Toronto FC want van der Wiel

Cagliari could send full-back Gregory van der Wiel to Toronto FC for a new phase of his career in MLS.

According to Mediaset Premium, the 29-year-old Dutch right-back is the subject of an offer from the reigning Major League Soccer champions.

He only joined Cagliari in late August for €1m from Fenerbahce, having previously played for Ajax and Paris Saint-Germain.

Van der Wiel struggled to adapt to Serie A and was given only five appearances.

It’s reported Cagliari are prepared to sell, but only if they have a replacement in hand.

‘Giovinco to Inter a bad move’

Joining Inter would be a ‘bad’ move for Toronto FC star Sebastian Giovinco, according to his agent.

Giovinco recently fired Toronto to a historic treble, fuelling speculation that his time in Canada is up, with Inter mentioned as a possible destination.

However, Andrea D’Amico told Tutto Convocati: “I’d see him badly at Inter, but only because he’s very well where he is now.

“He’s made a sporting choice and a life choice, and he’s happy.”

Toronto reach MLS final

Sebastian Giovinco’s Toronto FC beat Columbus Crew 1-0 to reach the MLS Cup final for the second year in a row.

Last season the Canadian franchise went to the final at their home stadium, BMO Field, but they were defeated by the Seattle Sounders.

In the first round this season, Giovinco’s winner in New Jersey allowed Toronto to beat the New York Red Bulls on away goals.

'Italy ignored Criscito and Giovinco'

Andrea D’Amico, the agent representing Domenico Criscito and Sebastian Giovinco, complains they were “ignored” by the Italy squad.

The Azzurri lost a World Cup play-off 1-0 to Sweden, failing to reach the tournament for the first time since 1958.

“This is a sad day for sport in Italy,” D’Amico told TMW Radio.

“Obviously most of the blame goes to the Coach, but in reality it’s a bigger issue. Whenever there is a World Cup at stake, you naturally think of a Coach who has the right experienced.
