Genoa director reveals Domenico Criscito still on course for Napoli switch despite PSG speculation

Sporting director says a move to Paris Saint-Germain is unlikely as they have an accord with the Italian outfit for a joint-ownership deal which the defender is eager to complete
Genoa director of sport Stefano Capozucca has denied claims French side Paris Saint-Germain were ready to make a last ditch bid for Napoli-bound Domenico Criscito.

Criscito, 24, is expected to complete a co-ownership deal worth €6 million for 50 per cent of his playing rights.

The news was announced by Capozucca two weeks ago, but reports claimed Leonardo was planning to take the Italian international to the Parc des Princes once he joins them as a director.

However, Capozucca has stepped in to rubbish those claims, insisting there is a deal in place between Napoli and the Genoa.

"There is no need to worry about Criscito's move to Napoli. The agreement between the clubs has already been reached," he told Radio Crc.

"PSG? No, there has been no contact with that club and I don't think they have contacted Criscito who is on holiday in America."

Criscito made 36 appearances for Genoa last season and recently said a change of position would be considered in order to join his hometown club Napoli.
