Veteran Italy defender Fabio Cannavaro is keen on a summer return to home town club Napoli, as he prepares to leave Juventus for a second time.
The 36-year-old is out of contract with Juve at the end of the season and his agent, Enrico Fedele, doesn't expect Cannavaro to be handed a new deal.
He told Napolimagazine.com: "Juventus have an option until the end of April to extend, but I think there will be a general revolution in the squad.
"It's hardly a surprise revelation that Cannavaro would love a return to Napoli. The welcome he was given by the San Paolo crowd a few weeks ago was an important sign.
"Fabio's contract expires in June, but this has been a cursed year for the team.
"Yet if you look at the newspaper reviews of individual performances, you'll find that Cannavaro was inferior only to Giorgio Chiellini."
