Genoa and Samp attend State funeral

Genoa and Sampdoria players have arrived together to attend the State funerals of the Morandi bridge collapse victims, as the death toll rose to 41.

Another three bodies were recovered from the rubble overnight, two parents and their nine-year-old daughter, leaving only one person still unaccounted for.

The Liguria landmark Ponte Morandi collapsed amid a storm and possible lightning bolts, though the cause of the tragedy is still unclear.

‘No problem for Bertolacci’

Genoa President Enrico Preziosi assures “we won’t have problems with Milan” with regard to a permanent deal for Andrea Bertolacci.

The midfielder spent last season on loan with the Grifone, but it has been suggested that negotiations had stalled over a permanent deal.

“Despite what they say, we won’t have problems with Milan for Bertolacci,” Preziosi told Telenord.

“I’m talking to [Coach Davide] Ballardini, he told me what he wants, he told me what he wants and we’re trying to satisfy him.”

Preziosi: ‘Younes out for months’

Genoa President Enrico Preziosi claims Amin Younes, who joins Napoli on July 1, “will be out for seven or eight months” with an injury.

The German international signed a pre-contract agreement with the Partenopei in January, but then appeared to try to back out of the move.

He was in Naples in January with a view to moving the transfer forward, but he returned to Ajax, ostensibly to be closer to his grandfather.

Younes’ behaviour means he almost certainly has no future at the San Paolo, so he could be sold or loaned out.

Sky and Perform win Serie A rights

Sky Sport Italia and Perform have won the TV rights to Serie A for 2018-21 for €973m per year after Mediaset pulled out.

The bidding war had to resume after Mediapro saw their initial victory wiped out on appeal due to anti-trust laws.

Mediaset Premium had also been in talks for the rights today, but pulled out after the first round of bids.

“The rights have been assigned to Sky and Perform, while Mediaset did not present an offer,” confirmed Genoa President Enrico Preziosi.

‘ADL to blame for Perin breakdown’

Genoa President Enrico Preziosi claims Aurelio De Laurentiis, not Maurizio Sarri, was to blame for Napoli missing out on Mattia Perin.

Genoa sporting director Giorgio Perinetti claimed over the weekend that Sarri wanted a goalkeeper with ‘better feet’ than Perin, who has since joined Juventus, but Preziosi made it clear who the buck lay with.

“Sarri didn’t want Perin? No, it wasn’t like that,” he told 7 Gold.

Genoa eye Mandragora and Sturaro

Genoa are eager to bring Rolando Mandragora and Stefano Sturaro back from Juventus, according to Sky Sport Italia.

Grifone President Enrico Preziosi confirmed today that they were interested in a loan deal with Mandragora.

The 20-year-old midfielder impressed during his loan spell at Crotone and earned his first senior Italy cap, so would relish more playing time at his first club.

Preziosi: 'Genoa want Mandragora'

Genoa President Enrico Preziosi confirmed talks for Federico Marchetti and Rolando Mandragora, but “Roma and Lazio didn’t ask for Diego Laxalt.”

The Grifone are at the centre of several big transfer stories, including goalkeeper Mattia Perin, who completed his medical with Juventus today.

“Perin has the quality to become the top goalkeeper at Juventus and in my view he is among the best shot-stoppers in the world,” Preziosi told reporters outside the Lega Serie A meeting.
