Coppa: Monza to face Fiorentina

Silvio Berlusconi’s Monza shocked Serie B side Benevento to set up a tie with Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia third round.

Monza won a seven-goal thriller, surviving a late penalty to beat Benevento 4-3, and face Fiorentina in the next round.

Feralpisalo, Pisa, Perugia, Salernitana, Venezia, Crotone, Spezia, Sudtirol, Cremonese and Imolese, meanwhile, all secured Serie A ties.

So did Chievo, although the Flying Donkeys needed a penalty shootout to avoid a giant-killing at the hands of third-tier Ravenna.

Man Utd split Alexis salary with Roma?

Manchester United have offered Alexis Sanchez to Roma on loan and would be prepared to pay most of his salary, claim Italian reports.

According to Tele Radio Stereo, the Red Devils are so eager to be rid of the Chile international that they’re willing to split the wage bill with Roma.

It’s not an inconsiderable sum, as Sanchez is said to be on £350,000 per week at Old Trafford, which with bonuses and image rights takes him up to £500,000 per week.

That’s £24m per year, or approximately €26m a season.

Walace set for Udinese medical

Udinese have received the all-clear to fly Hannover midfielder Walace over for a medical, claim Sky Sport Italia.

It’s reported the cost of the operation will be in the region of €6.5m plus bonuses.

The two clubs agreed basic terms and Walace has therefore been given permission to undergo a medical.

Once that is completed and the final details are worked out, he can sign the contract.

Walace is a 24-year-old with five senior Brazil caps to his name.

KV Kortrijk target Scuffet

Udinese goalkeeper Simone Scuffet has received an offer from Belgian club KV Kortrijk, claim Sky Sport Italia.

The 23-year-old spent the last six months on loan at Kasimpasa in Turkey, playing 10 Super Lig games in which he conceded 24 goals.

Scuffet was once considered the ‘new Gigi Buffon’ as a teenager, but never quite developed at Udinese.

He is still under contract until June 2022, so it would likely be a loan with option to buy for Kortrijk.

Dortmund commentators 'racist' to Italians

Borussia Dortmund have disciplined two commentators on their official streaming service for offensive anti-Italian statements during a friendly with Udinese.

After fans protested at the coverage on their BVB.tv service, the club told reporters that BVB stadium speaker Norbert Dickel and former player Patrick Owomoyela had “gone over the line.

“Their attempt to be funny went completely wrong and was absolutely out of place. Both parties have already acknowledged their wrongdoing and pledged this will not be repeated. They have been sanctioned.”

Friendly: Udinese beat Besiktas

Udinese earned a prestigious pre-season friendly 2-0 victory over Turkish giants Besiktas and hit the woodwork twice too.

Juan Musso was behind a Muhayer Oktay strike and Kevin Lasagna didn’t make the most of a Loris Karius error.

Gary Medel went off injured for Besiktas just 30 minutes in, but former Liverpool goalkeeper Karius remained the busier of the two shot-stoppers, parrying a Rolando Mandragora free kick and Lasagna header.

Milan enquire about De Paul

Milan asked after Argentina international Rodrigo De Paul, it’s reported, but Udinese want at least €40m for the midfielder.

Agent Agustin Jimenez visited the Rossoneri headquarters yesterday to discuss Atletico Madrid forward Angel Correa.

However, he also represents De Paul, who is looking for a step up in his career after impressing in Serie A with Udinese and in the Copa America for Argentina.

The 25-year-old can play wide left or in a more central role and made a big impact in Serie A last season with nine goals and eight assists.
