ANDREA PETAGNA has joined on loan to Sampdoria, who have an option to buy 50% of his card next season.
With Alessandro Matri and Kaka joining the squad in the last week it was inevitable that one of the strikers will have to leave and the one is the 18-year-old Andrea Petagna who is set to start a new experience as a player of U.C. Sampdoria.
Petagna was very impressive in the pre-season and even finished as Milan’s top scorer in it (if you count the games that were played at Milanello as well) and he will hope to get the needed playing time in Genova where the attack is less dense.
“I spoke with Nocerino and Pazzini, and they advised me to choose Sampdoria,” Petagna said. “They told me good things about Delio Rossi, and I’m really happy to be at Sampdoria. My objective is to get as much playing time as possible at Sampdoria.” Petagna goes on loan but Samp have the option to buy 50% of his ownership for €3 million next summer.
Meanwhile it’s reported that Milan could make a transfer deadline day move for Davide Astori of Cagliari. It was also suggested earlier that Milan could swap Cristian Zaccardo for Paolo Cannavaro but the rumour now is Nocerino for Cana.
