Officially, Ervolino and sporting director De Sanctis were not notified of the meeting in Rome: neither by De Laurentiis, nor by Paulo Souza, nor by a lawyer.

Intrigue Paulo Souza. Corriere dello Sport writes about it with Antonio Giordano and Fabio Mandarini. They confirmed that in the end, contrary to what Italiano had been told, he went to break the eggs in another team’s basket by meeting Paulo Sousa.
De Laurentiis wants Sousa on the bench and is said to have a two-year option ready, but on Thursday Salernitana exercised the option to unilaterally renew until 2025 with one of those Pecs who contributed to the ruined relationship with Spalletti at Napoli. Spins and Resumptions: Ervolino wasn’t fazed by his teammate and his technicians, but he certainly didn’t take it well.
Officially, Ervolino and sporting director De Sanctis had not yet been notified of the meeting in Rome: neither by De Laurentiis, nor by Paulo Souza, nor by a lawyer. (…) Souza, who has a contract until 2025, can free himself by June 20 by paying a fine of one million euros. One million eight hundred thousand euros to whomever goes to pay it (technical and tax issues).
Meanwhile, words like boomerangs are back: DeLa, quoting an old Neapolitan saying and combining it with the hunt for coach, has always declared: “Why frustrate pasticciotto?”. Why disturb or spoil another club’s plans by approaching a contracted player? And again: “I do not pay any conditions or fines.”
