Claudio Cassano is off to a splendid start in his maiden season after Cittadella acquired him from Roma last summer. He drew the nod in all four official matches so far. He has yet to score but has shined consistently. The Granata paid €200k to sign him.
Juventus have rekindled their interest in Emil Holm. Atalanta haven’t struck a complete agreement with Spezia just yet. The Bianconeri are keen on adding him, but they’ll need to trim their squad before making an addition. Samuel Iling and Matias Soulé, who could use some more playing time, could be loaned out.
Marco Pellegrino has jumped ahead of Konstantinos Koulierakis in the two-man race to round out the Milan defense. The front office had new contacts with Atletico Platense to set up the deal. Sampdoria are after the center-back too. The Rossoneri seem to prefer the Argentine before he costs less.
Lazar Samardzic and Emil Audero are about to become new Inter players formally. Both arrived in Milan Wednesday night to take the medicals and put pen to paper. The Udinese prodigy will ink a five-year contract. Instead, the goalie is joining on loan from Sampdoria.
Inter have completed the acquisition of Yann Sommer. The goalkeeper arrived in Italy Sunday and completed the medicals and inked a three-year contract Monday. He was the first to officialize the transfer by bidding farewell to his former fans on Instagram. The Nerazzurri shelled out €6M.
Sassuolo and Salernitana have also enquired Bari for information about Cheddira. Yet, Bari’s demands do not look likely to incite a move from either side. Cheddira is contracted with Bari until the summer of 2025, and the Puglia-based outfit are expected to demand atleast €10M for the versatile forward.
Just days after signing Valencia youth product Facundo Gonzalez, Juventus are preparing to send the youngster out on loan to fasten his development. Knowing the fact that playing time is going to be limited next season in a talented Bianconeri side under Max Allegri, Gonzalez is in line for a loan transfer.
Only a year after penning a two-year contract at Serie B minnows Como 1907, Cesc Fabregas has announced his retirement from football. At 36, the former Spain international has decided to hang up his boots and join the Italians' technical staff.
Backed by the new management, the former Juventus coach has been trusted by Andrea Radrizzani to secure an immediate return to Serie A following a tumultuous season for the club under ex-patron Massimo Ferrero.
A spectacular 95th-minute goal allowed Claudio Ranieri and Cagliari to return to the Serie A in a 1-0 victory over Bari. The visitors were denied time and time again by Bari goalkeeper Elia Barile, but the Rossoblu overcame the performance and shockingly netted a late goal. After just one season in Serie B, Cagliari is back.
Cagliari and Bari shared the spoils at the Unipol Domus Arena in the first leg of a playoff to determine the final participant to the Serie A 2023/24. Italian-Peruvian striker Gianluca Lapadula opened the scoring for Claudio Ranieri's Sardinians early in the game, but a late spot kick from Mirco Antenucci set the score at 1-1 on 95 minutes.
The Radrizzani-Manfredi coalition might have saved the Italian club from the clutches of bankruptcy, but only at the expense of the English club Radrizzani chairs.
