Napoli director Cristiano Giuntoli has revealed why the Serie A side did not pursue a move for Cristiano Ronaldo this summer, despite speculation linking him with a move to the club.

Ronaldo was intent on leaving Old Trafford after Manchester United failed to qualify for this season's Champions League. However, he didn't particularly come close to leaving and has now fallen down the pecking order in Manchester.

The 37-year-old was linked with several clubs across Europe - most notably Chelsea and Bayern Munich - while Napoli seemingly emerged as a late contender for his signature.
