Rossi Jumps Ship To Yellow Submarine

Rossi: Won’t be doing this in a United shirt again. 

Manchester United striker Giuseppe Rossi is set for a move to Spanish side Villareal. The Italian U21 international has slipped down the pecking order at Old Trafford and spent most of last season on loan at Newcastle and Italian side Parma. An undisclosed fee has been agreed between the two clubs with rossi set to travel for a medical and apply the finishing touches next week. Rossi is set to replace another former United striker, Diego Forlan, who moved to Atletico Madrid this summer. Villareal have beaten many interested Italian sides after Rossi impressed during his loan spell at Parma.

With Rossi gone and Smith on the verge of signing for either Newcastle or Middlesbrough Ferguson is pinning all his hopes on the arrival of Carlos Tevez and the fitness of ailing striker Louis Saha. Considering that the high court appeal date has been set for the 22nd of August there is a real risk of Manchester United falling short up front this season.
