Reports are gathering steam that Rafa Benitez will sign a four-year contract with Napoli tonight.
His current deal is due to expire in June, but the crunch summit to decide on a renewal is taking place this evening.
Benitez’s agent Manuel Garcia Quilon flew in and met with President Aurelio De Laurentiis at the Hotel Vesuvio.
The rumours of an imminent agreement were boosted when two other men arrived later this evening to join negotiations.
They are Benitez’s lawyer Filippo Fusco and Napoli general manager and contracts expert Andrea Chiavelli.
It is suggested that Chiavelli is generally present whenever an important contract is signed.
Benitez himself is not at the meeting, because he is focused on preparing for tomorrow night’s Europa League semi-final against Dnipro.
It has been reported the Coach will sign a new four-year contract.
