Chivu on Napoli radar

Napoli will make an effort to sign Cristian Chivu once his Inter deal expires at the end of the current season.

The Romanian has yet to be offered a new contract by the Nerazzurri which suggests that a San Siro exit is on the horizon.

The defender’s agent has claimed that sides such as Real Madrid and Manchester City are keen, but the Azzurri could be an option seeing as he will be available on a Bosman free transfer.

The Corriere dello Sport is today suggesting that the former Ajax and Roma man will be offered a San Paolo contract.

Chivu has mainly been used as a left-back during his Inter career rather than in his preferred centre-back position.

Napoli could be an attractive playing possibility for the 31-year-old seeing as boss Walter Mazzarri uses a three-man defence.
