“When you live in Naples you can never forget,” he told Sky Sport Italy. “I had a wonderful experience and I am very fond of the city and the fans.
“Now, honestly I’m not thinking about it because my concentration is all on Chelsea. But if there is the possibility, one day you don’t know when, to return, of course I’d like it.”
His comments followed an interview with Italian TV channel Canale21 last month in which he unsurprisingly claimed that he prefers the hot sun of Naples to the grey, rainy skies over London.
“There are no words to describe how much I miss Naples,” he said.
“Who wouldn’t miss Naples? It’s so cold in London, they don’t even know what the sun is.”
