Parma: 'Juve can block Kulusevski'

Parma director Daniele Faggiano warns the lack of clarity over contracts after June 30 could mean Juventus blocking Dejan Kulusevski from playing again this season.

If the 2019-20 campaign does resume, the fixtures won’t be completed until late July, and FIFA have not yet stabilised whether contracts that expire on June 30 can be automatically extended to cover that period.

It’s particularly tricky when it comes to loan deals, such as the one that allowed Parma to keep hold of Kulusevski even after Juve purchased him in January.

Roma’s season started brightly, but since the turn of the year the club have struggled.

Faggiano: 'Parma thought about Piatek'

Parma’s director of sport Daniele Faggiano confirms the club thought about a move for former Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek in the January transfer window, but “he was out of our price range.”

Piatek left Milan after months of speculation that he was surplus to requirements following the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Pole joined Bundesliga outfit Hertha Berlin for €27m plus bonuses, but Faggiano says the Gialloblu did enquire about signing Piatek.

Faggiano: 'Our goal to keep Dejan'

Sporting director Daniele Faggiano has claimed the only option for Juventus was to let Dejan Kulusevski remain on loan at Parma.

The Swedish international moved from Atalanta to the Old Lady, but the 19-year-old will finish what he started at the Ennio Tardini this term.

His impressive form at the Crociati during the first half of the season has earned him a €35m move to the Allianz Stadium from Atalanta, but Faggiano revealed he was not willing to let the youngster leave his loan deal this winter.
