Cagliari president Massimo Cellino has sensationally announced that star players such as Radja Nainggolan and Davide Astori are free to leave the club.
Both players have been repeatedly linked with moves away from the Sant'Elia, but the Sardinian outfit have previously rebuffed all previous attempts to acquire their services.
However, Cellino, having been driven into a rage by the fact that Cagliari are forced to keep large sections of their stadium closed because of ongoing safety issues, has now claimed that all of his most prized assests will be allowed to leave.
"All the players are free to go; what the f*** are they still doing in this lousy stadium," the Rossoblu supremo told reporters. "We play in a stadium worthy of Serie C.
"[Will Nainggolan leave in January?] No, he can leave in December, I tell you. He has six or seven clubs looking for him and I can’t keep hold of him again.
"It’s not an issue of money, as even if they give me less than his price tag, he’ll still go. If he doesn’t want to go, I’ll send him away.
"[Does that apply to Astori too?] It applies to everyone. I don’t rule anybody out. From tomorrow, anyone who wants to leave Cagliari is free to do so.”
