Hold on to arithmetic. It is the only reason to feel alive and to spread among the people that last glimmer of optimism that only the numbers still hold on their feet. To believe it, however, are really few, just those who do not accept the surrender even before the evidence. Yes, not even in the face of a Naples that has been overwhelmed by Fiorentina, who has not been able to react and, above all, has shown that it no longer has any. Now, there are some pieces to put back together.
There is a cycle that is approaching, sadly, to its conclusion. Yes, all right, Napoli has been able to excite the world of football with its spectacular and concrete game; Maurizio Sarri would have wanted his consecration to take place with the conquest of the championship but, in the end, he too will have to surrender to the excessive power of Juventus. And after three years, it will be difficult to start from the same project. So, the president needs to reschedule, starting right from the coach. meeting - It is not excluded that the four points of separation from the leaders and the concrete possibility that Juventus wins its seventh consecutive Scudetto induce De Laurentiis to convoke their coach to define the position. Sarri has a contract until 2021, but in the agreement there is a rescission clause of 8 million euro, against a penalty of 500 thousand euro if the company interrupts the agreement prematurely.Bet on your favourite team with our premium olbg tips.
To stay, Sarri has asked for precise guarantees on the economic question, wants an increase in salary from the current 2 to 4 million euros per season, while De Laurentiis does not want to go beyond 3.5 million. Moreover, the technician will demand that an important strengthening campaign be carried out to make Naples more competitive both in Italy and in Europe. The impression is that the parties will hardly agree. Meanwhile, De Laurentiis is waiting to meet the coach to agree on the inside or outside. Also because he will have to choose, eventually, the substitute: he really likes Giampaolo as well as Simone Inzaghi.
There is a market of surprises for Naples. It seems certain the sale of a big between Koulibaly (60 million) or Jorginho (50 million), while Mertens can take advantage of the clause (28 million) to go play elsewhere. In short, there will not be a real revolution, but something will change because some players may no longer have the necessary motivations after a three-year job that has not brought any success except compliments for the quality of the game.
