GRANADA, Gonalons' agent: "He was very close to join Napoli"

Playing for Granada since 2019/20, and bought back from AS Roma six months ago, on a 4 million euros transfer fee, French deep-lying midfielder Maxime Gonalons (turning 32 on March 10), facing Napoli in upcoming EL clash, stated: "When Benitez was training Partenopei, he got really close to join in. The negotiations were in an advanced state, but Maxime, who was very young at the time, chose otherwise. He never even played in Naples, in what currently is Maradona Stadium, and he's aware of how good Napoli are as a team. However, he thinks Granada can play their cards right, even with two forwards off out of injury".
