Morgan De Sanctis

Napoli’s thrilling run in this season’s Champions League has propelled De Santis’s profile into orbit and he has emerged as the most likely replacement for Gianluigi Buffon if injury or suspension becomes an issue for the Azzurri captain at Euro 2012.


Previously with Pescara and Juventus, he hit the headlines back in 2007 when he cancelled his contract with Udinese in accordance with FIFA’s article 17, which states that a player may cancel his deal with a club unilaterally after three years, or two if he is over the age of 28.


In the end De Sanctis, was ordered to pay Udinese €2,250,055 in compensation for walking out on his contract, yet spell in Spain was ultimately not a success and after a spell on loan in Turkey with Galatasaray, he returned to his homeland with Napoli in 2009.


An Italian international since 2005, he played in the Euro 2012 qualifier against Northern Ireland last October and represents a safe pair of hands for Italy coach Cesare Prandelli to have in reserve.
