thumbnail Hello,

Cannavaro is clubless it seems...

Italy defender Fabio Cannavaro has said he will be heading to the World Cup as a clubless player as neither Juventus nor Napoli seem interested in his services.

Cannavaro has missed the chance to extend his deal with the Bianconeri. When he signed from Real Madrid last year he had the option to extend, but that deadline has passed.

And with Napoli curbing their interest, the Azzurri captain has no clue as to where he will be playing next season.

"I am a captain without a contract," Cannavaro told the press at la Nazionale's training camp in Sestriere.

"The option to extend my deal with Juventus has expired. I want Napoli, but they don't want me."

Despite his ties with Juventus appearing over, the Italian has defended the club from Marco Materazzi's jibes.

The Inter man displayed a provocative shirt after they won the Champions League on Saturday with strong words aimed at Juventus.

"Do you want this [Champions League] back as well?" read the shirt in reference to Juve's request for the 2006 Serie A title to be revoked from Inter.

Cannavaro said: "Materazzi can wear many shirts, but I have the [Scudetto] medals at home."
