Alejandro Gomez: Former Catania winger wants to return to Italy

The Argentinian winger joined Metalist on a four-year contract from Catania in the summer, but has struggled to settle in the Ukraine.

The 25-year-old was linked with Fiorentina before he signed for Metalist, with Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid also rumoured to have been interested.

Gomez has acknowledged he made a mistake in accepting Metalist's offer and he is hoping that the club will allow him to return to Serie A in the January transfer window.

"I want to play in Italy," Gomez told tuttomercatoweb.com. "I'd like to go, in particular, to Fiorentina, where I was going to go two years ago.

"Here, it's cold, the language is difficult to understand. The team is good, but the rest is bad. I have failed to settle, I'm not happy.

"Metalist's offer was advantageous, but I was wrong. I would like to move in January if there was the possibility, at the latest in June.

"The Ukrainian league has little visibility and I don't want to waste any more time.

"I have already said to Metalist I want to go. I am ready to cut my salary in order to return to a high-level championship like Italy."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
