Reports continue on Jonathan Biabiany’s future, with Parma and Sampdoria supposedly now in agreement to sell him.
The two clubs have until 7pm Italian time on Friday to resolve their co-ownership agreement over the French winger.
Reports through the week have been of struggles between new Samp President Massimo Ferrero and Parma sporting director Pietro Leonardi to reach agreement on the Ducali taking full registration rights.
The Gazzetta dello Sport believe that on from this, the clubs are now intent on selling their respective shares in Biabiany, at a price that they can both make a positive return on money already invested.
Il Secolo XIX reiterate this point and suggest that should a buyer not come in by tomorrow’s co-ownership deadline, then an extension of the clubs’ current 50-50 split is likely.
Whilst the Italian Football Federation is phasing out co-ownership deals, clubs are allowed to extend existing deals for a further year.
