Atalanta president Ivan Ruggeri admits negotiations with Palermo for defender Hernan Dellafiore have broken down.

"Palermo is not prepared to sell Dellafiore, we would like the player in co-ownership," said Ruggeri. "However, the negotiations for Dellafiore are completely off because of the demand that the Rosanero leadership have for Gianpaolo Bellini.

"With just two days left before the market closes, it would be impossible to replace a player of the value of Bellini. Therefore we cannot consider losing him."
