Veteran defender Raúl Albiol has quashed speculation over his future by extending his contract with Serie A runners-up Napoli until June 2021.

Napoli have announced that in-demand defender Raúl Albiol has signed a new contract until 2021. The former Spain international had been tipped to leave Stadio San Paolo ahead of the 2018-19 season, with Chelsea mentioned as a possible destination.

Abiol keen to work under Ancelotti

The 32-year-old has signed a fresh deal, though, signalling his desire to work under Napoli's new manager Carlo Ancelotti, who replaced Maurizio Sarri last month.

Albiol joined the Serie A outfit from Real Madrid in 2013 and made 39 appearances in all competitions last season.
