Agent: I urged Napoli to sign Pavard

Agent Francesco Di Frisco has revealed he tried to place Bayern Munich signing Benjamin Pavard at Napoli.

The defender has just agreed to leave Stuttgart for Bayern this summer.

“Did I try to take Pavard to Naples? We talked a lot and tried, but it wasn't easy," Di Frisco told Radio CRC.

“Even Stuttgart didn't know until a week ago that he had accepted a contract from Bayern Munich.

“There was no offer from Napoli, but they liked him. How hard did Napoli try for him? Interest was there, both from the club and their scouts.

“It was a name that Napoli verified immediately. Full-back or central defender? He's normally a central defender plays as a full-back for his national team.

“'Yes' to Bayern but not a 'no' to Napoli? It's dfficult to say. Ultimately, an offer never came from Napoli, although they conducted themselves very well, as did the lad."
