Italy right-back Giovanni Di Lorenzo has been linked with a move to Manchester United on the back of his Euro 2020 heroics with his country.

‘[President Aurelio] De Laurentiis spoke at the press conference explaining Napoli’s losses, and that all his players are transferable and that, if appropriate offers arrive, he will evaluate them himself.’ Mario Giuffredi told Radio Marte when asked about Di Lorenzo’s future.
‘If offers arrive, we are obliged to take them into consideration, also in the interest of Napoli, because it is the president himself who has put everyone on the market.
‘So, we feel we are on the market. If an appropriate offer arrives it’ll be discussed and considered.
‘But now it is newspaper talk. I read about Manchester United but now it is newspaper talk.’
