Technical director Arrigo Sacchi has revealed that Parma’s days of big spending on the transfer market have come to an end.

The Gialloblu have had a disappointing season and the former Milan Coach has warned that the club’s future will be built around youth development.

"The modern football club needs to start decreasing their costs. We must achieve important objectives by spending less money," he said.

"In order to manage this we need to invest in the youth system and our scouting methods. It’s important that Parma can find and sign players of real quality before other sides do."

For much of the last decade, the Parmalat backed club have often been considered as possible title contenders thanks to the big name players that they have managed to sign.

But Sacchi warned that success would not be able to be bought anymore. And insisted that Parma will need time to develop.

"In order to implement our plans we need to count on the reality of the local people. Our fans have shown an amazing amount of patience and we hope that continues," he added.

"We will work with great calmness because there is no need to rush these things. We are looking to decrease the amount of money we pay on wages and it is with this philosophy that we will make signings this summer.

"As for the Coach, we need someone that has the ability to develop and teach. A man that is capable of coping with and developing youngsters to achieve important objectives."

Atalanta youth guru Mino Favini is expected to arrive at the club this summer to oversee the youth development programme.

While former Venezia boss Cesare Prandelli is set to be announced as the new Coach at the end of this current campaign.
