Yeah we have an ongoing relationship with them. Last summer we sent many young players (15-18) to their youth sides on loan, some permanently, and we usually take a couple of their best in exchange. The best one is Cristian Bunino,
Depends hugely on how well he heals, in terms of Mattiello, yet Chievo obviously thought he was worth keeping on loan so his promise beforehand must have been very encouraging indeed. A double fracture is probably less harsh than an ACL, and the surgeon was happy with the job (as were Chievo) so let us retain some hope for Federico. Other than which, I wouldn't discount Leali just yet, he has such raw natural talent...just needs to work on his composure, from what I gather. Brignoli had wonderful reports last term at Ternana, is another one to watch. Just needs games to prove himself at a higher level.
I will be also interested to see where Sakor, Marzouk and Pol Garcia end up.
Donis was one of the few consistent performers in the primavera last term. Had a decent partnership with Marzouk. And has since headed to Swizterland to join up with that wily old fox, Zemen. At least we can be assured that if he does play, he will be focused on his offensive talents. Worth keeping an eye on the Greek lad.
Should be noted that our primavera last term was very young indeed. Many of this season's squad have already played at U19 level, which should stand us in good stead for a much better season. Although...Grosso remains their boss.
