Santana happy with Napoli switch

Fiorentina winger Mario Alberto Santana is looking forward to playing for Napoli next season.

The midfielder is on his way to the San Paolo on a free transfer, with a three-year deal already agreed.

"I'm delighted to be joining Napoli," the Argentine told Il Mattino. "There was initial contact in January, but then nothing came of it.

"I agreed to the move and I just can't wait to start my new adventure in Azzurro. I'm already dreaming of the Champions League."

The South American, 29, will reportedly earn €900,000 a campaign at the San Paolo. That figure may rise if bonus clauses are activated.
