Italy Coach Cesare Prandelli Advises Sampdoria's Antonio Cassano To Join Parma - Report

Sampdoria striker Antonio Cassano could join Parma under instruction from Italy coach Cesare Prandelli.

Cassano is expected to leave the Genoa-based club once a decision is made over his contract rescission case - the hearing takes place on Friday with the outcome announced a week later.

Il Secolo XIX reports Prandelli held a secret meeting with the player and told him to join former club Parma.

The Italy coach's son Nicolo is part of Parma's technical staff, giving him the chance to follow his progress closely.

On Tuesday Prandelli said he was waiting for Cassano to return as soon as possible. And Parma could be the backing he needs to maintain an effective comeback.

Fiorentina and Inter are also following the 28-year-old Italian.
