Cagliari abandon Almunia

Cagliari have abandoned their bid for Manuel Almunia after the veteran goalkeeper failed three medicals.

The 37-year-old had agreed terms to become their second or even third choice in Serie A this season.

However, the free agent delayed the signature repeatedly and La Gazzetta dello Sport argues the move has been scrapped entirely.

Almunia underwent three different medicals, flying back and forth between England and Italy, but the Cagliari staff were unconvinced.

The former Arsenal goalkeeper is a free agent after his contract expired with Watford.
