With the club looking almost certain to be relegated to Seria B, some of the Junvetus big stars will be walking out of th club. The latest names to be mentiones are Buffon and Cannavaro. The most expensive goalkeeper in the world is said to be currently in negotiations with Arsenal, but has also mentioned that he prefers to stay in Italy. Cannavaro is also linked with another London club, Chelsea. The Italian press has mentioned that Mourinho is looking to strengthen his back-line and Cannavaro has been mentioned as a possibility.AC Milan star Nesta has also been linked with a move to Chelsea, with William Gallas tipped to move in the other direction as part of the deal. The 30-year-old would also cost in the region of £12.5million. Cannavaro is also a possibility with reports in Italy claiming Juventus have agreed a £15million deal with the Blues.


The Magpies are already looking for a replacement for the injured Owen. Along with long time target Dirk Kuyt, who recently said that he will now start negotiating a move to the Premiership, Darrent Bent is also on Newcastle’s target list, but they will face competition from Tottenham. Speaking of which, Newcastle will also try bidding for Spurs forward Jermain Defoe.

Real Madrid

Real Madrid presidential candidate Lorenzo Sanz has said that he has struck deals with Adriano and an ‘Englishman’, possibly Ashley Cole. But the deal will also see Real Madrid players moving the other way. In total, Sanz has signed four players, two from Inter Milan (one of them is Adriano), an Englishman, and a Portuguese player.
With [Inter president] Massimo Moratti, I have reached an agreement for an exchange of players between Real Madrid and Inter,” revealed Sanz.

Those four players are, not to give many clues, two from Inter, another one is Portuguese and the fourth is English.

Sanz will reveal the players on Thursday.

On Thursday we will present the four contracts with the clubs and players to demonstrate that we have made signings, not like the others.

Since presidential candidate Juan Miguel Villar,  has already stated that he will bring Manchester United winger Christiano Ronaldo, who also approved a move to Madrid, Sanz’s Portugues player is possibly Chelsea’s Ricardo Carvalho.

The rest..

Arsenal have offered a contract to Tunisia World Cup defender Hatem Trabelsi according to the player’s agent, whilst the right back has also called time on his international career. Arsenge Wenger also revealed that he is keen on Dutch international Dirk Kuyt.

Benfica are paving the way for Simao for a Summer transfer, which might be good news for Liverpool as Benfica might drop their value a little bit.

Maxim Kalinichenko is a £3.5m target for Manchester United, according to reports in Russia. Kalinichenko has been one of the stars of Ukraine’s advance to the World Cup quarter-finals, and is said to have caught the eye of Old Trafford boss Sir Alex Ferguson. His club Spartak Moscow have already said he will not go for less than £3.5m.

He won’t stay at Barcelona. They said that they will part with him no matter how he performs in the world cup.
