Ghirardi on Parma-Milan rumours

Parma chief Tommaso Ghirardi has cooled reports of transfer talks with Milan concerning Marco Parolo, Riccardo Saponara and Bryan Cristante.

There have been suggestions that Parolo could move to San Siro in January in exchange for the two youngsters.

“Saponara is co-owned with us and we will discuss him as he isn’t playing a lot,” Ghirardi commented. “I don’t know about the rest though. There have been no requests…

“Parolo is a player who we would not want to lose, but when big clubs make an offer then you also have to listen to what the player wants.

“I wouldn’t want to sell anyone, but we have sold our most prized assets in the past. First, though, you have to understand whether big clubs are really interested.”

Milan chief Adriano Galliani has denied interest in the Italian international.
