Napoli president De Laurentiis says deal in place for Lille fullback Malcuit

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis says a deal is in place for Lille fullback Kevin Malcuit.

De Laurentiis has confirmed the player's signing is close.

“True! He'll arrive on a permanent transfer, €12m plus bonuses for a total of €13m.

“As for Guillermo Ochoa, we were with his agents and I hope for arrivals, but there's been a lot to do in the past two days because Napoli is in my heart and now I have to rebuild Bari without even seeing… Bari will never take time from Napoli though."

“I won't sell, [Marek] Hamsik has stayed. [Kalidou] Koulibaly, who is the best in his role, has renewed with us for the next five years.

“We said no to a €90m offer for him, there were three teams ready to take him.

“Let's enjoy this team they work for you and are ready to give everything to win. Without cheating though, if I come second because there's someone who cheats, I stay second. I respect the rules."
