Cagliari seem to have pulled out of the race to sign Italian international Marco Parolo from Cesena.
The Rossoblu have been in contact with the Sea Horses, but the valuation of the midfielder seems to have put them off.
"Why should I spend €8m on Parolo when we already have Davide Biondini in the squad?" asked President Massimo Cellino.
The Sardinian outfit are understood to have made a €4.5m offer to Cesena for the 26-year-old last week.
The Azzurri player was only signed outright by the Dino Manuzzi outfit this month after they netted Chievo's half share in the individual.
Parolo had a stellar first season in the top flight and it is understood that Genoa, Lazio and Fiorentina are pondering bids for him.
