CorSport: Sale most likely outcome for Napoli star Insigne – €30m price set, Milan observant

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are listed as one of the potential solutions for Lorenzo Insigne as his future with Napoli is far from certain, according to a report.

After being one of the protagonists at Euro 2020 with Italy, Insigne is now enjoying a well-earned holiday, but in the meantime his future continues to dominate the newspaper headlines as he has a contract expiring in June 2022, which must be re-discussed as soon as possible.

According to il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanLive), the Azzurri number 10 is not close to an agreement. The winger would like a new contract with an improved salary, even though he gets €5m net per season at the moment, but Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis wants him to renew at a lower figure.

The newspaper talks about three future solutions for Insigne, and the first is obviously a renewal at figures that makes everyone happy, so the 29-year-old can continue his story in Naples. This solution seems the most complicated though, due to the substantial differences between offer and demand.

The second option is that Insigne would stay in Naples for another season, but then would leave on a free transfer in 2022. The Partenopei are not keen on that, so the third solution is the sale of their captain for around €30m.

Milan are a club that could seriously inquire about Insigne, both as a summer coup or to reserve him ahead of next season. However, Lazio and some English clubs are keen, as per the report.
