Rossi set for Spanish switch

Recommended Posts

Manchester United have sold Giuseppe Rossi to Villarreal with the move subject to a medical.


The Spanish side have beaten a host of Italian clubs to the highly-rated striker's signature.


Rossi spent the second half of last season on loan at Parma and he impressed at the Ennio Tardini.


United have decided to let Rossi leave Old Trafford as he is well down the pecking order in Sir Alex Ferguson's plans.


The impending arrival of Carlos Tevez from West Ham would push Rossi further out of the picture for a place in the starting XI and United have opted to let the Italian Under 21 international move on.


Villarreal have paid an undisclosed fee for the diminutive forward with the player expected to undergo a medical later this week before putting the finishing touches to the move.


Rossi will help fill the void left by the departure of Diego Forlan at Villarreal next season.


Was expecting him to get a few games this season. Really didn't expect Man Utd to get rid, probably a good move for him as I think he'd do better in that league.
