Agent doubts Rossi switch

Barcelona now appear unlikely to sign Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi, according to the player's agent.

Agent Federico Pastorello said this week that Barcelona had seen a bid for Rossi, 24, rejected and that they were awaiting further developments.

"We are aware of an offer from Barcelona, but we were also told it was considered insufficient," Pastorello had told La Graderia. "We haven't spoken to anyone for over a week. We know the Blaugrana are negotiating with Villarreal, so all we can do is wait for news from the two clubs."

However, it has since emerged that Barca are on the verge of clinching the signing of Udinese star Alexis Sanchez and, with the club having only earmarked €45 million for new signings this summer, Pastorello no longer expects his client to move to the Camp Nou.

"There have been no contacts in the last ten days. At this point it looks unlikely Rossi will join Barca," he told COMRadio. "They want Alexis Sanchez and, if they sign him for €30 million, there won't be money left for Rossi.

"Barcelona are free to sign who they want, no problem. This is football, and football doesn't end at Barca."
