Agent Claims Cagliari Star Will Leave in January amid Napoli Links

Nahitan Nandez ended up staying put in the summer despite drawing interest from multiple teams. Leeds United appeared in the lead early on. Inter swooped in after selling Achraf Hakimi. However, nobody managed to come to terms with Cagliari. The Uruguayan midfielder has a €36M release clause. The Sardinian club reportedly asked for at least €30M to sell him.

His agent has resumed pressing his team: “President Tommaso Giulini promised me and the player that he will do everything possible to arrange a move in January. Nandez wants to win a trophy and play in the Champions League. The chairman gave us his word.”

His representative Pablo Bentancur spoke to CalcioNapoli24 TV: “He was the most expensive player in the history of Cagliari. We know there has been a big crisis in football. I think he will transfer for a sum inferior to his release clause. The executive told Nandez yesterday that he would lower the price tag and let him go. Two or three teams are after him for the Winter window.”

“Napoli are among the suitors. Director Cristiano Giuntoli has been a big fan of him for years. However, the main problem is economic. The Cagliari owner understood the situation. We hope something could happen in January, maybe with the Partenopei.”

Nandez has been one of the few bright spots for Cagliari at the start of the season. The Sardinians have yet to win a game and have already gone through a coaching change. They are in penultimate position in the standings.
