Udinese react to Inzaghi rumour

Udinese have cooled suggestions that they could make a bid for Milan veteran Pippo Inzaghi.

"I've read that story too, but it is just fantasy football for now," Udinese President Franco Soldati told TMW on Friday.

"He's a footballer who doesn't really come close to our footballing philosophy when it comes to buying players.

"It would be an extremely difficult move to pull off even if he's a player who I admire very much," added the Friuli chief.

"We are a small club from the provinces and we can't take strides that are bigger than our steps. We have to work with total balance."

The former Italian international, now 38, is contracted to the San Siro giants until June 2012. He's also been paired with a move to former club Parma.

Udinese's transfer policy revolves around unearthing stars of the future before selling them on for significant fees.
