Serie A 2020-21 Season Preview

This is not a normal season or transfer window, so this will not be your usual Serie A preview for the 2020-21 campaign.

COVID-19 has transformed the dates for league and European football, even postponing Euro 2020 to June 2021. The Serie A campaign kicks off on September 19, yet the summer transfer window won’t close until October 5, so everything is in a state of constant flux until that deadline has passed.

De Paul snubs Zenit for Serie A stay

The Argentina international is bound to move on this summer and the asking price is believed to be €35m.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, a proposal from Zenit St Petersburg was rejected because De Paul would prefer to continue his career in Italy.
