Giuseppe Rossi back in Italy



Striker Giuseppe Rossi was to sign with Fiorentina and undergo medical tests Saturday, the Italian Serie A club said.

Rossi, who played five seasons with Spanish side Villareal, is recovering from knee surgery and is expected to be fit for the Florence club in March.

The 25-year-old has been sidelined since October 2011, when he tore a ligament in his right knee. He suffered a similar incident in April.

Fiorentina are said to have paid Villareal a transfer fee of 11 million euros (14 million dollars), plus 5 million euros in bonuses.

The diminutive forward is to sign a five-year contract and earn 1.5 million euros per season.

Rossi played at Manchester United, Newcastle and Parma before moving to Villareal, where he scored 82 goals in 192 games. He scored six goals in his 27 appearances with the Italian national team.Author: Alberto Cagliano
