Posted by Kevin Walker Friday, March 5, 2021

Antonio Cassano (Sampdoria)
Coach Gigi Del Neri says Antonio Cassano is back in his squad for this weekend's match against Lazio, but that it's unlikely he'll play. “Sure Cassano could be selected, but it will take between 15 and 20 days before he will be completely better” said Del Neri.

Jorge Andres Martinez (Catania)
The Sicilian club explains it will not part with the Uruguyan forward for less than 12 million Euros.

Vincenzo Iaquinta (Juventus)
Iaquinta (knee) is ready to play and could return this weekend against Fiorentina after a four-month layoff.

Alexis Sanchez (Udinese)
The Chilean midfielder could miss a significant amount of time after he suffered ligament damage to his right knee in a 3-2 weekend loss to Inter.

Cristian Eugen Chivu (Internazionale)
The Romanian defender (skull fracture) is expected to return to action in April.

Gianluca Zambrotta (AC Milan)
Zambrotta (calf) is expected to return to action for the first time since December this weekend or next week against Manchester United.

Amantino Mancini (on loan with AC Milan)
Mancini has good words for his past employer AS Roma, surprised?

"In the capital, things were very good - there I made my story as a footballer, I gave it my best and went from an almost unknown to becoming an important player" said Mancini.

The Brazilian was originally signed to Milan rival Inter with the Jose Mourinho appointment 2 years ago. However, Mancini has endured an extended period on the bench after being frozen out of first squad action, failing to make Jose Mourinho's starting XI.

Last month the player moved to fierce Inter rivals A.C. Milan, for the remainder of the 09-10 season, with an option for the Rossoneri to acquire half of the player's rights at the end of his loan spell.
