Napoli star could leave next summer

Paolo Cannavaro is considering a move away from the Stadio Sao Paolo if his lack of first-team involvement does not increase, according to Sportmediaset.

The player's agent, Enrico Fedele, has declared that the 32-year-old must reclaim his starting XI status under new boss Rafael Benitez if he is to remain in Naples.

"Paolo has gone from playing seven or eight games a month to a place on the bench," said Fedele.

"He is certainly not happy about that, but he is continuing to train and being an example to everyone".

Since rejoining the club from Parma in 2006, the brother of World Cup winner Fabio Cannavaro has established himself as a key player of the side and racked up over 270 appearances.

But the defender's first-team prospects have dwindled since the arrival of Benitez in May 2013, playing just three games under the Spaniard's leadership.

Fedele remains optimistic that his client's fortunes could take a turn for the best if given time, but hinted that Cannavaro could look to re-open talks with Serie 'A' rivals Inter Milan, who were interested in the signing the veteran during the off-season.

"I don't know if Mazzarri is interested right now," he added.

"There was something in the summer, but not anything significant.

"If things don't change at Napoli then we could discuss the possibility of a transfer."
