Benitez denies Diego Lopez rumour

Napoli boss Rafa Benitez has claimed that his side are not interested in signing Real Madrid goalkeeper Diego Lopez.

The Italian side have been strongly linked with the Blancos shot-stopper, after it emerged that the European champions would sign Keylor Navas from Levante.

But the Spanish tactician has insisted that his team haven’t even enquired about the former Sevilla man.

“We have been linked with many names, but, a very high percentage are not real,” he told Marca.

“I heard: ‘Napoli will sign Diego Lopez, they have an agreement.’ In no time have we have raised [an enquiry].”
