Napoli reportedly overtakes Milan in the race for Matija Popovic, following a stall in negotiations with the Serie A heavyweights. This is according to respected Italian football journalist Gianluca Di Marzio. The Naples-based outfit is understood to be working against fierce competition from the likes of Bayern Munich and Porto.
There is the possibility of a joint operation involving a loan agreement with Frosinone. The details of this potential deal have not been made clear yet.
In recent weeks, the player seemed close to joining Milan. However, the negotiations with the ‘Rossoneri’ suddenly hit a daunting wall.
A former Partizan player, young talent Popovic may be tempted by Juventus too. The Juventus management, under close punishment of Giuntoli’s new recruitment strategy is known for keeping a keen eye on emerging talent.
