As was speculated a few days ago, Raul Albiol has officially signed for Serie A team – Napoli on a four year contract. Fee of his transfer have not been made official but Italian media speculate it cost the Naples team 12 million Euros for the Spaniard.
He joins Rafa Benitez who has managed Albiol previously during his time at Valencia. He would also have some Real Madrid company in Naples with Jose Callejon moving there earlier in the week.
There is more speculation that there could be a third Real Madrid player joining Napoli with Gonzalo Higuain being linked to the club.
A good move for Albiol as he was unlikely to get playing time in Madrid even if he was solid with his limited playing time. Additional support being provided by Benitez would help him further.
