Giuseppe Rossi will have to look for another club again as Villarreal do not plan to keep him.
However, AS reports he was only ever considered in the event one of their forwards moved on in January and that does not seem likely.
Therefore, the newspaper is expecting the club and player to part again soon.
On the flip side, he has almost three months of continuous training under his belt and remains a free agent.
The 32-year-old has not played a competitive match since May 2018, when he was still on Genoa’s books.
