Parma Will Not Sell Their Jewels – General Manager Pietro Leonardi

The club's director confirmed that none of their best players will leave in January. The Ducali want to maintain a strong team until the end of this Serie A campaign...
Parma general manager Pietro Leonardi has categorically denied that the club will be selling their best players during the January transfer window.

The Gialloblu fans were worrying that the team could be dismantled during the transfer market, but Leonardi's words will surely reassure them.

"In January we will not be selling any of our jewels," the Crociati's director told sportmediaset.it.

"I say it because the rumours of the past days - about [McDonald] Mariga, [Daniele] Galloppa and [Valeri] Bojinov leaving the team - are destabilising the environment.

"These things are worrying the players, especially the younger ones who need certainties, and even our fans. Once the transfer market resumes, Parma will increase the value of the club's wealth with the players who are used less."

Parma have had a fantastic season so far in Serie A. They currently stand in sixth place along with Napoli and Genoa, boasting 17 points from 11 games played, just two points behind a Champions League spot.
