Alessandro Gamberini (Fiorentina to Napoli)
Gamberini will play in UEFA Europe League after he has signed for Napoli, one of the biggest clubs in Italy. The central defender was at a great level during last season with Fiorentina, where he played 29 games and scored a goal. His strength in defense has given him the chance to take a step forward in his career, which will give him the chance to fight for a Champions League spot. Playing in Europe with Napoli will maybe give him the chance to play back with Italian national team, where he already has played 8 games.
Fiorenitina has sold Gamberini in an operation where midfield Behrami is also going to the Neapolitan team. According to Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport, Napoles has paid € 8,5 millions for both players.
Valon Behrami (Fiorentina to Napoli)
Swedish right wing midfield has packed again and moved to Napoli, after playing in Lugano, Genoa, Hellas Verona, Lazio, West Ham and Fiorentina. At 27 years old he starts a new challenge in the Coppa Italia holders Napoli. Now the question is will he be able to stay for a longer time than on the other teams that he has played for. Behrami is moving to the south Italian team with his fellow Gamberini, both moving from Fiorentina. Napoli has paid € 8,5 millions for the two players. It seems like Napoli has bought him to play in the center midfield instead of in his natural wing position.
Glenn Loovens (Celtic to Zaragoza)
Former Celtic Glasgow defense has moved to Spanish La Liga, where he will defend Real Zaragoza’s colors, a team that stayed during the entire last season on relegation positions, but saved themselves in the last date of the league. The Dutch, age 27, is moving to Spain in a no cost operation, since his contract ended up with the Scottish team. He has signed for two seasons, but there is a chance of staying a third one if he accomplishes some objectives. Loovens won two Scottish leagues and one Cup, and now will play in a more competitive league, where the target will be to save Zaragoza from relegation to the Second Division.
Micah Richards (Manchester City to Madrid)
Real Madrid is looking for a right wing defense. The first choice was Maicon, but negotiations have recently stopped. Spanish League winners have a new name in their list: Micah Richards, who can play in both wing and center positions in defense. It seems that City is asking for €10 millions, same as Inter for Maicon. The difference is that Richards is seven years younger and can play in more positions, so the British player’s name has been underlined in Madrid list of possibilities.
Robinho (Milan to Santos)
Santos intends to begin negotiations with Italian AC Milan to recruit the player Robinho de Souza, who according to sources cited today Brasilian site Globoesporte expressed interest in returning to Brazil.
According to Globoesporte, Santos is willing to pay €4 millions for the striker as well as a loan of the international goalkeeper Rafael Cabral Barbosa. If the operation went well, Robinho will be going back to the team where he started playing professionally.
