Parma president Tommaso Ghirardi is putting down foundations for a long-term future.

Ghirardi confirmed his intention to start a long-term project at the club, with Roberto Donadoni continuing as Coach, and maybe Sebastian Giovinco in attack.

"We have half the player's contract, so I would say 50-50 possibility. With Juve we have excellent relations, at the end of the season we will meet amicably and will talk to what the ideas are.

"Parma had the merit of believing in him, to invest in him, to give him space, and you also have to credit Juve who had the power to sell him but risked only selling half and now have the certainty of owning half a major player."
