Napoli Coach Carlo Ancelotti confirmed Paris Saint-Germain are in negotiations with the club to sign Brazilian midfielder Allan.

PSG are in search for a replacement for Marco Veratti due to injury but Ancelotti is adamant the hard-tackling midfielder will remain at the club despite a huge offer.

It’s reported on Football Italia and several Italian papers this morning that the proposal is worth €60m, but Napoli are holding out for €100m.

However, many believe that at €80m it could be a done deal and negotiations are continuing.

There was an intriguing revelation from Ancelotti speaking to the press after last night’s stalemate with Milan.

“I won’t get into negotiations that are ongoing. As far as I am concerned, the matter is over, Allan will remain our player and we never intended to sell if not for something extraordinary.

“The player has been contacted, even though that shouldn’t happen, and we listened to his requests, after which nothing happened. He will stay with us and play on Tuesday.”

Napoli could only settle for a barren draw against Milan in a keenly contested affair that saw the dismissal of Fabian Ruiz and Ancelotti.
