Rumour: Jose Mourinho had a scout at Napoli v Atalanta looking at three players

Napoli v Atalanta

The big game in Serie A on Saturday night saw top three hopefuls Napoli and Atalanta duke it out in Naples.

Napoli came into the game with only two home defeats all season, but they fell 2-0 after 70 minutes. Mattia Caldara scored in each half for the visitors, while they were reduced to ten men when Frank Kessie was sent off for a second bookable offence in the 67th minute.

According to rumours from Italian media during the game, Man United had a scout in the Stadio San Paolo.

Looking at three players

Man United were reported looking at three players.

First was 23-year-old Napoli right-back Elseid Hysaj. Second was Napoli’s 22-year-old Polish midfielder Piotr Zieliński. And the final players was 20-year-old Kessie, who was sent off.

Does that mean Man United will make a move for any of these players? No, but it’s interesting.
