Mari set for permanent move

Pablo Mari’s move from Arsenal to Monza is likely to become permanent at the end of the season.

The Spaniard joined the newly promoted Serie A club at the start of the season on loan, with an agreement for the deal to become permanent should they avoid relegation.

They are currently well on course to achieve that, lying tenth in the table with 32 points, 14 points clear of the drop zone.

Mari has resumed playing again after being involved in a frightening incident shortly after arriving in Italy. He was shopping in a local supermarket with his wife and son, when a man attacked staff and customers with a knife.

A supermarket employee was killed in the incident, whilst Mari himself was stabbed in the back, although fortunately his injuries were non life-theratening.

The reported agreed transfer fee is £5.9 million.

Monza are owned by former Italian Prime Minister and AC Milan patron Silvio Berlosconi.
