The 2009-2010 Serie A season saw a large amount of attrition. Seventeen managerial changes occurred during the season, with countless more preseason and postseason moves.
Some players had terrible seasons after big-money moves (Felipe Melo) while others rediscovered their form (Giampaolo Pazzini). Although Inter expectedly captured the Scudetto, Roma’s close pursuit in the end stages made the season interesting.
Serie A has been dogged by many as a fading league with Germany’s Bundesliga closing in on gaining that fourth Champions League slot, but here are 15 signings that could change that. With plenty of attrition by way of managerial changes—Jose Mourinho leaving Inter for Real Madrid headlining the way—already rippling across Serie A, the 2010-2011 campaign will surely be interesting.
These players aren’t the 15 greatest players linked to Serie A teams, but feasible transfers (in my opinion) that could make a difference in the league table.
