Official: Raul Albiol joins Napoli

It is now official that Raul Albiol signed a four-year contract with Napoli, completing his transfer from Real Madrid.

The 27-year-old centre-back had already been in agreement for some time, but the news was only confirmed this morning.

Los Blancos paid €15m to take Albiol from Valencia in 2009, but it’s believed Napoli have taken him for around €12m.

Albiol underwent a medical in Naples this week and put pen to paper on a four-year contract today.

He is the second Real Madrid player to join the Partenopei this summer after Jose Callejon, while there are reports that there’s also a €35m deal for Gonzalo Higuain.
