Cassano set for Ibiza move

Segunda Division B outfit UD Ibiza are set to sign veteran Italian striker Antonio Cassano according to multiple reports.

The former Real Madrid striker would link up with another experienced Serie A striker Marco Borriello, who completed his move to the Islanders this week.

The club, based in the holiday resort on the Balaeric Islands, were promoted to Spain’s third tier this summer for the first time since their formation in 2015.

Corriere della Sera and Calciomercato.com say a deal is close despite the striker not appearing in football for over a year, announcing in January that he was ‘done’ with football.

Ibiza are bankrolled by Amadeo Salvo, who is best known for his presidency of Valencia between 2013 and 2015 while they are attempting to generate great interest alongside building a team capable of promotion.

Cassano has played for Bari, Roma, Real Madrid, Sampdoria, AC Milan, Inter, Parma, Hellas Verona and the Italian national team during his colourful career.
