Roberto Donadoni: A wanted man

Roberto Donadoni: A wanted man

Donadoni recently admitted he would find it hard to turn down an approach from the club he spent much of his playing career with, and he also said he feels ready to make the step up to such a big club.

While Ghirardi does not doubt his acumen and ability to take charge of the Rossoneri, he says that opportunity will just have to wait.

"One day, I do hope he gets to coach Milan, but not now," he said.

"Donadoni still has work to finish here at Parma and I have never had any doubts in him, not even before we renewed his contract."

Donadoni has led Parma through a comfortable season with little or no relegation fears.

"And once we had ensured our survival, we continued to collect points and now we are sure of 10th place," continued Ghirardi on Radio Sportiva.

"That is what we were hoping for since we always want to improve. My intentions were to bring stability to this club and we have achieved that in each of the past four years, which is something to be proud about."

Bologna are also proud to have avoided relegation to Serie B, and their coach Stefano Pioli says his side are now keen to end the season on an even higher note.

"We have achieved safety, but now we want to get the best out of these last two matches," he said after his side's 3-0 defeat to Napoli in midweek, a result he put down to "tiredness."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
