Sampdoria admit they are tempted to make a move for Real Madrid outcast Antonio Cassano - if they can find the money to fund a deal.

Cassano, who has fallen out with almost every coach he has worked with, has been sidelined by Real with little interest shown by most European clubs in taking a risk on a player whose undoubted talent has been overshadowed by his temperament.

However, Beppe Marotta, Samp´s general manager, admitted the Genoa-based outfit would love to sign the 25-year-old - if the price is right, telling the club´s website "I want to make one thing clear and that is that we are talking about a very tempting transfer but also an operation that is way, way outside our budget."
