It was a very wrong move on my part because if you contact a President in person, they make you pay more.“So much so that [De Laurentiis] told me they couldn’t sell him until they found a replacement. We also considered some foreign options, but Verdi was our man.“We took him in the last few minutes of the transfer window, making a major effort. In any case, I gave [Napoli] a €22m gift that I’ve never even given to my wife.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img
