Thiago Motta has rejected De Laurentiis’ proposal, according to what filters from Naples. Or rather: he chose to bet on Bologna and therefore he personally took steps to eliminate his name from the list relating to the blue bench. The president met Thiago in Rome, chatted, recorded and then continued what at this stage can still be defined as a tour of reconnaissance. Also not definitive, waiting for that Vincenzo Italiancertainly an authoritative candidate considering DeLa’s esteem, concludes his prestigious and delicate commitments with Fiorentina: the Conference final in Prague is scheduled for Wednesday and then we’ll see.
In the meantime, however, windows and doors continue to be opened and closed: after Luis Enrique, even the Sergio Conceiçao’s quotations are in sharp decline. Let’s say that the Portuguese coach, not exactly a convinced director of the coveted 4-3-3, one of the fundamental parameters of the search, can now be considered out of the list. Him like Lucho, but not like Julian. Nagelsmann: De Laurentiis spoke again with Germancalled him, but Bayern’s assessment to release him from the contract until 2026 is still high (about ten million).
De Laurentiis’ phone call to Nagelsmann
And then, the thousand chapters of the novel of the blue bench: yesterday in Castel Volturno thelast hug between De Laurentiis and Spalletti, in a few hours the protagonist of his last day as coach of the Italian champions, but the president has obviously been concentrated on dealing with the succession for a while: names come and go, tracks start and finish in a flash and while others are frozen. Or heated: it is the case of Julian Nagelsman, 35 years old, returning from the end of the experience with Bayern – champion of Germany after his exemption – but under contract until 2026 with the Bavarians. Who, having invested around twenty million to hang him from Leipzig in 2021, intend to at least partially recover from the investment. DeLa called him a few days ago, you spoke with him again about the possibility of coaching Napoli, and perhaps the excellent relations with Rummenigge, who has just returned to the club, could favor his exit. Complex track, however: Nagelsmann asked for time. Even him.
De Laurentiis between Thiago Motta and Italian
Instead, the president met with Thiago Motta, spoke live in Rome, but the story didn’t take off: Thiago thanked and declined, Bologna is his priority. Even the Italian, at this stage, inevitably has a priority that excludes any other thought: the Conference League final against West Ham, scheduled for Wednesday in Prague. Once the international adventure and the season are over, we’ll see.
Naples market stopped
The transfer market is at a standstill right now: just a consequence of the vacatio on the bench, for heaven’s sake. Napoli has its plans, its goals, but unlike in the past, De Laurentiis has preferred not to buy, not to discard or even promote without the coach’s approval for a few years now. A choice. Right. Instead, Kim’s future does not depend on anyone: in his contract there is a release clause that can be activated from 1 to 15 July.
