Torino defender Alessandro Buongiorno has decided to join Antonio Conte’s Napoli. Inter Milan was also interested in the defender.

Buongiorno transfer saga

According to Football Italia, many elite Italian clubs were interested in Alessandro Buongiorno. Recently the Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentes sacked former head coach Francesco Calzani. In this season, they have appointed Antonio Conte as the new head coach of Napoli.

Although the arrival of Conte has created uncertainty about the future of Victor Oshimhen, Lobotka, and Kvaratskhelia, the Italian manager is convincing other rising stars to join him in Naples.

Torino wanted to keep him at the club, but it seems that Alessandro Buongiorno is keen to join Antonio Conte’s Napoli. According to various sources, it is being said that the Italian manager played a big role in this transfer move because he perfectly pitched his project to the young defender.

It is being said that Napoli have agreed to sign young Italian defender Alessandro Buongiorno for €35m. On top of that, Torino will receive €5m as a signing bonus. The Italian giant is ready to offer him a three-year contract that will contain a €70m release clause. This release clause will certainly keep him untouchable for three years. Last time, he rejected Atalanta and decided to stay at Torino.

Why does Napoli need Buongiorno?

Recently Napoli have sold their colossus defender Kim Min Jae to Bayern Munich. He left a void in their defensive line. That is why they need a commanding center half who can protect the backline. Buongiorno is certainly a perfect solution for Napoli.

Recently Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielenski has joined Inter Milan. So, they need more players to stabilize the squad. Antonio Conte is trying to build a new team at the heart of Naples. It is certain that Buongiorno is going to be an integrated part of the team. The new Napoli manager is certainly an experienced one because he has won English Premier League, Serie A title, UEFA cup as a manager. On top of that the fans also believe that Antonio Conte can certainly improve Napoli’s performance.

On this Thursday Torino President Cairo said,

“Buongiorno is evidently a player who attracts great interest and is being followed by many teams. I haven’t heard from him since he went to Germany [for EURO 2024] if not for motivational messages. Obviously, I want to talk to him before making any decision. I want to know what he thinks. This is what happened last year when, in the end, we decided to keep him. I am glad there is interest, but before making any decision, I want to sit down and listen to what he has to say.”

But at this moment, Torino have agreed to sell the player to Napoli.
