Italian football star and former Napoli coach Andrea Agostinelli believes that Napoli should not consider signing Cristiano Ronaldo for many reasons.
Press reports from Italy indicate that Ronaldo’s agent, Georgi Mendes, offered his client again to the Italian South team, and Mendes’ last trick was to offer Napoli a reciprocal deal, according to which Ronaldo would move to the South team in exchange for the departure of Nigerian Victor Osimhen, Napoli’s player, to United.
But it seems that this suggestion is very far from happening, with Napoli currently unwilling to sign Ronaldo due to his high salary.
Agustinelli does not favor a deal of this kind for Napoli, and about this, he told Radio “TMW”: “I want to know what Spalletti himself thinks about it, having built a good competitive team, will he sacrifice it for Ronaldo?”
He added: “Ronaldo might be able to score goals, but he does it only for himself, why would you bring trouble to your house?”
Agustinelli believes that Spalletti himself is definitely against the idea of contracting Ronaldo, saying: “Spalletti now has good offensive options. If the Portuguese arrives, he will undoubtedly play, but I am sure that Spalletti does not even want him.”
And he added: “If you have 100 million euros, you have to spend it in the best possible way, whatever the names are, and then organize your situations correctly, but it is not a requirement that you bring Cristiano Ronaldo with it!”
