Serie A - Team news: Cassano in trouble again
Sampdoria forward Antonio Cassano has clashed with club bosses over not attending a charity dinner.
The row has escalated to such an extent that the Italy international could be put on the market, according to media reports.
Sampdoria, who visit Cesena on Sunday, declined to comment.
The war of words between Internazionale and Juventus has also continued after Juve, stripped of two titles in a match-fixing affair, again called for Inter's 2006 scudetto to be taken away because of new evidence over the scandal.
Inter president Massimo Moratti, who denies wrongdoing, hit back by cryptically telling reporters: "The day we enter into this sort of thing, we too will ask for two extra scudettos that we are owed from the past."
Fiorentina striker Adrian Mutu is still in line to return from a nine-months drugs ban at Catania on Sunday despite being probed by police over an alleged assault on a barman last weekend.
Fourth-placed Chievo maintained their good form with a 2-0 win over Serie B's Sassuolo, formerly coached by Chievo boss Stefano Pioli, in the Italian Cup third round on Thursday to prepare nicely for Sunday's trip to Parma.
Bari have slipped down the table in recent weeks but recorded a morale-boosting 3-1 win over second tier Torino in their cup tie on Thursday ahead of Udinese's league visit on Sunday.
