New Cagliari signing Ivan Pelizzoli has revealed Federico Marchetti is leaving the club.

The former Lokomotiv Moscow goalkeeper says he will act as No2 to Michael Agazzi, so hinting that Italy World Cup No1 Marchetti will be leaving.

"I am the second choice goalkeeper. I'll be the understudy and mentor to Agazzi and try to give him a hand, putting my experience to work," said the 30-year-old.

Marchetti is expected to sign for Portuguese giants Benfica.
