Italy swung by Haiti to play an international friendly for charity and the result was a 2-2 draw against a poor opponent. Enzo Misuraca breaks down the performance and grades some players.

It’s the end of the line for an Italian legend, as Massimo Ambrosini will not have his contract renewed with Milan. A casualty of the club’s attempt to get younger, the captain joined the team in 1995 and has played with them ever since, save one season on loan. Return to Serie A Weekly Thursday for our own analysis and memories of the Milan statesman.

FIGC President Giancarlo Abete has some harsh words for mercurial striker Mario Balotelli, according to a story in Football Italia.

Dejan Stankovic looks likely to leave Inter and is rumoured to be looking to join MLS, specifically Seattle or Toronto. Waking the Red discusses the rumour and thinks through how he will fit into MLS.

So you’re saying there’s a chance? Mario Gomez’s agent denies that the striker has signed a deal with Fiorentina, after reports pegged him as a new Viola.

Transfer rumour of the Day - Juventus keeps trying to pry Stevan Jovetic away from Fiorentina. This time, the rumour is €20m plus Luca Marrone for the striker. Seems like a steep price but with the market showing demand for the Jovetic, his selling price will be high.
