It’s looking like my prediction of Parma’s regression will be undone before Serie A seriously starts. First Sebastian Giovinco looks much better than I thought, and now another midfielder who holds the high hopes of Azzurri faithful has moved to the Crusaders.â†µ
Antonio Candreva has been sent on loan from Udinese to Parma, with the yellow and blue having the option to buy the 23-year-old at year’s end.â†µ
Candreva spent last season on lost at Juventus, who surprisingly failed to exercise their option to buy. He has been capped twice by the Italian national team.
