Roma ask after Suso

Roma have reportedly renewed their interest in Milan winger Suso, who has a €40m release clause in his contract.

Atalanta squatters at San Siro

Football Italia Chief Correspondent Richard Hall knows allowing Atalanta to play Champions League games at San Siro makes sense, but still feels wrong.

Both representatives from Inter’s Curva Nord and Milan’s Curva Sud were up in arms this week as it was announced that Atalanta would play their Champions League games in the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. For them, it is certainly salt into a very raw wound, but for Italian Football and Le Dea, it seems an absolute must.
