Napoli is facing their biggest crisis perhaps in a decade, with De Laurentiis clashing with the players and Carlo Ancelotti.

After a fallout with the owner, consequences could be huge for Napoli players.

A string of poor results forced De Laurentiis to send the team in a seven-day retreat.

Some of them didn’t respect that after the Salzburg draw, causing fury from the owner.

Mertens and Callejon could be the collateral damage of the fallout.

According to Sky Sport, the duo are almost certain to leave the club in the summer after the failed negotiations.

Mertens expressed his desire to play in China for astronomic wages recently. Callejon could join him, following Hamsik’s footsteps.

However, Inter could complicate things, as Nerazurri expressed the desire to bring in Mertens for free in the summer.

Whatever happens, Napoli will go through some major changes this summer.
