Di Natale set to extend

Antonio Di Natale will sit down and sign a new contract with Udinese once he returns from Euro 2012.

The player had cast doubt on his club future before heading off to the European Championship, but an extension seems to be on the horizon.

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Di Natale will put pen to paper on a contract until June 2014 at some stage next month.

Di Natale, signed in 2004 from Empoli, is currently committed to the Stadio Friuli outfit for another 12 months.

The veteran will turn 35 in October and he’s been linked with a possible lucrative move abroad with clubs in the United Arab Emirates, as well as Zenit, interested.

The latter are bossed by Luciano Spalletti, a tactician who has worked with Di Natale in the past.
