Cassano short of offers

Antonio Cassano has found himself in limbo after several Serie A clubs pulled out of the race to sign him, leaving Inter as the overwhelming favourites to snap him up in the near future.
The controversial striker has been taken to court by his club Sampdoria, who want to terminate his contract after he fell out with president Riccardo Garrone.
He will either be available as a free agent, or will be sold in January if Sampdoria are not granted permission to kick him out. However, offers are seemingly few and far between.
Juventus sporting director Beppe Marotta said earlier this week that they were not interested in Cassano’s signature. Milan are unlikely to be able to afford another high-profile player’s wages, while Roma and Lazio are automatically out of the race after his previous allegiance with the former and their rivalry with the latter.
His boyhood club Bari cannot finance a move for the player, while yesterday Parma and Palermo became the latest clubs to distance themselves from the 28-year-old who has found trouble at every club whom he has played for.
Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini said yesterday: “Everybody would like Cassano, but there is no room for him here. If I didn’t have Javier Pastore then I would think about it, but I’m keeping the Argentine.”
It is now increasingly likely that Inter will snap him up in January as the Scudetto holders have looked desperately short of creativity upfront with Diego Milito and Goran Pandev out of form.
The Nerazzurri were previously interested in the player while under Roberto Mancini and President Massimo Moratti has stated that he admires the temperamental striker’s talents. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
