Napoli ‘dreaming of’ Madrid’s Benzema

Napoli are ‘dreaming of’ a deal to sign Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema this summer, according to a sensational report.

The Frenchman previously played for new Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti for two seasons at the Bernabeu and the Italian now wants to be reunited with the striker.

La Gazzetta dello Sport say the Naples-based club, who finished second behind Juventus in last year’s Serie A title race, can financially afford such a deal.

The club’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis reportedly wants to rival the deal Juve constructed to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid.
