There are reports Napoli offered Diego Simeone a contract before he signed a renewal with Atletico Madrid.
The Coach put pen to paper on a new deal until June 2020.
Sky Sport Italia claim Napoli had proposed a move to the Stadio San Paolo to replace Rafa Benitez, whose contract is up at the end of this season.
The wages on offer were believed to be €3.5m per year, but Simeone declined.
It would’ve been a return to Serie A for the Argentine, who spent much of his playing career in Italy with Lazio and Inter.
He was also the Coach of Catania.
