Rossi keeping options open

Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi has hinted that he could make a move to Serie A in January, but remained coy on which club he may join.

The Italy international has suffered two cruciate ligament injuries over the past 18 months, and has admitted that he just wants to get back playing, whether that is in Segunda Division with the Spanish team, or in Italy.

“My first goal is to return to the field of play as soon as possible,” he told Gr Parlamento. “If that's in Spain or Italy, I don't know.

“I do not know if I will go to Roma. I just want to recover and be comfortable with my knee.

“Inter? Who would not like to play for Inter,” he added. “They are a team that I like, with a project that continues to grow.”

He also commented on the Scudetto this season, claiming it is too early to say Juventus have won the title already.

“It has undoubtedly been a great championship so far, but it is too soon to be saying that no one can catch Juve.

“Napoli are doing very well - I'm happy for the team and for the city. And Lazio are playing some nice football.”

The 25-year-old then remarked on the difficulties surrounding Milan at the moment, following their poor start to the campaign.

“This sort of thing can happen to any team, but I'm sure it will pass and everything will return to normal. It is not easy to lose the players they have, but Milan have some great players that can turn things around.”
