The future of Hercules striker David Trezeguet remains clouded.
Napoli had shown an interest in the former French international, but a Stadio San Paolo switch now seems unlikely.
“Both parties have to want a marriage,” Antonio Caliendo told Radio CRC on Friday afternoon.
“There is nothing new to report at the moment with regard to the negotiations and that doesn’t leave me very optimistic.
“Napoli would certainly be Trezeguet’s preferred choice because they have the environment which would allow the player to test himself at the top level.
“Two Brazilian clubs have made valid offers for him, but we didn’t consider them as we had other objectives.”
