Paolo Cannavaro will consider leaving hometown club Napoli should he continue to sit on the bench.
The defender was an untouchable in the Azzurri starting XI, but he has failed to break into the first team plans of new boss Rafael Benitez.
“Paolo has gone from playing seven or eight games a month to a place on the bench,” agent Enrico Fedele told Calcio Mercato.
“He is certainly not happy about that, but he is continuing to train and being an example to everyone.
“I don’t know if anything will change, but, in football, something can change in a second which remained unaltered for three months.”
Cannavaro, the club captain, has been linked with a possible January move to Inter – where he would join up with former boss Walter Mazzarri.
“I don’t know if Mazzarri is interested right now,” the representative added. “There was something in the summer, but not anything significant.
“If things don’t change at Napoli then we could discuss the possibility of a transfer.”
