Parma chief Pietro Leonardi is pleased with their early market business.

Parma signed two players on Friday, securing Jonathan Biabiany and Ishak Belfodil outright.

“Parma proved this is a solid club that wants to invest. It isn’t a port of call. We only want motivated people who are happy to be here and play with pride. Anyone else can go...”

Leonardi was asked whether this was a message to Antonio Cassano, who has been linked with a return to Sampdoria.

“Yesterday he sent me a text message that said: ‘Forza Parma.’ And we say Forza Cassano.”
