ROME: Italy's footballers are set to sign an agreement with club presidents tomorrow to end the current strike and allow the domestic season to start on September 9, a source close to the players' union revealed. The agreement is, however, only believed to be a temporary one that will allow football to be played while the different parties continue to discuss the terms of a new labour agreement. The dispute has been ongoing since last November, and the opening weekend of the season was postponed after the strike was called.
