Although no details have been shared as just yet, Briaschi, is very confident that a new deal will be signed as soon as possible since both parties wanted the same thing.
“We are very near to concluding a deal. The desire to renew is there from both sides and we are just a few details away from reaching an agreement. I met with club officials from Napoli last week and I’m convinced that a deal will be signed very soon,” Briaschi said.
Maggio’s current deal with Napoli supposedly will end in the summer of 2013, that’s why should the Partenopei are serious in keeping him, extending his contract before next season is necessary. Should there’s still no talk about new deal until next season, there’s a big chance that the former Fiorentina man would be considering other offers which usually arrives for a quality player at the end of their contract.
The right back has been having an excellent years with the Partenopei especially since last season when he practically promoted himself into earning a spot in the Italian national team because of his fine form at club level. Aside from Napoli’s trio of Ezequiel Lavezzi, Marek Hamsik and Edinson Cavani, Maggio is being acknowledged by many as one of the Southern Italian club’s main force that makes their counter attacking style works.
Earlier this summer, Maggio’s agent already warned Napoli’s management that they must immediately set their mind about the Italian international’s future as there have been rumors about several big clubs interest on him. Obviously with the recent positive development regarding the player’s future at San Paolo, the Partenopei’s devotees can breath a sigh of relief as it seems that one of their important players won’t be going anywhere from the club.
