Genoa After Villarreal's Giuseppe Rossi

The Grifoni want to strengthen their squad after having agreed terms with Inter to sell Diego Milito and Thiago Motta...
Genoa president, Enrico Preziosi recently promised that the money from the sale of Milito and Motta would be used to strengthen the team ahead of next season and, according to the latest transfer reports, he is sticking to his word.

After signing Atalanta's Sergio Floccari, Cagliari's Robert Acquafresca (who will be sent out on loan to Parma) and, almost certainly, Hernan Crespo from Inter, the Rossoblu are all set to bring Giuseppe Rossi back to Italy.

According to, Preziosi has a very good rapport with the player's agent, Federico Pastorello, and this could pave the way for the negotiations to take off.

What makes this transfer possible is the fact that, following the transfers of Milito and Motta, the Grifoni will have enough cash to pay for Rossi, with Villarreal needing to sell some of their players due to their bad financial situation.

In the past Rossi has also been linked with Juventus, but now he looks to be joining a growing band of stars lining up at an ambitious Genoa.
