Despite speculation suggesting a move could go ahead this summer, Sporting Life is reporting that Roma will NOT make a move for Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi.
Rossi – who had a two year spell at Manchester United between 2005 and 2007 – is currently recovering from a knee injury, but this hasn’t stopped transfer rumours.
After what has been a successful spell for Villarreal so far – he has scored 54 goals for the La Liga club – Rossi has constantly been linked with a move back to Italy.
With Villarreal relegated from La Liga, it is now widely expected that Rossi will move on and several Serie A clubs have been linked.
Roma appear out of the running though with general director Franco Baldini saying: “We had shown an interest in Giuseppe Rossi”
“However, he had another serious knee injury and he will not return to play until March. Hence, he cannot be considered a target in our transfer market.”
This may be the way many other clubs decide to go too. They may want Rossi to prove his fitness before making a move.
Other clubs mentioned with regards to the Italian striker are Juventus, Napoli and Inter Milan. For now though, he is still a Villarreal player, one that is contracted until 2016.
The player’s agent still believes a move will happen though, saying ‘anything can happen’ with regards to the player’s future.
First things first though, he needs to get over missing Euro 2012 and get himself fit to play regular first-team football once again.
