In the prosecutors’ sights the purchase of the Nigerian striker from Lille, with the counterparts of four players including the defender currently at Entella
The Prosecutor of Naples continues its line of investigation into capital gains. The Guardia di Finanza, on a mandate from the Neapolitan prosecutor’s office, carried out a search of the headquarters of Turris, the Serie C team from Torre del Greco. It acquired the purchase and sale contracts of the footballer Claudio Manzi. The defender, currently at Entella, had returned to the acquisition of center forward Victor Osimhen from Lille.
Manzi was one of the four players – together with the young Luigi Liguori, Ciro Palmieri and the goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis, already a professional – that Napoli had included in 2020 as a counterpart to the French club to reach a total valuation of 71 million euros. Napoli, like all the other clubs, was acquitted of the sporting inquiry. Manzi, valued at 4 million, had never gone to France: contracts signed in Castel Volturno, home of Napoli, and then immediately loaned to Fermana. The following year, Lille released him. Manzi signed for Turris for free. Who in January sold him to Virtus Entella for a figure of around 120,000 euros, a valuation far from the 4 million entered in the budget by Napoli.
