Meret wants Napoli reassurance

Alex Meret reportedly rejected a new contract from Napoli, as he wants to be sure he’ll be first choice ahead of David Ospina next season.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the shot-stopper was made the proposal because his current deal is due to expire in June 2023.

However, Meret refused to sign until he had some sort of reassurance that he’ll not become just an understudy to Colombia international Ospina.

Meret or Sirigu for Milan?

Donnarumma’s current deal with the Rossoneri expires next summer, and it isn’t certain that the stopper will stay with his boyhood club.

That is because Donnarumma’s agent, Mino Raiola, has been sceptical about the Milan project and has been at times critical of the Elliott Management group who own the club.

Napoli not dead yet

The rugged performance to hold out at Anfield was not that of a team in crisis, argues Giancarlo Rinaldi, but consistency has always been Napoli’s problem.

They were queueing up to deliver the last rites before this match. It was, we were told, the end of an era for this squad, its stars and probably its coach. But, at what appeared their darkest hour, Napoli showed reserves of character and quality which suggested their demise might not be as imminent as some had supposed. There’s life in the old club yet.
