Villarreal CF have agreed a fee to sign Italian Under-21 international striker Giuseppe Rossi from Manchester United FC.
The American-born 20-year-old spent last season on loan at Newcastle United FC and former club Parma FC, where he scored nine goals in 19 matches. Rossi failed to earn a regular place in his three campaigns at Old Trafford, making 14 first-team appearances. According to a spokesman for the English champions: "United have reached agreement with Villareal for the permanent transfer of Giuseppe Rossi for an undisclosed fee. The transfer is subject to a medical which is expected to take place in Spain tomorrow." Villarreal enter the UEFA Cup in the first round.
