Bologna to keep star duo

Bologna have underlined that they have no plans to sell Alessandro Diamanti or Saphir Taider this summer.

The Italian international is a possible target for Juventus and Milan, while Inter are just one of the sides linked with the Algerian.

“Diamanti and Taider will remain with us,” Bologna Vice-President Marco Pavignani told Tele Santerno. “We most certainly have no need to sell our best players.”

The 30-year-old Diamanti, an attacking midfielder, has been a massive success at the Stadio Dall’Ara since his arrival in 2011. He’s now a regular in the Italian national squad.

Taider, meanwhile, is a former France youth international who was signed by the Italian outfit in 2011 from Grenoble.

The 21-year-old was briefly co-owned with Juventus until that 50 per cent of his contract was bought back by the Rossoblu.
