Football-2 January 2019 08:12 GMT
Napoli sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli has revealed the biggest regret in his transfer dealings was the missed chance to sign then Lyon midfielder Corentin Tolisso but was pleased in the Fabian Ruiz move.
On Fabian Ruiz move from Betis: We wanted to get it already in January, but it was not possible. But we managed to wrest a promise from the player and the attorney. When Ancelotti arrived, he asked us. But strangely he was the only player we had already locked, a strange and pleasant coincidence. ” Cristiano Giuntoli, the ds of Naples.
” The negotiation for the substitute of Higuain? I brought Milik to Capri. He came from Ajax and I wanted to amaze him with the excuse that there was work in progress. Regret? We had closed for Tolisso who was to perform only medical visits, but Lyon that year passed the preliminary Champions League and the player preferred to stay in France. Too bad, then the following year he went to Bayern Munich “. He was quoted by Corriere Dello Sport
