Report: Corinthians reject loan offer from Napoli for midfielder Ralf
Corinthians director Roberto Ximenes has insisted midfielder Ralf will not be allowed to leave on loan.
Recent reports have strongly suggested that Napoli are interested in the 29 year-old and made an offer to loan him for the rest of the season on Thursday.
Ximenes is adamant that Ralf can not depart in a temporary switch, though admits a deal is possible at the right price.
"There is no chance of a loan," he told Folha de S. Paulo.
"If there is a proposal to buy him, we will consider it. He still commands considerable market value. He has shown that with his performances on the pitch.”
Ralf joined Corinthians from Grêmio Barueri in July 2012. Last season, he made 36 appearances in the Brasileirão.
