Rossi "open to offers"

Giuseppe Rossi's agent has revealed the striker is in talks with Villarreal over renewing his contract - but claims he would jump at the chance to leave should a big club come calling.

Rossi has impressed since joining Villarreal from Manchester United in 2007 and has further enhanced his reputation at the Confederations Cup, scoring twice for Italy in their 3-1 defeat of the United States.

The 22-year-old has made no secret of his desire to return to Serie A and speculation is rife that Juventus are monitoring the situation.

Rossi is under contract at Villarreal until 2013 and his agent claims negotiations to extend his stay at El Madrigal have begun as they keep all their options open.

"He has a complicated situation,'' Federico Pastorello told Radio Kiss Kiss. "He's happy where he is, we are negotiating a new contract with Villarreal.

"But without a shadow of a doubt he is a player who, the moment an offer from a great club should come in, would certainly answer 'yes'.

"If this club should be Italian, all the better, because he feels Italian in every way.''

Manchester United have first refusal on their former forward if Villarreal do decide to sell Rossi.
