Italy international Cristiano Piccini had surgery today to remove the protective plaque and screws that were inserted into his knee in August 2019.

Corradi: 'I had a deal with Milan'

Bernardo Corradi reveals he almost joined Milan rather than Valencia, but changed his mind out of ‘gratitude’ to Lazio.

The centre-forward is now a youth team coach aged 44 and hung up his boots after one final experience at the Montreal Impact in 2012.

“My football journey was different to most, because when I was 18, I was still dividing my time between the lower leagues, having to do night school and fit that around training sessions,” Corradi told Sky Sport Italia.

Alessandro Florenzi hopes to have his future sorted when ‘I return to Roma’ after his Valencia loan and ‘owes’ Francesco Totti and Daniele De Rossi.

Florenzi joined Valencia on loan for the rest of the season in January but played just five times for the Spanish side, who in turn are unlikely to pursue a permanent deal for the right-back.

“[Fonseca] is and has been an important person for me,” he said during a Facebook broadcast.

Florenzi won't remain at Valencia

Valencia are very unlikely to purchase Alessandro Florenzi outright from Roma for €12-15m, but the player insists he wouldn’t cut the experience short.

The full-back joined Valencia in January on a dry loan, so there is no agreed option to buy, meaning any full transfer would have to be negotiated.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport and Superdeporte, the asking price is €12-15m, considerably over the budget, not to mention his salary.

Florenzi: 'Only Manolas didn't believe with Barca'

Alessandro Florenzi reveals there was only one Roma player who didn’t believe they could complete the comeback with Barcelona – Kostas Manolas.

The full-back is currently on loan at Valencia, but admits he has no idea where he’ll be after June 30.

“I am at Valencia at the moment and it’s not clear yet whether FIFA will allow loans to be extended beyond then, because my contract expires in June and the season won’t end until at least July,” Florenzi told MotoGP champion Max Biaggi in an Instagram Live chat.
