Daniele Galloppa (born 15 May 1985 in Rome) is an Italian footballer who plays as a midfielder for Serie A club Parma. Galloppa is a central midfield playmaker with outstanding reading of the game, excellent vision and an ability to deliver incisive passes.[citation needed]

Club career[edit]


In August 2006 he was loaned to Serie A club Ascoli.


On 30 January 2007 he was loaned to A.C. Siena. On February 17, 2007 he played his first club match for Siena against Milan.[1]

Galloppa was sold to Siena in July 2007, in co-ownership deal for €1.1M.[2] In June 2008 Siena signed him outright for €1.75M, as well as half of the card of Gianluca Curci for €1.75M; Roma signed Artur for €0.75M, Simone Loria for €2.8M in exchange.[3]


On 26 June 2009 he left Siena to join Parma in a co-ownership deal, for €5M.[4][5] Parma also signed Manuel Coppola for €3M[6] and Siena signed Francesco Parravicini for €2.5M and half of the registration rights of Reginaldo for €2.5M.[4]

Galloppa instantly became a fixture in a newly promoted side that finished in an excellent seventh position in the 2009-10 season. The following season was disrupted by injury and Galloppa was able to make only 11 appearances (six as a substitute) all season. Nevertheless, his registration was bought outright by Parma in June 2011.[7] Parma signed him for the pre-agreed price of €5M,[4] which Siena got Reginaldo also for the pre-agreed price of €2.5M[4] as well as Ângelo for €2.5M, which a year before was a free agent.[4]

On 31 July 2013 Galloppa injured himself in a friendly match against Olympique de Marseille (Anterior cruciate ligament of right knee).[8]

International career[edit]

Galloppa was the member of Italian U-20 squad in 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship. He capped for the Olympic team (U21 team) in 2008 Toulon Tournament.

On 6 June 2009 he made his senior national team debut in a friendly match against Northern Ireland.
