Napoli Begins Castel di Sangro Retreat as ADL Seeks to Unlock the Transfer Market

Napoli Begins Castel di Sangro Retreat as ADL Seeks to Unlock the Transfer Market

Napoli, one of Italy’s top football clubs, is all set to kickstart its preseason preparations with a retreat in the picturesque town of Castel di Sangro. Under the guidance of their coach, Rudi Garcia, the team will spend the next few weeks honing their skills and building their physical stamina until August 12th. This retreat is expected to witness a record number of participants, much like the previous one in Dimaro. Napoli will also face four international friendly matches in order to achieve peak physical fitness before their first clash against Frosinone in the upcoming season.

During this retreat, Coach Rudi Garcia aims to focus on refining tactical details, hence several closed training sessions have been scheduled to facilitate in-depth strategic work. The club recognizes the importance of strong defensive players and is actively working to secure a suitable replacement for Kim, who recently left the team. Alongside the familiar names of Kevin Danso and Max Kilman, Napoli is also negotiating with Konstantinos Mavropanos, a talented defender from Stuttgart born in 1997. Mavropanos, whose contract expires on June 30th, 2027, presents an attractive option for Napoli due to his comparatively lower valuation of around €20 million, as compared to the highly-priced central defenders from Lens and Wolverhampton. However, negotiations between the clubs are currently deadlocked.

In addition to defensive reinforcements, Napoli is also focused on securing the future of their top scorer, Osimhen. The club seems to be closing in on a renewal deal with the talented striker. Reports suggest that Napoli has shown willingness to offer a contract surpassing the initial offer of €7 million per season and is further considering the inclusion of performance-based bonuses. The intention is to increase Osimhen’s release clause to approximately €140 million. This compromise between Napoli president De Laurentiis, who initially demanded a release clause of €200 million, and the player’s representatives, who were aiming for a release clause of around €100 million, could soon come to fruition.

As the retreat commences, Napoli’s supporters eagerly await positive developments in both the transfer market and the negotiations with Osimhen. With potential defensive arrivals and a contract extension for their leading goal-scorer, the team aims to bolster its squad and make a strong start to the upcoming season. The rigorous training sessions at Castel di Sangro will undoubtedly play a crucial role in shaping Napoli’s performance, as they strive for success both domestically and on the international stage.
