Rafael Benitez has rubbished claims that he will look to lure unsettled Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli to Napoli this winter.
Recent reports suggested that the former Liverpool boss was looking to raid his old club for the 24-year old Italian striker in the January transfer window.
However, Benitez has made it clear he has no intention on landing the fiery Italian.
As quoted on the Gazzetta dello Sport website, he said: “Mario coming to us in January? There is absolutely nothing to this, it is just a hypothesis that I have never considered.”
