Report: Milik asks to stay at Napoli | Football Italia

  Arkadiusz Milik has suddenly told Napoli he wants to stay, infuriating the club and having a knock-on effect for Roma and Juventus.

  According to Sky


Sport Italia, the Poland international has decided he’s not intrigued by the options on the table for him – specifically Roma or Tottenham Hotspur – and would prefer to remain at the Stadio San Paolo.

  However, as his contract is due to expire in June 2021 and he refused an extension, that means he could soon leave as a free agent.

  “If Arek doesn’t find another club, then it won’t be an easy situation for him, because we have already signed another two forwards. There’s no room for him,” coach Gennaro Gattuso told Sky Sport Italia this evening.

  If Milik refuses to move, that will have a serious knock-on effect for other clubs, as Roma have been negotiating to sign him as a replacement for Edin Dzeko.

  Once he arrives, then Dzeko could be allowed to leave the Giallorossi for Juventus.

  Milik had originally rejected the Napoli extension, as he expected to reunite with Maurizio Sarri at Juventus, but then the former Partenopei coach was fired.

Tonali: ‘My Milan dreams have come true’ | Football Italia

  Sandro Tonali’s ‘dream has come true’ of wearing idol Gennaro Gattuso’s Number 8 Milan jersey and working with club legend Paolo Maldini.

  The 20-year-old completed his transfer from Brescia last night, on loan for €10m with option to buy for a further €15m, plus €10m in bonuses and a cut of any future sale.

  “My dream has come true,” the lifelong Rossoneri fan told Milan TV as he toured the trophy room.

  “It’s a dream that many children have. I decided to post the photo of myself as a kid wearing the Milan shirt on Instagram because it seemed a perfect way to describe the moment I left the Rossoneri colours behind to pursue a career and now I return to this team. It’s a sign.”

  Tonali also confirms the story that he phoned Napoli coach Gattuso to personally ask permission for the Number 8 jersey.

  “I chose 8 because it has meaning both as a midfield role and for Milan. It was worn by a player who made the history of this club, Gattuso. I did call and he replied as a coach, telling me I didn’t even need to ask, that I should take it and go do everything.”

  The negotiations with Brescia went through another club legend, technical director Paolo Maldini.

  “I admired Maldini as a child and hoped, at most, to one day get a selfie with him.

Now we are working together. It’s such a great feeling to be next to a Milan legend.

  “It’ll be wonderful to play alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic, too. It might be easier to provide assists for him, as he never misses. I already spoke to Gigio (Donnarumma), (Davide) Calabria and (Alessio) Romagnoli, who are all friends from our time on international duty. They gave me lots of advice and we are ready for this new adventure.

  “This is a young team, but one that has already shown itself to be a great group of players. We have this desire to create, there will be opportunities and we must take them without hesitation.

  “I tell the fans that together we can do anything, even the impossible is not beyond this Milan.”

Arthur: ‘Juventus project convinced me’ | Football Italia

  Arthur Melo said he was persuaded by the ‘ambitious project’ at Juventus and revealed it’s the ‘realisation of a dream’ to play with Cristiano Ronaldo.

  The Brazil international was presented as a new Juventus player today and spoke highly of the Bianconeri project ahead of the 2020-21 season.

  “This is a very important day for me, I thank my family, the managers, Fabio [Paratici], and everyone who have welcomed me,” Arthur said at a press conference.

  “I have the privilege to play with great players, playing with


Ronaldo is almost the realisation of a dream.

  “The project convinced me, it’s very ambitious.”

  Arthur has not discussed his position at Juventus with coach Andrea Pirlo.

  “I haven’t spoken in detail with the coach. He has played football like few others, he moved and played in a unique way.

  “I feel the privilege of playing for such a coach. We haven’t talked about the formation and position on the pitch yet.”

  Arthur was swapped with Miralem Pjanic and thanked Barcelona for his time at Camp Nou.

  “I can only thank Barcelona, they showed great affection for me. I was treated very well, as part of a very ambitious project.

  “I though it could be an impetus for my career. One of the main reasons for my move was the Champions League.

  “The Juventus project is extremely ambitious. The Champions League is a priority, I will work with my teammates to achieve that goal and many others.”

  The Brazilian midfielder expects a more physical League in Italy and ‘can’t wait to get started’.

  “Serie A, I believe, has more physical contact. It’s a great League, it will be a difficult season, but Juventus are a great team.

  “There will be many battles and we can’t wait to get started.”

Inter: Zhang meets with Conte today | Football Italia

  Decisive hours at Inter, as President Steven Zhang will meet with coach Antonio Conte today, to discuss the future at San Siro.

  The Nerazzurri coach admitted his future was not certain after the Europa League Final defeat to Sevilla last Friday, and Sky Sport Italia reveals the President will meet face to face with the former Italy CT today.

  The report claims Inter will not be able to promise Conte substantial investments on the transfer market and will be on a budget given the current financial situation.

  Even if Zhang wants to continue with Conte, the broadcaster explains he will not be able to satisfy the coach’s requests unless they are economically sustainable.

  Conte lifted Inter to second in Serie A 2019-20, helped the squad to the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia and finished runners-up in the Europa League.

  Il Corriere dello Sport claims the patron believes in peace and has not abandoned the idea of being able to find a way to heal the current wound.

  The newspaper claims CEO Beppe Marotta and sporting director Piero Ausilio will not attend the meeting but could be called in and involved if there are possibilities to continue the collaboration.

  Yesterday, Tuttosport claimed Roma could offer Ausilio the vacant position as sporting director in the Italian capital, as


Conte seems opposed to stay in Milan with Marotta and the director still in place.

  But Conte will have to compromise on the reported requests for reinforcements to take the next step and it could be up to the coach himself to decide to stay on.

  Gianluca Di Marzio writes that we are entering decisive hours for the coach, who could face the sack or end up terminating the contract by mutual consent.

  Massimiliano Allegri seems to be the solution should Conte leave the Beneamata after only one season, as reports in Italian media claim the former Milan and Juventus coach wants the Inter job over a move to Paris Saint-Germain

Mirabelli: ‘Messi more than a dream for Inter’ | Football Italia

  Former Inter director Massimiliano Mirabelli ‘can assure you Lionel Messi is more than a dream’ for owners Suning, who have been working on this for years.

  With Barcelona humiliated 8-2 by Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-final and the club on the verge of a revolution, reports are growing in Spain, Italy and Argentina that Messi could leave Camp Nou.

  Manchester City or Inter appear to be the only real candidates and this is no idle interest from the Nerazzurri.

  “When I was at Inter, President Zhang would talk about the transfer market and say, ‘I want Messi,’ but we had


to explain it wasn’t possible due to Financial Fair Play,” Mirabelli told Radio Sportiva.

  “I can assure you that Messi is more than a dream for Inter. He now has only a year left on his contract and Barca don’t want to risk losing him for free next summer.

  “There are important decisions to be made in Spain, but they won’t want to be left empty-handed. Anyone who wants to make the most of the situation should step forward.”

  La Gazzetta dello Sport has outlined why it’s entirely possible for Inter to afford Messi, especially if he arrives on a free transfer, as owners Suning and the Zhang family can use sponsorship deals to carry a massive salary.

  A television station in China owned by Suning also used Messi’s shadow cast on the Duomo di Milano cathedral as part of an advertisement for an upcoming Inter Serie A match.

  Meanwhile, Inter are no longer under strict FFP limitations after years of balancing the books.

Barcelona start ‘restructuring of team’ | Football Italia

  Barcelona have officially sacked coach Quique Setien and announced ‘a wider restructuring of the first team,’ as reports continue to suggest Lionel Messi could leave.

  The Inter and Manchester City target is for the first time genuinely considering his future at Camp Nou after the 8-2 Champions League quarter-final defeat to Bayern Munich.

  His contract expires in June 2021, although there is a clause that allows him to leave for free, even if the details aren’t very clear.

  “The Board of Directors have agreed that Quique Setién is no longer the first team coach,” read a statement.

  “This is the first decision within a wider restructuring of the first team which will be agreed between the current technical secretary and the new coach, who will be announced in the coming days.”

  It’s widely reported Ronald Koeman will be the new coach, although first the club must buy him out of his contract with the Netherlands international team.

  President Josep Bartomeu has not resigned and an election will not be held until March, 2021.

  “The FC Barcelona Board of Directors, assuming its responsibility for the sporting situation that the club are experiencing, have agreed that the date for the next presidential elections will be the first matchday past March 15, 2021. The formal announcement of the elections will take place at the end of January 2021, in accordance with the provisions of article 43.1 of the Club Statutes.

  “After considering all options, the Board consider this to be the most viable date for the aforementioned elections. The Board understand that an immediate call for elections is not feasible, given that the league season will begin on the weekend of September 12, 2020, and the situation arising from the COVID-19 crisis -both economically and


socially. Consequently, the club will continue to implement the plan to reverse the sporting and economic situation, based on profound changes to the first team, plus a redefined budget to deal with the new situation caused by COVID-19, before the end of the current mandate.

  “The holding of the elections from March 15 next year implies that the Board of Directors assume full responsibility regarding the 2020-2021 financial year.

  “Likewise, the holding of elections on the first available date within the deadline set due to the end of the mandate, in accordance with the provisions of the Club Statutes, will allow an orderly transition to the winning candidacy, which will have a sufficient time frame in which to plan for the 2021-2022 season.”

Conte: ‘Inter prove ourselves against Sevilla’ | Football Italia

  Antonio Conte urges Inter to ‘show on the pitch we’re the best’ against Sevilla in the Europa League Final, but it has already ‘been a positive season overall.’

  It kicks off on Friday at 20.00 UK time (19.00 GMT) in Koln.

  “It will be a tough game. We’re playing the team with the most experience and who have won the most titles over the last decade of this competition,” Conte told

  “We have to be attentive, but also play our own game with great enthusiasm and courage, like we have done so far. It’s a final and only the best teams get to the final. So we have to show on the pitch that we’re the best if we want this trophy.

  “We have to play with the desire to win and bring the trophy back to Italy – and to bring a trophy back to Inter. Sevilla will have the same idea, so we have to show that we’re the better team.

  “For me, it’s always important to be able to say to the lads, at the end of the game, that we don’t have any regrets. If we’re the better side, we’ll lift the trophy. If not, we’ll have given our all, and we’ll applaud our opponents.”

  This is the first major European Final for Inter since Jose Mourinho won the Treble in 2010, while it is the first in Conte’s career. Does that mean his first season at San Siro has been a success?

  “We still


have to draw our final conclusions as there’s still one more match, which for us is the most important game – it’s a final, the chance to win a major trophy. I certainly think it’s been a positive season overall. We’ve done important things and have made major improvements.

  “We’ve managed to get to the UEFA Europa League final, despite the small disappointment of not getting through the Champions League group stage.

  “We see the glass as half full, because [that disappointment] has allowed us to have a much more successful journey in the Europa League than we would have had in the Champions League. I think this team, with a lot of young, inexperienced players, needed that.”

  Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez have formed a sensational partnership upfront and Conte credits their selflessness.

  “I knew Lukaku very well because he’s a player I’d followed for some time. I tried many times to sign him at my former clubs. I knew the characteristics he had.

  “They’re players who have the typical selfishness of a forward, but also the selflessness to play for the team and help others score.”

  Diego Godin fully confessed that he struggled at first to understand what Conte wanted of him, so the coach gave a clearer explanation.

  “He had to learn to defend while running forward, and to learn to defend with 50 yards of space behind him. He had the strength, professionalism and humility to make himself available and broaden his game in terms of playing style.

  “So, credit to him. He put himself out there and took on the new challenge, and now he is seeing great results.”

Godin: ‘I can be a leader now’ | Football Italia

  Inter defender Diego Godin says he can finally ‘be a leader on and off the pitch’ and claims the Nerazzurri are ‘in the situation they want to be in’ ahead of the semi-final against Shakhtar Donetsk.

  The Uruguayan defender arrived from Atletico Madrid last summer and initially struggled to establish himself in the Inter squad.

  But the centre-back has been a revelation of late, helping the Beneamata to second in Serie A and the semi-finals of the Europa League.

  Now, he’s focused on the task at hand and says Inter have studied their Ukrainian opponents ahead of the clash on Monday.

  “We know them well, we saw the match against Basel,” he told Inter TV. “They love to keep the ball, drop down and use the flanks when they attack.

  “They have a lot of quality and we must be good at pressing them and finding plays to hurt them.”

  The 34-year-old, who won the competition twice during his time with Atleti, thinks the ‘harmony in the dressing room’ will be vital for the Nerazzurri to build on their current success.

  “We are a good group, we always have been,” the Uruguay international added. “It’s essential to have harmony in the dressing room, combined with quality players.

  “We are happy and in the situation we want to be in.”

  Godin admits it took time to adapt to life in Milan and that he had to ‘win a battle with himself’ to convince coach Antonio Conte.

  “I worked hard to translate his indications to the pitch, different from those of my previous experiences,” Godin conceded. “I had to change mind and body, it wasn’t easy.

  “But I understood his idea, how he wants to carry the team forward. I think I won the battle with myself, now it’s easier for me to help my teammates and be a leader, with the coach’s ideas, on and off the pitch.”

Iovino: ‘Osimhen asked to change representatives’ | Football Italia

  Star Factory representative Franco Iovino has claimed Lille made Victor Osimhen change agency in order to sell the forward to Napoli ‘because of the excellent relationship between the Presidents’.

  Iovino of the Star Factory, the agency that previously looked after the interests of Lille forward Osimhen, has accused Lille of ‘advising’ Osimhen to change agent.

  The Nigerian did eventyally go with William D’Avila, who has since been vital in the negotiations with Napoli and Iovino spoke to Radio Punto Nuovo regarding the transfer saga.

  “It was not clear what happened,” Iovino said. “Perhaps something fishy went down, probably between the Presidents of Lille and Napoli.

  “The negotiations didn’t slow down because of Star Factory but because the player kept hesitating. William D’Avila is a home agent in Lille. The club will surely have advised Osimhen to leave us and go with him.

  “They will certainly have promised him money. Lille for some reason wanted to only sell to Napoli, because there’s an excellent relationship between the Presidents.

  “At the moment, my company doesn’t need to look itself in the mirror, the two clubs do.”

Orsolini: ‘Miha should have told me in private’ | Football Italia

  Bologna forward Riccardo Orsolini struggled to explain the Rossoblu’s poor form and revealed he confronted coach Sinisa Mihajlovic. ‘I didn’t like certain things he said about me’.

  The Rossoblu have only picked up one win in their seven last games and Orsolini admitted that the players ‘don’t know what happened’.

  “We ask ourselves; we also gave ourselves some explanations but they’re not enough,” Orsolini told Il Corriere dello Sport. “We felt the drop physically, but in the end, we don’t know what happened.”

  But the 23-year-old revealed that Mihajlovic has left them in silence to ‘reflect’ on the performances in recent weeks.

  “He didn’t speak to us; he didn’t give us any lessons. It was more of a deafening silence than harsh words.

  “The silence makes you reflect and the more you think, the worse you feel.”

  But the coach has always had a special rapport with Orsolini and publicly said he ‘expects more’ from the Italy international.

  “We have a frank relationship,” Orsolini added. “We often talk, and I didn’t like certain things he said about me at the press conference.

  “I didn’t like it when he said I have to wake up, but I didn’t hide from him. It would have been better if he told me in private.

  “He said it to shake me.”
