According to Insigne’s agent, Milan wanted to sign the forward prior to his contract extension with Napoli.
On Saturday it was announced that after months of negotiations, Lorenzo Insigne had put pen to paper on a new contract with his beloved club Napoli.
The Italian’s new contract is valid until 2022, ending any rumours of a potential departure from Partenopei Gli Azzurri.
