Albanian oil magnate Rezart Taci has confirmed he's dropped takeover talks with Bologna.

"The negotiations with the Menarinis has been terminated and we decided not to go ahead with the agreement we reached 10 days ago, for reasons I cannot divulge," Taçi told Sky Italia.

"It is not down to economic issues. We looked at the club's books, but I cannot divulge any information.

"My intention is to participate in Serie A - with or without Bologna." Roma striker Mirko Vucinic has undergone successful knee surgery.

"A bone fragment the size of a bean was removed. The operation lasted around five minutes," explained Professor Pierpaolo Mariani.

"Vucinic will be released from the clinic tomorrow, he will be available for the Coach in around 15-20 days."
