Bianchi-Miccoli swap in the works

Rolando Bianchi “has three offers and could leave Torino,” confirmed his agent, as reports emerge of a swap with Palermo’s Fabrizio Miccoli.

Bianchi is out of contract at the end of the season and has so far failed to agree a new deal with the Granata.

“I can confirm there have been offers from Hoffenheim and Palermo,” agent Riccardo Bianchi told Sky Sport Italia.

“There is a possibility he could leave Torino, as it will be their last chance to get money out of his departure.

“I know of the offer from Hoffenheim, while Palermo have already made a move, though I don’t know the details exactly.

“Rolando loves and identifies with Torino. If our projects do not coincide with those of the club, then we will find a solution. Could he go abroad? We have no limits.”

There are reports that Palermo could swap 29-year-old Bianchi for 33-year-old Miccoli, who is also coming to the end of his contract.

It is claimed the clubs are negotiating to whittle down the €2m between offer and demand.
