Real Madrid tracking Napoli's Christian Maggio

Napoli winger Christian Maggio is being watched with interest by Real Madrid according to his agent. The 26-year-old winger was signed by Napoli from Sampdoria last summer and has enjoyed a brilliant first half of the season, with his form leading to a national team call-up.

Massimo Briaschi, Maggio's agent, revealed to Italian station Radio Kiss Kiss that the Spanish champions are aware of his great form.

"I know specifically that a few scouts came to Naples to look at other players, but were struck by Maggio's quality," Briaschi said.

"The Real Madrid emissaries were very impressed by Christian. I know that this situation exists and there is definite interest.

"However, the player is settled at Napoli and the club is happy to have him in the squad."
