In August 2010 Sau was acquired by Foggia of Lega Pro Prima Divisione by head coach Zdenek Zeman in co-ownership deals, for a peppercorn of €500, scoring 20 league goals that season. In June 2011 Foggia acquired Sau and Salvatore Burrai outright for a total of €207,000 by a closed tender mediated by Lega Serie A. However they were returned to Cagliari on 31 August 2011 for the same total price (Burrai for free and Sau for €207,000). Foggia later brought the transfer to court to claim the transfer documents were falsified.

Return to Cagliari

Sau was re-acquired by Cagliari on 31 August 2011 in a two-year contract. He played at S.S. Juve Stabia in 2011–12 Serie B season, scoring 21. This form allowed him into the Cagliari first team for 2012–13.

Sau scored both of Cagliari's goals in a 2–2 draw against Inter on 18 November 2012.

On 29 August 2014 Sau renewed his contract with Cagliari again.

International career

Sau made his international debut on 31 May 2013, coming on as a 49th-minute substitute against San Marino in a friendly 4–0 win at the Stadio Renato Dall'Ara in Bologna.
