Napoli closing in on appointment of Juventus director Giovanni Manna


Napoli are very close to reaching an agreement for Juventus sporting director Giovanni Manna, having already secured a verbal agreement.

According to Sky Sport Italia’s  Gianluca di Marzio, Manna’s situation at Juventus has drawn interest from Napoli, with indications pointing towards an imminent move. The existence of a verbal agreement between Napoli and Manna underscores the club’s proactive approach under the stewardship of CEO Aurelio de Laurentiis, who is keen on shaping the team’s future direction.

Reports indicate that Manna has expressed his willingness to join Napoli, aligning with the club’s vision for the upcoming season. Napoli are actively exploring potential managerial options, with Fiorentina’s Vincenzo Italiano emerging as the frontrunner for the coveted position.

With an eye towards the future, Napoli aim to commence the next season under the leadership of Manna and Italiano in the hopes of positioning the club for success. Speculation suggests that Italiano’s departure from Fiorentina at the end of the current campaign further solidifies Napoli’s pursuit.

While Italiano leads the pack, other notable candidates such as Raffaele Palladino and former Tottenham and Inter manager Antonio Conte remain linked with the managerial role.
