Cannavaro hints at Napoli return

Wednesday, December 24, 2008

Italy defender Fabio Cannavaro has suggested he could return to Napoli after admitting he is in no hurry to sort out his future at Real Madrid.

Cannavaro has been heavily linked with a return to his hometown club as the Neapolitan defender is out of contract with the Spanish giants at the end of the season and has yet to begin talks over a new deal.

But while he denied having spoken to anyone at the club about a move, he admitted a transfer away from the Spanish capital in the near future was a possibility.

He said: "I know that my contract will expire, but there is no hurry.

"It is up to Real, if they are not willing to renew, then I will start weighing up other offers, but only after speaking with them, as our rapport is excellent.

"Nonetheless, if I were to return to Italy, I would still be glad, because I have lived a wonderful experience here, at a wonderful club. But after all, Italy is my home!

"In early January we'll assess the intentions of Real, and then act accordingly, even considering bids from other clubs.

"Pierpaolo Marino - Napoli general director - and I sat down together, but we didn't talk about football.

"The club - Napoli - has focused on young people, and the results are good, even if the team is proving to have some problems lately away from home, while at the San Paolo they are doing extraordinary things.

"Can they reach the Champions League? Perhaps."
