Carlo Ancelotti insists PSG target Allan will stay with Napoli

Carlo Ancelotti has played down rumours of his midfielder Allan joining Paris Saint-Germain during the January window. The Brazilian was left out of Napoli’s squad in their goalless draw with AC Milan on Saturday, which fueled speculations on his future.

However, Ancelotti is determined to keep the holding midfielder at Napoli. “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,” head coach Ancelotti told Sky Sport Italia. It was believed PSG were prepared to bid €100m for Allan.

“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.” Allan, who joined Napoli in 2015 from Udinese, has made 25 appearances for Napoli this season.
