Inter use Gabigol for Berardi bid

Inter could offer Gabriel ‘Gabigol’ Barbosa to Sassuolo on loan as part of their bid for Domenico Berardi.

Mediaset Premium claim that the Nerazzurri are trying to resolve two problems in one fell swoop.

Gabigol needs more playing time after not managing a single Serie A start since his €29.5m transfer from Santos.

Berardi has long been a transfer target for the San Siro side, especially as he has never disguised that he’s an Inter supporter.

Napoli meeting for Berardi

Multiple sources claim Napoli have contacted Sassuolo to ask about bringing in Domenico Berardi, but only from June 2018.

The Italy Under-21 international has been linked with numerous clubs this summer, including Inter and Eusebio Di Francesco’s Roma.

According to Sky Sport Italia and Sportitalia, Napoli have entered the race with today’s meeting between director Cristiano Giuntoli and Berardi’s agent.

The plan would be to get a deal in place ahead of next summer, leaving him to develop for another season at the Mapei Stadium.

Golden Generation will come good

Italy’s U-21s may have come up short in Poland, but Adam Summerton believes their European Championship experience will pay future dividends.

I liked Luigi Di Biagio’s pre-tournament assertion that Italy’s U-21s were the country’s best group at that level for 20 years, despite critics later suggesting he’d set himself up for a fall. It was clever and showed a clear understanding of both his own development role and the potential importance of this group to the senior set-up - in the very near future in some cases.

Roma look to Deulofeu

Roma are looking towards Gerard Deulofeu more than Sassuolo’s Domenico Berardi to replace Mohamed Salah, it’s reported.

Salah was sold to Liverpool for €42m plus €8m in performance-related bonuses.

Berardi had been the natural heir, especially after Coach Eusebio Di Francesco took over, but Sassuolo’s asking price of over €25m is proving tricky.

Instead, Mediaset Premium claim that Roma are turning their attention towards Deulofeu instead.

Milan want Berardi if Suso goes

Milan are reportedly considering a move for Sassuolo’s Domenico Berardi, but only if Suso leaves.

The Italian international has been heavily linked with Roma, not least because former Neroverdi Coach Eusebio Di Francesco has taken over on the bench.

However, Sassuolo owner Giampiero Squinzi is asking for €50m to sell their star player, and so far the Giallorossi are unwilling to meet that.

According to SportItalia, the Diavolo could take advantage of that hesitancy, but Berardi isn’t a priority target at the moment.

U21: Azzurrini find their shape

The Azzurrini were ultimately fortunate a 1-0 win over Germany was enough, but can be particularly suited to facing Spain.

Words: Tom Scholes

Italy needed something special to reach the European Under-21 Championship semi-final and that something was Denmark beating the Czech Republic. The Azzurrini were never going to beat this Germany 3-1, but on the face of that performance, their style might be more suited to facing Spain than any other side.

Sassuolo 'keep Acerbi and Berardi'

Sassuolo confirm they have rejected a Galatasaray offer for Francesco Acerbi and “want to keep” both the defender and Domenico Berardi.

“It’s true, Galatasaray made a proposal, but we did not accept it,” director of sport Giovanni Carnevali told Sky Sport Italia.

“We want to keep him with us next season, but clearly many things must be decided by the player. We certainly won’t accept offers that are below his real worth.”

U21: Azzurrini crumble to Czech Rep

Italy’s chances of reaching the European Under-21 Championship semi-finals hang by a thread after a shock 3-1 defeat to the Czech Republic.

They now have to beat Germany in the final group game and even that might not be enough, as only the group winners are guaranteed qualification. Just the best runners-up from the three groups will get that fourth spot in the semis.

Roma seek Shaqiri for Salah

Stoke City’s Xherdan Shaqiri has emerged as a candidate to replace Mohamed Salah at Roma, but Sassuolo pair Gregoire Defrel and Domenico Berardi are also options.

Salah is in England and expected to undergo a medical with Liverpool tomorrow ahead of his €45m move.

The Giallorossi need a replacement and Shaqiri has been mentioned by La Gazzetta dello Sport as an intriguing idea.
