Lightening strikes twice for Parma who lands Porto’s Silvestre Varela and Christian Rodriguez of Atletico Madrid
Parma has been looking to bolster its midfield in hopes of making an unlikely run at staving off relegation. After the addition of Nocerino, the Emilian club added two stars to their midfield: Porto’s Portuguese winger Silvestre Varela and Uruguayan Christian Rodriguez of Atletico Madrid.
The news has been announced on their official website, which specifies that the club has loaned both players from the respective clubs.
In the first half of the season, 29 year-old Varela had collected 10 appearances (2 goals and 3 assists) on loan at West Bromwich Albion, while 29 year-old Rodriguez had collected 11 appearances at Atletico Madrid, scoring one goal.
Varela will wear number 26 while Rodriguez will wear number 24 for the crociati.
