Agent: Roma midfielder Aquilani won’t join Palermo

Franco Zavaglia said on Teleradiostereo: “Zamparini is a person who really knows football, so the fact he has praised Aquilani is obviously flattering.

“But that is all there is to it. Roma have no intention of selling Aquilani and Alberto has no intention of leaving his city.”

He added: “He has a contract until 2010 and wants to win something with this side. Besides, as already mentioned, Roma have no desire to release him.”
