Fredy Guarin's transfer to Juventus was dramatically derailed at the eleventh hour, leaving the Colombian international in limbo.
However, after protracted fan pressure from Inter's side, owner Erik Thohir didn't give his go-ahead and Guarin remains at the club.
But the midfield talent, who had set his heart on Turin, is now left in purgatory and hasn't yet returned to training.
Guarin faces the possibility of being unpopular with the Inter fans who feel he was ready to betray them and he will be looking for another club to step in.
According to respected Italian transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, Napoli are willing to save the day and make an offer for Guarin.
It remains to be seen whether Napoli have the necessary financial resources and whether Guarin is happy to move there.
