Former Napoli president Corrado Ferlaino claims Diego Maradona cost the club “double what Cristiano Ronaldo would cost today” after the star joined from Barcelona in 1984.

The Serie A outfit splashed out a then-world record transfer fee of £5 million to acquire the mercurial Argentine, who had previously broken the same record when arriving at Camp Nou.

“He cost double what Cristiano would cost today. The intellectuals criticised me – they said Napoli was a poor city and it was immoral. But it was my money, and I wanted to spend it that way. When I signed the contract in Barcelona, I went to a bar and ordered a whisky on the rocks.The waiter said to me: ‘Are you Italian? What a great deal we’re getting out of this with Maradona – he’s fat.’ I didn’t enjoy that drink at all, ” recounted Ferlaino.
