Geronimo Rulli has ruled out leaving Real Sociedad this summer despite confirming reports Napoli have attempted to sign him.

The 25-year-old Argentine shot-stopped had been linked with a move to the Italian giants to replace Pepe Reina, although Manchester City still have a buyback clause for the goalkeeper.

“I’m happy Napoli asked after me, as all Argentines know what Napoli and Diego Maradona represent,” Rulli is quoted as saying by Marca.

“But Real Sociedad is my home and I’m challenging for a place at the World Cup. If Argentina qualify, it’ll be a great opportunity for me. I have Russia 2018 in my mind.

“That means I need to play consistently for the Coach to see me in action. San Sebastian feels like home now and I’ve been living here for three years. I doubled the number of appearances I had with Estudiantes, am happy and hope to remain for a long time.”

Rulli played every minute for La Real in their La Liga campaign last year, helping them to a Europa League position next season.
