Cesena’s Rino Foschi says fans won’t be deluded to expect ‘big purchases’, but names from Juventus, Milan and Atalanta may arrive.
The Cavallucci Marini are preparing for life back in Serie A next season after securing promotion this week with victory in the Serie B play-offs.
For their sporting director, however, work to strengthen the squad will be set only to a sensible budget.
“We will start with [Coach Pierpaolo] Bisoli - the promotion is to the merit of all the staff,” Foschi has told the Gazzetta dello Sport this week.
“The promotion back to Serie A will help us pay off the debts, whilst the fans are not deluded - we will not be making any big purchases.
“Some youngsters and some good long-term investments, those, yes. And the wage bill will increase from €5m to a maximum of €9m. Marilungo was the winter arrival that made the difference.
“Where will our reinforcements come from? I do not lack friendships - I can take from Juventus, Milan and Atalanta the non-EU internationals that they cannot find space for.
“Massimo Ambrosini? He is from the Romagna region, he could consider ending his career in Serie A with Cesena.
“[Milan forward] Andrea Petagna? He is a player that we really like, from even in Serie B. We will see how to move, he knows that I respect him. We will evaluate any possibility of picking him up.”
