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.
