Rumors and Realities: The Latest News in the Football World

R-R presents to you the latest rumors and realities of the football world.

After Cristiano Ronaldo's long transfer saga ended with joy in Manchester, Sir Alex Ferguson wants to bring more joy to United fans and has vowed to sign a striker before the transfer deadline on Aug. 31.   

 

Rumors

As Roma continue their chase to sign attacking players to make up for the sale of Mancini and add strike force to the team, manager Luciano Spalletti is keen on several targets.

We already know that Julio Baptista is close to completing his long-awaited move to Rome, however another Roma target, Chelsea's Florent Malouda, has already dismissed a possible switch to Roma.

A Roma target who seems to be actually interested in moving to Rome is David Suazo. Suazo has seemingly been deemed out-of-favor by new Inter manager Jose Mourinho.

Moving away from Roma to Turin, two unexpected injuries have left Juventus short of choices in midfield. With Marco Marchionni and Cristiano Zanetti out and Paolo De Ceglie, Caludio Marchisio, and Sebastian Giovinco participating in the Olympics, Juve might be set to sign a new midfielder.

 

Realities

In football transfer news, Luke Young moves from Middlesbrough to Aston Villa. Villa also signed Nick Shorey from Reading. Jose Antonio Reyes moves to Benfica and Gian Luca Pegolo moves to Genoa, both on loan.

Genoa have been very busy in the transfer market, and have also signed Matteo Ferrari on a free transfer. Wilhemsson moves a step forward in his life with a step backward in his career. He joins Saudi champions Al-Hilal, having proved to be a major flop in Europe while Juventus flop Sergio Almiron joins Fiorentina on loan.
