Napoli striker would never play for Juventus

Napoli frontman Lorenzo Insigne say he would never play for Juventus even if they offered him three times the money he earns now at Napoli.

Insigne is regarded as being one of the brightest stars in the Italian League after playing on loan for Foggia and Pescara.

The 22-year-old attacker featured often playing 37 out of 38 league matches last year, and is determined to stay at Napoli and that Juventus have no chance of luring him to Turin.

“I would not play with them even if they tripled my salary,” he told la Repubblica of Juve. “I have a contract until 2017, I’m living a dream playing in Naples just now … though I could evaluate an experience abroad.”

Rafa Benitez is the man in charge now in Napoli, and is already making his mark on the club after selling striker Edinson Cavani to OSG he has brought in two players from Real Madrid  Raul Albiol and Jose Callejon as well as Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina while waiting on news as to whether Gonzalo Higuain will join the Partenopei.

Insigne says: “I lacked a little in order to win but now I hope to manage it, especially with Napoli,” he continued. “The Scudetto is no longer prohibited, but no predictions. We will certainly fight with everyone.

“Cavani wanted the ball only for himself. Edi gave us so much and he will be missed. I hope he comes to be replaced with another strong forward but with different characteristics.

“The fans don’t put pressure on me. It doesn’t weigh on me to be a Neopolitan in Napoli. I think only of the good of the team.

“The balance of last season was positive, even if I felt a little sacrificed, but I thank Mazzarri. Benitez will help the system, we attackers will be closer to the goal and I will aim for 15 goals.

“He is a coach of international experience. He makes no distinction between the youngsters and the more experienced.”
