Coppa Italia Final at San Siro in 2021?

The 2020-21 Coppa Italia Final is reportedly scheduled for May 19 at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milan, commonly known as San Siro.

The tournament usually concludes at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, but that won’t be possible next term.

This is because Euro 2020 was bumped to next summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The opening fixture of that competition is now Italy-Turkey on June 11 at the Stadio Olimpico.

UEFA need the stadium handed over to them from May 18.

Roma begin the new Dan Friedkin era and there are several options for director of sport, including Gianluca Petrachi, Ralf Rangnick and Francesco Totti.

Piatek and Belotti on Fiorentina wish list?

Fiorentina coach Beppe Iachini reportedly wants a new striker at the Artemio Franchi, with Krzysztof Piatek and Andrea Belotti mentioned as the two targets.

Il Corriere dello Sport claims the Viola are not giving up on Torino forward Belotti, who they have admired for a long time.

But Torino could ask for over €50m for Belotti and therefore Fiorentina must have a back-up plan.

Iachini, who was confirmed to continue at the helm for 2020-21 last month, has reportedly identified Piatek as the solution.
