Daniele Galloppa (born 15 May 1985) is an Italian footballer who plays as a midfielder for Serie B club Modena. Galloppa is a central midfield playmaker with outstanding reading of the game, excellent vision and an ability to deliver incisive passes. Despite his ability and reputation as a promising prospect in Italian football, he has struggled with several injuries throughout his career.
Galloppa was sold to Siena on 9 July 2007, in a co-ownership deal for €1.1 million. In June 2008 Siena signed the remain 50% registration rights of Galloppa for €1.75M; 50% registration rights of Gianluca Curci for €1.75M; Roma signed keeper Artur for €750,000, Simone Loria for €2.8 million in exchange. Thus only €50,000 cash was involved.
On 26 June 2009 he left Siena to join Parma in a co-ownership deal, for €5M. Parma also signed Manuel Coppola for €3M and Siena signed Francesco Parravicini for €2.5M and half of the registration rights of Reginaldo for €2.5M. This only €3 million cash was involved in the mega swap deals.
Galloppa instantly became a fixture in a newly promoted side that finished in an excellent seventh position in the 2009–10 season. In June 2010 the co-ownership between Parma and Siena on Galloppa and Reginaldo were renewed. The following season was disrupted by an anterior cruciate ligament injury to his left knee he sustained in a pre-season friendly against Shakhtar Donetsk on 10 August 2010, which kept him out until January 2011; as a result 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. Parma signed him for the pre-agreed price of €5M, which Siena got Reginaldo also for the pre-agreed price of €2.5M as well as full registration rights of Ângelo for €2.5M, which a year before was a free agent.
On 21 October 2012, Galloppa injured the cruciate ligament of his left knee once again in a league match against Sampdoria, which ruled him out for the remainder of the season; he turned to action in the summer of 2013, in time for Parma's summer training camp. On 31 July 2013 Galloppa injured himself in a friendly match against Olympique de Marseille, rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament of his right knee. He returned to action for the final match of the 2013–14 season. The next season, Galloppa made 19 appearances for Parma.
Following Parma's bankruptcy, on 8 September 2015 Galloppa was signed by Serie B club Modena F.C., joining Hernán Crespo at the side, who had previously coached him at Parma. After making 15 appearances during the first half of the 2015–16 season, on 7 February 2016, Galloppa suffered yet another injury to the cruciate ligament of his right knee in a 0–0 home draw against Cesena, which ruled him out for the remainder of the season; this was his fourth major knee injury in five years.
Galloppa was the member of Italian U-20 squad at the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship. He scored two goals in the tournament, one in Italy's final match of the group stage on 18 June, a 4–1 win against Canada, and one in a 3–1 win against the United States in the round of 16, on 21 June, as Italy reached the quarter-finals of the tournament, only to lose to Morocco on penalties; Galloppa missed Italy's first penalty in the resulting shoot-out. He was later also capped for the Olympic U-21 team at the 2008 Toulon Tournament, which the Italians proceded to win.
On 6 June 2009 he made his senior national team debut in a friendly match in Pisa against Northern Ireland, coming on as a substitue in the 3–0 win. He made his second appearance for Italy later that year, in a 1–0 friendly home win against Sweden in Cesena, on 18 November.
