Right back fever

Posted on August 23, 2007. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , |

There’s been much interest in right-backs of late!

Cicinho’s on-again, off-again transfer to Roma seems to be finally complete. It seems that Roma went to great lengths to sign him, going from a 5 million euro offer to 8 million and finally 9 million with 2 million extra based on performance.

Chelsea have given up on Daniel Alves after offer upon offer has been knocked back by Sevilla. It’s good to see a club that values it’s players and future more than a one-off pay cheque and it’s good to see that Chelsea can’t always buy whoever they want! The last offer was in the region of 36 million euros! They have instead settled for Belleti who’s had a tough time going from champions league hero to bench warmer after Barca brought Zambrotta in from the demoted Juventus. Not of the same calibre as Alves but a good right back that opens up attacking options on the flank.

So the Brazilian shuffle continues (also with Emerson joining many compatriots at AC Milan)…
