Guberti: “If there is a real project, I would stay in B with Sampdoria”
The co-ownership of Stefano Guberti will be discusses this week between Roma and Sampdoria. The midfielder himself spoke on Radio Sport explaining what would be his choice.
“I can’t say much, because both clubs haven’t talked yet, but I should first talk with Sampdoria. Catania and Chievo have talked with my agent but without placing a bid.”
“I am really interested in the plans that Luis Enrique has, I will be interesting to see how he works and how Barca became the strongest club in the world.”
“The relegation of Sampdoria wasn’t only due to the sell of Cassano and Pazzini, that would be to simplistic to say. Just as good as the fourth place wasn’t only about them. There were many problems and we failed to solve them.”
“We must wait to see what purchases Sampdoria will do, I don’t know what Atzori exactly wants. I need to know their intentions. But it is essential that Palombo testified he will be at Samp untill the end of his career. Samp is a good place to restart.”
Director of Sports Pasquale Sensibile is currently in Milan to have talks with Roma’s Walter Sabatini.
“I am in Milan at the moment and will have a meeting with Walter Sabatini in the coming days. We will find the best solution about our co-ownership with Roma for Curci and Guberti. Apart from Palombo we haven’t talked with other players, in the case of Curci and Guberti we did not do more than talk with their representatives.”
Sampdoria’s chances in keeping the services of Stefano Guberti have decreased. He was one of the few players last season playing at his normal level.
Palermo now seem to have moved their interest to the midfielder, who is co-owned by Roma and Sampdoria. Their prime target was Kevin Constant of Chievo, but that transfer seems to have failed. Guberti is willing to start from Serie B with Sampdoria, but it’s obvious that the interest from a club like Palermo, who will play in the European Cup next season, will make him at least doubt.
Cesena, Catania and Chievo also have showed their interest in Stefano Guberti.
Stefano Guberti is in a delicate situation.
He is currently co-owned by Sampdoria and Roma, but the player’s desire is to go back to the club in the capital of Italy says his agent, Claudio De Nicola: “Contact with the new club owners? Not yet, he haven’t heard from them, we are waiting and will see the development of this joint ownership.”
“I believe we will resolve this situation regarding the future of Guberti later this month. There is however still no concrete news, on the other hand the new project in Rome only started recently, so I think it is normal that there still has not been contact. But Stefano Guberti wants to return, it would be absurd to say anything else. Roma is ambitious.

Gianluca Curci is leaving Genoa. The young goalkeeper will almost certainly return to Roma, who co-owns the player with Sampdoria.
Sampdoria is looking around and would have laid eyes on Alberto Frison, goalkeeper of the year at Frosinone, who will play in the Lega Pro after relegation from Serie B.
Frison has a history at Genoa, where he arrived last year on loan from Vicenza, a team that still holds the cards of him. On that occasion however, the goalkeeper, 23 and born in Venice, never got on the field.
On June 30, Alberto Frison will be out of contract and Sampdoria could sign him for free. However they have competition of Lecce.
Youngsters Florenzi, Viviani and Caprari could be reinforcements for Samp in Serie B.
According to a report in the edition of La Reppublica, Sampdoria seems to be interested in three young talents of Roma. The players are Gianluca Caprari (18), Alessandro Florenzi (20) and Frederico Viviani (19).
Given the good relationship between the new Director of Sports Sabatini and Sampdoria, it is possible that the three players can be loaned to ripen them at Genoa in Serie B. Getting some experience might be a good showcase for the trio.
Vincenzo Montella’s team signed the season off with a comfortable three points in what is expected to be the caretaker coach’s final game in charge of the Giallorossi.
Roma has qualified for next season’s Europa League competition after running out 3-1 winners over relegated Sampdoria at the Olimpico.
Goals from Francesco Totti, Mirko Vucinic and Marco Borriello sealed the win for the hosts after being forced to come back from an early Daniele Mannini strike in the first half.
The match started in very uneventful fashion, and it was no surprise considering the fate of these two sides had already been decided. The Olimpico was scarcely filled, with much red and blue of the seats in sight.
