No moves for Gila or Cassano

Italian internationals Alberto Gilardino and Antonio Cassano will probably remain at their present clubs this summer.

The duo have both been linked with summer moves, but their agent, Beppe Bozzo, believes they'll stay at Fiorentina and Milan respectively.

"I can deny claims that there are negotiations going on with Genoa with regard to Gilardino," Bozzo told Sportitalia.

"With all probability, Alberto will be staying with Fiorentina. And it's the same situation with Cassano at Milan."

Gilardino recently conceded that he could leave the Stadio Artemio Franchi ahead of the 2011-12 campaign.

"I don't know if I will stay," he stated on Monday. "I don't want to say one thing and then do another. The transfer market is still open for some time yet.

"I've always said that I am happy in Florence, but there are a few things that need to be looked at.

"One is my contract. I'll speak with the club and make a decision with them seeing as I am valued at €18m and I have two years left to run on it."

Cassano has been paired with a Rossonero exit as he isn't guaranteed first team football ahead of the 2012 European Championship.
