Fabio Quagliarella intends to play for Udinese next season, his agent has confirmed.Fabio Quagliarella's agent has confirmed that the Italian international does intend to play for Udinese next season.
The 23-year-old was owned jointly by Udinese and Sampdoria, but after bagging 13 goals for the Blucerchiati - it was expected they would seal a deal for his full ownership this summer.
However, Udinese won the blind auction to seal his signature and now he is set to turn out for them next season - instead of the likes of Juventus or Manchester United, who had been showing a strong interest.
"I am convinced he will remain at Udinese," Silvio Pagliari told the Italian press.
"I don't believe the club will send him elsewhere, at least not immediately.
"I believe they still want to let him mature and grow at the Stadio Friuli so that his value can go even higher and then sell him in the future.
"So Fabio must focus on playing a great season, confirming all the wonderful things he did with Samp."
Meanwhile, Udinese have also completed the signing of another joint ownership player in the shape of Antonio Floro Flores.
The 24-year-old spent last season in Serie B with Arezzo and grabbed 14 goals.
