Parma striker Alberto Gilardino revealed that he is looking forward to moving to a big side and refused to rule out a move abroad.

“I’ve told (Parma president) Baraldi I’m not so sure teams will be able to spend such a high sum on me,” Gilardino told La Stampa.

“Parma defined a price, then its possible to negotiate, in the sense at the end of the market they will probably sell me for an inferior sum.

“They need that money and I’m happy my sale could help Parma’s financial situation, and then I’m happy that I can make the big jump.

“Fear of a big jump? When dreams become true they don’t make you fearful.

“I’ll have the possibility to play in a big team, and I’ll do it with humility, as usual.

“I’m ready to put myself under discussion, would I like to play with [Alessandro] Del Piero? Yes, but I’d like to play with [Andrei] Shevchenko too.

Gilardino has been linked with a move to free-spending Chelsea and he refuses to discount the possibility of moving abroad.

“Abroad excluded? Absolutely not.”
