Internacional rejects Napoli bid for Damiao

Internacional sporting director Luis Cesar Souto de Moura has made it clear that the club will not let go of star striker Leandro Damiao unless its 25 million euros valuation of the Brazil international is met.

The 23-year-old has attracted the interest of clubs such as Olympique de Marseille and Tottenham, but the Brazilian outfit will not allow him to move on on the cheap.

"An offer for Leandro Damiao will only be considered if it's around 25 million euros," Moura told Radio Guaiba.

However, the Internacional director has insisted that the club has yet to receive an official offer for the prolific striker.

"There is no offer for Leandro Damiao. We understand the following as an offer: when an agent or club make an official inquiry and expresses interest in the player."

The striker's Internacional contract runs until 2017.
