Napoli star Lorenzo Insigne emerged as a transfer target for the Catalan giants, after Neymar joined Paris Saint-Germain for a world-record fee of €222 million.

Barca were also linked with the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Angel Di Maria, but they only managed to sign Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund as a possible replacement for Neymar.

However, Insigne says he remained with Napoli to win something important with the club.

“I’m proud to have stayed here,” Insigne told Rai, according to Football Italia.

“We know that Barcelona are the best team in the world though.

“I would have liked to play with champions like Messi and [Luis] Suarez but now I’m thinking of Napoli and I hope to win something important with Napoli.”
