The agent of Salernitana forward Massimo Coda will meet with the club’s leaders in June to discuss the future of the player. The Leeds United target was expected to leave the Serie B side in the summer, but it seems Salernitana have changed their stance on their prized asset.
Ottopagine have reported Salernitana want to keep Coda at the club for next season despite the club’s president Claudio Lotito promising the 28-year-old a move in the next window.
Due to the interest from clubs in January, Lotito informed Coda he could move in the summer if Salernitana didn’t get promotion to Serie A. This is now looking very unlikely, but the Italian club are still hoping they can convince Coda to remain at the club.
During the last window we covered reports from the Italian and the British press that Leeds United had made an offer for Coda. Beppe Galli spoke about requests coming in for his client, but didn’t go as far as revealing which clubs were interested.
Last summer it was claimed Leeds United made a last ditch attempt to sign Coda. Officials from the club travelled to Italy to hold transfer talks, but a deal never materialised.
Leeds United will face competition to sign Coda with Genoa the latest Serie A club to be linked with the player.
