Di Vaio to quit Bologna?

Bologna are confident that star striker Marco Di Vaio will still be playing for the club in Serie A next season.

"Di Vaio will stay," said Rossoblu market consultant Salvatore Bagni. "He is a Bologna player and a fundamental one for us."

The former Italian international played a vital role in keeping the Stadio Dall'Ara outfit in the top flight this term.

However, he's encountered some off the field problems and he has admitted that he doesn't know what the future will hold.

"I can't think about my football right now," the 34-year-old noted. "My head and my heart say that I should stay, but I can't afford to listen to my instinct. I have to think about it.

"I have spoken on the phone to new boss Pierpaolo Bisoli, but I just need some time to make a decision."

Di Vaio is one of the Bologna players who have been questioned by authorities over the alleged use of disabled parking badges on their cars.

The ex-Juventus and Parma forward scored 19 goals in 38 League games for Bologna this season.
