Cagliari are the real deal

With a head-to-head for top four status with Lazio this evening, Marcello Cossali-Francis assures Cagliari are not a fluke.

President Tommaso Giulini felt the sting of last term’s failure. Narrowly avoiding relegation, dealing with protests from fans and considered a dumping ground for has-beens and never-weres. Something radical had to be done in order to prevent even flirting with demotion in this extremely special year.

Juventus shortage of full-backs

Juventus have barely any available full-backs against SPAL this weekend, as Alex Sandro has flown to Brazil on compassionate leave.

The Bianconeri were already dealing with a huge injury crisis that ruled out Mattia De Sciglio, Danilo, Douglas Costa, Marko Pjaca and Giorgio Chiellini.

Alex Sandro has now been given permission to fly back to Brazil following the tragic death of his father.

Juan Cuadrado has been used so far as a makeshift right-back, but even that might not be enough to fill the gaps.

Italy: Pellegrini in, Kean & Zaniolo out

Italy have called up Luca Pellegrini and Stephan El Shaarawy for September’s Euro 2020 qualifiers, but Cristiano Biraghi, Moise Kean and Nicolo Zaniolo are out.

There is also a place for El Shaarawy, despite the winger’s decision to leave Europe for Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua earlier in the summer.

However, Biraghi is left out just a day after he completed a return to Inter.

Official: Luca Pellegrini joins Cagliari

Cagliari have officially signed Luca Pellegrini on loan from Juventus and announced the news via a curious viral video, including Amazon assistant Alexa.

It is a return to Sardinia for the left-back, who had been on loan from Roma in January-June 2019, making 12 competitive appearances, with one assist.

Roma sold the 20-year-old to Juventus for €22m as part of the Leonardo Spinazzola deal.

He has now been sent back to the Sardegna Arena on a dry loan – without an option to buy – until June 2020.
