Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti says midfielder Allan, who is a target for Paris Saint-Germain, will not be leaving the club this winter.
The Brazil-born midfielder was dropped for Saturday’s draw against AC Milan with his future up in the air, but Ancelotti said after the match that the club had spoken with Allan and decided that they will not be selling the 28-year-old – and hit out at PSG for their attempt to sign his player.
Allan will return for Napoli’s Coppa Italia quarter-final tie, also against Milan, on Tuesday.
“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,” Ancelotti said.
“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.”
