Napoli stand to lose Elseid Hysaj for nothing, but they could have recevied £43million for the right-back last summer.
The Albanian is set to leave the Serie A club when his contract expires at the end of the season.
Chelsea have been revealed as the club who were in for the 25-year-old defender, according to his agent Mario Giuffredi.
And now Napoli look set to make a huge loss on Hysaj.
‘Whatever happens with him, the outcome will be great,’ he told Radio Punto Nuovo.
‘If we leave, we’ll do what we had to do in the summer. If we don’t leave, Napoli will lose the player on a free transfer, but it’ll always work out for us.
‘A year-and-a-half ago, Napoli could’ve taken €50m from Chelsea. If Hysaj stays at Napoli, the Neapolitan club risks losing the player for nothing.’
