Italy have reportedly asked Spain to cancel the March 5 friendly already agreed between the two nations.
Italy boss Cesare Prandelli, according to Marca, doesn’t see the need to play Spain for a fourth time in the space of three years.
Spain have yet to give the Italian Football Federation an answer as they first want to discuss the matter with boss Vicente Del Bosque.
