Napoli want Man Utd friendly game

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has revealed he has offered Manchester United one million euros to play his team in a friendly.

The proposal - worth £880,000 - is for United to play at the San Paolo stadium in Naples.

The Serie A outfit want to raise their international profile and hope the English champions will accept the invitation.

Speaking at a press conference today, De Laurentiis said: ''I have offered Manchester United one million euros to come here and play a friendly against Napoli. I am awaiting a reply.

''My aim is to bring Napoli to be among the top teams, not just in Italy, but at international level. There is a lot of work to be done.''

Napoli, who finished third in Serie A last term, will play in the Champions League next season.
