Osasuna want €9m for Berenguer

Osasuna have confirmed highly-rated winger Alex Berenguer is wanted by Napoli but insist the Italians must come ‘close’ to his €9m release clause.

The 22-year-old is widely expected to leave El Sadar this summer following the club’s relegation from La Liga after just one season while Los Rojillos president Luis Sabalza has left the door open if the price is right.

“I have not had direct contact with Napoli, but only with some intermediaries and agents,” Sabalza told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

“There is a €9m release clause, but if someone offers close to that, then I will evaluate and we can negotiate that, but so far nothing has arrived.

“It’s true that Athletic Bilbao made an offer worth €4m plus €1m bonuses, but we rejected it. If Napoli were to propose €7m plus bonuses, then we could certainly talk it over.

“We have not set any deadline and the player has said he’s happy to stay with us, but we’ll see what happens.”
