Sampdoria eager to keep Cassano next season

Antonio Cassano is set to remain at Sampdoria in the future. The Italian striker has a history of falling out with his clubs and managers but in Sampdoria, he appears to have discerned the perfect home. Goal.com reports that Sampdoria are eager to sign the player on a permanent basis after the one-season loan agreement with Real Madrid wears out at the end of the season.

Antonio Cassano could never quite settle at Real Madrid after joining the club in January 2006 from AS Roma for €6 million and even fell out with the then Real manager Fabio Capello last season. In this context, it must be mentioned that Capello and Cassano had also worked together a Roma.

But relationships with Sampdoria have been pretty god. Cassano might not have been able to do much early in the season but after Christmas the player has certainly improved and have attested why he was considered as the Italian Maradona when he was a youngster at Roma. Sampdoria are reported to buy the player and keep him with them in the long run.
