Manchester City striker Bernardo Corradi wants to sign permanently with Parma.

The News of the World says Corradi plans to clinch a £550,000 move from City to Parma this summer.

Corradi, 31, who scored just three Premier League goals for Blues last season, has bagged five in 15 games for the Serie A outfit since joining them on loan five months ago.

The former Italy star has also been made Parma's skipper in recent weeks and City boss Sven Goran Eriksson is now happy to cash in and let Corradi remain in his homeland.
