Bianchi shown Toro exit

Serie B sleeping giants Torino have told star striker Rolando Bianchi to find a new club, Tuttosport are suggesting.

According to the Turin daily, the outfit's sporting director Gianluca Petrachi yesterday informed Bianchi that he had no future at the club.

It is claimed that the Granata want to start a new chapter under new boss Giampiero Ventura which will see all the players left from their 2008-09 Serie A campaign sold.

As a result, Andrea Gasbarroni, Francesco Pratali and Paolo Zanetti seem set for a summer exit too.

It would be a surprise if Toro sacrificed Bianchi given the amount of goals he has scored since his 2008 arrival from Lazio.

Bianchi, who spent a year in England with Manchester City, has grabbed 54 League goals for the club – including play-off strikes – over the last three seasons.

The 28-year-old ended the last campaign with 19 goals from 33 Serie B matches. Just three of those were penalties.
