Milik disappointed by the treatment Napoli gave him
However, Milik has not played a single minute this season with Napoli.

He stated that he “expected this decision” but that the “lack of communication from the club is not professional.”
Milik continued: “Napoli wanted to extend my contract for five years and gave me two options: sign or leave.

“There has never been hostility from me towards Napoli. I wanted to solve everything professionally. “
Milik was eager to join Everton, but Carlo Ancelotti dismissed the idea.
