Cagliari’s Salerno admits Astori is wanted

Cagliari sporting director Nicola Salerno admitted today that Davide Astori is wanted by several clubs, including Roma, and that he is likely to leave in the summer:

The future?
“Next season we’ll start again with this year’s group, made up of good men. Our important players won’t be excluded from being sold, but only if our demands our met from the highest level. We are a group that can make a good start to Serie A.”

Astori is wanted by both Roma and Lazio?
“Yes, but he’s a guy who everybody likes. His second round was top notch. He’s a reliable player and there’s agreements both in Italy and abroad.”
