Villareal have secured the services of one Guiseppe Rossi. I've never met the young striker, but I wrote a piece on him years ago. It was actually my most-read article ever until the Beckham Era began.
Since I first wrote on Rossi, he's made it pretty clear that he wants to play for Italy, not the U.S.
The reporter grapevine of some people who knew Rossi back in his New Jersey days have told me that the guy might have considered the U.S. if the choice was left up to him, but that his dad was pretty adamant that he should play only for Italy.
