Parma are the latest in a long line of clubs to exclude a rescue attempt for Antonio Cassano, who is sinking to the depths of a contract rescission at Sampdoria.
Ducali president Tommaso Ghirardi seems reluctant to throw the struggling hitman a lifeline as he gives transfer reports the short shrift.
"Cassano? I would never do something wrong to Riccardo Garrone by taking Cassano, I cannot take him on in this situation," Ghirardi told the press.
Milan require new labour up front, but letting go of Alberto Paloschi is unimaginable for Ghirardi. However, he did not exclude a move altogether.
He gave those thoughts genorous measure, claiming Paloschi is worth rock solid credit for Parma this term.
"If Milan want Paloschi to replace Filippo Inzaghi then they must ask for him because he is very important for us," he said.
