Villarreal expect Rossi departure

Villarreal Coach Juan Carlos Garrido expects his club to sell Italian international Giuseppe Rossi over the summer.

After the striker was again strongly linked with Barcelona and Tottenham, Garrido is preparing himself to lose the former Manchester United and Parma player.

Speaking to AS, Garrido noted: "If we get a good offer then it will be accepted and we will thank the player for all his efforts.

"If he does leave then we will replace him with the necessary players. Rossi has played many games and scored many goals and so we have to prepare for a possible sale."

It's understood that Spurs have had a couple of offers, close to €30m, rejected by the Spanish club for Rossi over the last six months.
