The agent of Fabiano Santacroce has cooled talk of a move to Real Madrid for the Napoli defender.

Real scouts were in the stands to check on the young Italy prospect on the weekend after a recommendation was made to Madrid sports chief Pedja Mijatovic by Fabio Cannavaro.

Antonio Dell'Aglio, Santacroce's agent, said: "Santacroce is happy in Naples. He is perfectly integrated into the group and is happy in the city as well. He does not want to leave and for any transfer Real must talk to Napoli since Fabiano still has a long contract with the Azzurri."
