AC Milan’s president Silvio Berlusconi has reportedly made a bid for the Napoli manager Roberto Mancini.
The Rossoneri boss has been out of work since taking over from Gianluigi Donnarumma in January.
But Berluscan has reportedly been on his radar for months and has reportedly turned down an offer of around €2 million ($2.1 million).
A source close to the Milan boss has confirmed the deal.
Napoli are expected to pay €5 million ($6.6 million) for the former Milan boss, with Roma paying €3 million ($4.4 million).
It is the latest in a long line of moves for Berlusco’s signature.
In June, he agreed to join Fiorentina for a reported fee of around £10 million ($14.4 m).
The Rossonias are the latest club to make a move for the 56-year-old, with Inter also reportedly interested in his services.
