14 players who’ve received call-ups in the Roberto Mancini era have moved in the most recent transfer window. Three of these have left Serie A to continue their careers abroad while two have returned to the Italian league.
Patrick Cutrone and Moise Kean left AC Milan and Juventus for the Premier League, signing for Wolverhampton Wanderers and Everton. The two young strikers have faced off already on their first starts for their two clubs and both left on permanent deals. It was the same for Stephan El Shaarawy who left Roma for Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua.
Heading the other way, Mario Balotelli returned to Italy following spells at Nice and Marseille in France as he signed for Brescia. Davide Zappacosta left England and Chelsea for Roma on a six-month loan with an option to extend it until the end of the season. Also now at Roma, Gianluca Mancini signed from Atalanta on loan with an obligation to buy while Leonardo Spinazzola moved in an exchange deal which saw Luca Pellegrini go to Juventus and then Cagliari on loan.
Inter signed three Italy players with the midfielder Stefano Sensi and Nicolò Barella arriving from Sassuolo and Cagliari respectively and the full-back Cristiano Biraghi who joined in a swap deal with Fiorentina for Dalbert. It marks his return to the club where he came through at youth level.
Manuel Lazzari departed from SPAL in order to sign with Lazio who have the option to buy him outright. There were two moves on the final day as Simone Verdi left Napoli for Torino while Vincenzo Grifo moved in the Bundesliga from Freiburg to Hoffenheim.
