Davide Santon seems to have picked up a thigh injury at the Italian U21 training camp, and we’re expecting more news today on just how bad the injury may be.
Davide Santon scoring his first goal for Newcastle on Sunday
And Davide has been interviewed by the Italian press today, and he talks about really liking things at Newcastle – and of his engagement and that his fiance is expecting their first baby.
This is what Davide told Gazzetta dello Sport today:
“I’m really happy in Newcastle,” “I like the city, the club and the atmosphere.” “I’m also engaged to Chloe and we’re expecting a baby in May. I live like a king in Newcastle and I have a contract until 2016.”
“A return to Italy? I’ve heard of the interest from Milan in me and that is really pleasing,” “I’m not sure what would happen if another Italian club came in for me, but I’d seriously think about packing my bags for Milan.”
“I owe Inter a lot,” . “I was happy there, but it is not my fault that I was born as a Milan fan…”
So does that mean that if AC Milan came in for him this summer he would want to leave Newcastle – sounds like it doesn’t it – but he’s now cost a lot more than the £5M we paid for him..
AC Milan made an inquiry about Santon last summer, and apparently during the January transfer window, but Newcastle turned down both approaches for a player who is till improving in a black and white shirt.
Davide is now a better player than he was when he first arrived from Inter-Milan in August of 2011, but he’s not yet the finished article, and still improving.
And of course he scored his first goal for the club last Sunday.
And finally, please sign this petition to get the FA to do their job, following their disappointing decision to do nothing on McManaman’s tackle on Massadio Haidara on Sunday
