Report: Piatek rejects offers

Krzysztof Piatek has reportedly rejected offers from Genoa and Crystal Palace, as he wants to stay with Milan.

Piatek was signed a year ago from Genoa for €35m, but after a bright start for the Rossoneri, his form has dipped.

The striker has only scored five goals in the second half of 2019, with three of them coming from the penalty spot.

Milan have since signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic, potentially leaving the Poland international permanently on the Rossoneri bench.

Roma to sell high earners?

Roma are looking to offload Diego Perotti, Juan Jesus and potentially Alessandro Florenzi in order to lighten the pressure on their wage bill.

Pioli relives Roma nightmares

New Milan coach Stefano Pioli returns to the Olimpico on Sunday, but Vijay Rahaman notes the former Lazio boss has some bad memories of Roma.

Stefano Pioli takes his Milan team to the Stadio Olimpico to face Roma, but his record against the Giallorossi is one that may be of concern. 

Overall, the Parma-born coach has a record of just three wins, seven draws and 11 losses versus I Lupi. The situation was even more disconcerting when involved in the Rome Derby, as in charge of Lazio Pioli managed one draw and three defeats. The 54-year-old made his debut on the Milan bench with a disappointing 2-2 draw against Lecce, another team clad in yellow and red, so it seems these colours are like Kryptonite for Pioli.
