Real Madrid are planning on losing 14 footballers this summer and Napoli are attentive to those on the way out. The Serie A side have called the offices in Chamartín and asked about James Rodriguez most recently but have their eye on the exit door at the Bernabéu.
Madrid have the final say, of course, but Napoli want to know what conditions they would accept to let the trio leave for Italy. Real Madrid have also put Nacho’s name on the table after the 29-year-old went through one of his most difficult seasons at the club.
Napoli have carried out a similar strategy before
Ancelotti wants to have a look at the players that might be available with Real Madrid looking to clean house during the summer. It’s not the first time Napoli have used this strategy when Real Madrid were looking to get rid of players. They signed Callejón, Albiol and the big signing, Higuaín when los Blancos were shopping players.
They are also interested in Llorente, who is wanted in the Premier League (Arsenal mostly) and Theo, who is receiving interest from the Bundesliga. His own agent confirmed that “it’s real, Napoli like him” recently.
