I know the reality of Napoli, but there has not even been a conversation about it.

“We also have to consider that a player like Thiago would not fit into the plans of certain clubs who have particular salary parameters.

“Thiago Motta is happy in Paris and, although he still hasn’t signed a new contract, the rumours which are circulating are without foundation.”

The 31-year-old Italian international joined the French capital outfit in January 2012 from Inter for a fee believed to be in the region of €10m.
