Giuseppe Rossi is seen as ‘the one that got away’ considering the great expectations we had on him. Whilst securing a nice transfer fee of 6.7 million, the fans were keen to keep a hold of him.
He has thrived at Villarreal, leaving us rather interested in supposed option we have to buy him back.
We have been drawn in the same group as the Spanish club, who finished 2nd last season, meaning we will be reunited with Rossi. He has today spoken about his excitement to return.
“The game against Manchester will be a great encounter against the best team in the world and for me it’s going to be special for having played there,” Rossi said. “Villarreal can’t wait to play such a game.”
How do you think Rossi will be greeted when he comes to Old Trafford next week?
