Politano Would Consider Napoli Exit amid Valencia Links

Italy winger Matteo Politano put in a monumental performance to oust Hungary by a 2-1 scoreline, playing a key part as he exceptionally assisted Lorenzo Pellegrini for the winning goal. Amid the forward’s international exploits, doubts are being cast on his future at Napoli after his agent revealed that the player no longer feels the trust to stay put.

Mario Giuffredi commented on the future of his client in an exclusive interview with Radio Marte (via Calciomercato), citing that any offer from outside clubs would be considered.

“We had a conversation with Spalletti and Giuntoli because he no longer feels the trust he had before. If any offers arrive, Politano would consider them. If they do not arrive, he will stay in Naples and will do it with the right mind.”

When quizzed about Politano’s future, perhaps abroad at Gennaro Gattuso’s future club Valencia, Giuffredi didn’t shy away from stating that it is a possibility.

“Gattuso admires him, and we will certainly consider the destination. But he could also stay in Italy or move somewhere abroad. It must be worth it.”

Politano has 18 goals from 109 appearances in the Partenopei blue, before which he starred for Inter, Sassuolo, Pescara and Perugia. He has never experienced football outside Italy, and Valencia might just be his first foreign adventure under his ex-coach.

Perhaps coincidentally, Napoli are reportedly getting closer to coming to terms with Federico Bernardeschi. The former Juventus winger, who is available on a free, is leaning toward accepting their four-year contract proposal, SportMediaset informs.
