News this morning is Giuseppe Rossi is returning to Spain, but not to Villarreal--he's joining Celta on a one-year loan from Fiorentina. He's still only 29, scored six goals in seventeen appearances for Levante on loan last spring; this will be the last year of his contract with Fiore so presumably he'll be available as a free agent (or Celta will sign him permanently) after this season.
One of my favorite players, and for a brief period the Rossi-Nilmar attacking partnership threatened to make Villarreal the team that could challenge Real Madrid and Barcelona. Then came his injuries, then after rehab a glorious part-season with Fiorentina, then anotehr injury and since his rehab from that there hasn't really been a place for him in Florence.
We wish him well, but will hate to see him in sky blue rather than yellow.
