Walter Mazzarri has refused to commit his future to Napoli, with rumours that he could be set to depart the Estadio San Paolo.
The 51-year-old has been strongly linked with the Roma job, which is currently filled by caretaker boss Aurelio Andreazzoli.
Napoli president Aurelio Di Laurentiis has expressed his desire to keep Mazzarri at the club, who have qualified for next season’s UEFA Champions League by securing a second-placed finish in Serie A.
The Naples outfit will face Roma in their final fixture of the season on Sunday and Mazzarri refused to be drawn on whether he could be switching allegiances before next term.
“Last summer when I told you I was going to make a decision at the end of the season,” he said.
“I meant after 38 games, now we’ve played 37 games, so there’s still one left to play, and as I’ve always said, I will talk about my decision and my choice, giving you full explanations, right after the last game, right after tomorrow’s match with Roma.”
Napoli have enjoyed great success in the transfer market, plucking the likes of Edinson Cavani, Marek Hamsik and Ezequiel Lavezzi on relatively affordable deals.
The latter has since joined Paris Saint-Germain for 30 million euros while the Uruguayan striker and Slovakian midfielder have been linked with big-money moves, with Mazzarri claiming the transfer policy will stand the club in good stead for the future.
He added: “If financial fair play becomes compulsory, Napoli over the last four years have achieved sporting results in line with their financial results.
“That’s been Napoli’s great strength and our great victory compared to other clubs. I think that if we consider that aspect over the last four seasons, Napoli would be at the top of the table, not in second place – where we’re guaranteed to finish this season.”
