According to SportMediaset, Napoli star Lorenzo Insigne has reached an agreement with Toronto FC, where he will move as a free agent at the end of the season.
Insigne sees his current deal expire in June 2022. He has been linked with Inter and Tottenham but seems to have picked Toronto as his next destination.
According to SportMediaset, the 30-year-old has agreed personal terms with the MLS side.
Insigne will reportedly earn €9.5m-a-year for five seasons.
Napoli had offered him a €3.5m contract, less than his current €5m deal.
In a recent interview with Il Corriere dello Sport, his agent Vincenzo Pisacane suggested Insigne move abroad in case he’d leave Napoli.
According to the report, one of the reasons why Insigne will move to Toronto is that he won’t meet Napoli in any competition.
The economic part has clearly had an impact on Insigne’s choice. According to the report, there is no doubt that the Italy international will join Toronto and could even sign his contract in January.
UPDATE: According to Sky Sport Italia, Toronto’s offer is even higher and Insigne is ‘tempted’ although he hasn’t yet accepted it.
