The coronavirus crisis has hit the soccer world, and clubs are already thinking about the short and long term future. In the first term, the concerns focus on when and how it will be possible to play again, to minimize the consequences that the break is having on an economic level. At the same time, yes, it is planned for everything to come, with demanding seasons and full of commitments with hardly any rest.

Napoli wants to get back on track after an irregular campaign, and begins to test targets in the transfer market. His own institutional and sports crisis hit him in the first months of the course, in which he went from fighting for the titles to sinking into a Serie A in which he is very far from the leader. His hopes are the Coppa and the Champions, in addition to obtaining the ticket for the European competitions again.

But in Italy and Germany they also assure that in summer there will be a lot of movement in San Paolo, where a long list of ups and downs is expected. Efforts to retain stars like Fabián Ruiz will be combined with a locker room cleanup that Gennaro Gattuso could oversee. The coach would have already pointed to several expendable footballers, and would have given the green light to launch some additions.

Both 'Il Matino' and 'Bild' agree that the matches are among the favorites to take over the services of Mario Götze. The Memmingen footballer ends his contract on June 30, 2020 - the date will change when the pending matches are rescheduled - and he is close at hand, because he intends to revitalize a career that has come less after a few years of ups and downs at Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund .

The German is not the only opportunity for the 'azurri', well placed in the fight for Luka Jovic. After shining at Eintracht Frankfurt, the Serb has been lost at Real Madrid, where his lack of adaptation and attitude and the disinterest of Zinedine Zidane have been mixed. Competition is fierce and the price is high - it could be around 50 million euros - but the Neapolitans will fight to add the striker to their squad.

Napoli does not give up dreaming of the Champions League

While in Italy they doubt if the season will come to an end, Napoli does not give up dreaming of the Champions League. Its immediate future will depend on the decisions that UEFA, FIFA and the leagues make regarding the return to action, once the health authorities give their authorization. In their knockout round tie against FC Barcelona, ​​they registered a 1-1 at San Paolo, and the Camp Nou match is pending.
