Napoli preparing Fabio Coentrao bid


Fresh from confirming the signing of Gonzalo Higuain, Seria A side may back back in contact with Real Madrid soon to discuss the transfer of left back Fabio Coentrao.

La Gazetta Dello Sport in Italy has reported Rafa Benitez’s new club want to make the Portuguese international their fourth purchase from the Santiago Bernabeu this summer.

The Naples-based side have already secured the signatures of Jose Callejon, Raul Abliol and Higuain.

Coentrao has been linked with a move away from the Spanish capital, and was believed to be keen on a switch back to his former club Benfica. Jose Mourinho, now in charge of Premier League side Chelsea was also keen to take the defender to Stamford Bridge.

But in Napoli those clubs could face stiff competition, as the Italians are flush with cash having sold star striker Edison Cavani to PSG.
