Rossi concerned by Matri sale

Italy legend Paolo Rossi isn’t too sure that former club Juventus would be right to sell Alessandro Matri.

The latter is understood to be in talks about a possible transfer to title rivals Napoli following the Turin arrivals of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente.

“We need to understand the desires of Matri,” the 1982 World Cup winner commented to Tuttosport.

“If he is not happy at Juventus then it is only right for him to find a new club. However, if he is happy to sit on the bench at Juve then…

“Make no mistake, Matri is a guarantee.”

The striker, who will be 29 later this month, joined the Old Lady in January 2011 from Cagliari. He has scored 23 goals in 83 games for the Bianconeri.
