Udinese: 'De Paul could stay'

Udinese director Pierpaolo Marino would ‘not be surprised’ to see Rodrigo De Paul stay, as Leeds United might not be the ‘chance of a lifetime’ he’s waiting for.

The Argentina international is valued at €40m and so far the biggest proposal, from Leeds, has not yet reached that figure.

“De Paul is in love with Udine and Udinese, so unless the chance of a lifetime comes along and the club receives the right offer for his true value, I would not be surprised to see him stay,” Marino told Il Gazzettino newspaper.

The algorithm is an option that all the major leagues will take into consideration if their season is forced to conclude early due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, 16 out of 20 Serie A clubs voted against it, arguing that they should instead freeze the Scudetto, promotion and relegation, essentially wiping off this season.

Udinese: 'De Paul and Fofana out, Musso stays'

Udinese director Pierpaolo Marino confirms Rodrigo De Paul, Seko Fofana and Rolando Mandragora are likely to leave this summer, but not Juan Musso.

The club has struggled to stay out of the relegation zone over the past few seasons, which makes it more difficult to keep hold of their most talented players.

“We’ll have to completely revamp our midfield, that is for certain,” technical director Marino told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
