Napoli on radar of departing Chelsea boss Benitez

Rafael Benitez is contemplating a possible move to Italian club Napoli according to his agent.

The Spanish tactician, who has finished up as interim boss of Chelsea, could replace Walter Mazzarri at the Stadio San Paolo this summer after he announced he would be leaving the Naples club.

"Napoli is a great club, so we won't rule out or confirm anything," said Benitez's representative Garcia Manuel Quillon.

"Benitez's future is not decided yet, so anything is possible. This year Chelsea was a very important test for him, to take a team that was not in good shape and bring them to win the Europa League.

"Napoli is a great club that has improved a lot, so we won't rule out or confirm anything. I cannot say any more on the issue.

"At the moment no directors have contacted us and I don't know whether or not (Napoli owner Aurelio) De Laurentiis will visit me over the next few days. I repeat, Benitez's future is uncertain. We'll see what happens."
