Bocchetti eyes Italian return
Salvatore Bocchetti is ready to end his career with Rubin Kazan should a big Italian club make him an offer this summer.

“The interest from Juventus in me is something that makes me proud, but it is still too early to talk about these things,” he told Tutto Juve.

“As I’ve said in the past, I wouldn’t have to think twice about returning to Italy if a great team made me an offer.

“Let us just see how things end.”

The centre-back signed a three-and-a-half year deal with the Russian club in the summer of 2010 after Genoa were reportedly offered €14m for him.

The former Ascoli, Lanciano and Frosinone man, now 25, has won five caps for his country – but his last appearance came in June 2010 against Switzerland.

He was named in Italy’s 32-man Euro 2012 preliminary list, but he didn’t make the final cut.

Barzagli hopeful of recovery
The injured Andrea Barzagli is remaining optimistic that he will be able to feature for Italy at Euro 2012 this summer.

Barzagli is struggling with a calf strain that could see him sidelined for the next 20 days and he may be replaced in the squad before the tournament begins.

However, the Juventus stopper is hopeful that he could remain in the party for the European Championship.

“Let’s hope it all works out,” Barzagli noted. “I don’t know how long I will be out for, you’ll have to ask the doctors…

“The calf is a big muscle and if the medical staff are optimistic about my recovery then I am even more optimistic than they are.

“The problem occurred in the last few minutes of the game against Russia on Friday when I stretched for the ball.

“At the time it didn’t seem like a big issue, but I was limping the day after. I feel better now, but we’ll have to wait and see.”

It is understood that Cagliari centre-back Davide Astori has been put on stand-by. A final decision on Barzagli will be made on Friday.

REAL MADRID, Higuain: "Juventus? I don't want to talk about it"
After the game won with his national team against Equador, Real Madrid forward Gonzalo Higuain has declared: "I am happy for this victory, now let's think about the friendly against Brazil. Juventus? I don't want to talk about this now, now I am focused on my national team".


RUSSIA/ RUBIN KAZAN, Bocchetti: "I'm waiting for an Italian top club to call me"
 Currently willing to leave Rubin Kazan, which is currently on a deal with until December 2013, in order to join back Serie A, Italian international defensive jolly Salvatore Bocchetti (25), interviewed by, stated: "As I said before, I wouldn't have second thoughts if an Italian top club called me and submitted the right offer. I'm proud Juventus are after me, but it's too soon to talk about my future. We'll see how it ends". Former Genoa player, tracked by Napoli as well, might leave for about 9 million euros.

Rossi represents good value
Giuseppe Rossi’s agent has again encouraged prospective clubs interested in the crocked star to consider the value of signing him from Villarreal.

With the Spanish side relegated from the Primera Division last term, it is expected that a number of high-profile members of the squad will be sold.

This includes Italian forward Rossi, despite the fact that he is out of action until next year after suffering a second cruciate knee ligament injury in April. 

His agent, however, believes that this will only lower his market valuation, rather than his ability to return to the same level of play.

“Pepito must stay away from the playing field for nine months because of his injury that, among other things was due to a not-so-perfect operation in Valencia,” again reflected Federico Pastorello, in reference to Rossi’s knee damage being a recurrence of an original injury that was believed to have been fixed by this initial surgical procedure a few months before.

“Whoever buys him now obviously has the ability with Villarreal to treat the figures very differently from the recent past and it is natural that the player can still be very attractive.

“Clearly the money to pay for a player who cannot appear until at least March 1 next year is a future investment, which has a cost.

“I am convinced that someone will approach us with this kind of discourse, now we must understand how and when.

“With Villarreal we are in constant contact, should there be any inquiries they will talk to us. Napoli? We’ve never ruled that out, anything could happen.”

Gullit: Van Persie ideal for Juve
Juventus would be making no mistake in securing the signature of Robin Van Persie this summer, says Ruud Gullit.

The Old Lady are keen on the Arsenal and Dutch striker who has just one year left on his contract with his current club.

“Van Persie is world class,” Milan legend Gullit told Tuttosport when asked about the transfer speculation.

“Juventus would certainly be making a great swoop by buying him. He’s a player who can change the face of Antonio Conte’s side.

“Should he join Juventus then they would have a stellar attack with few rivals in the world. I’m not surprised by the transfer speculation surrounding Van Persie.”

The centre-forward yesterday refused to talk in any detail about his future by insisting that he is just focused on Euro 2012.

Although Juve are keen on the former Feyenoord man, Manchester City are also interested in the player.

Sportmediaset - Juventus, Van Persie is approaching. Wednesday meeting with Udinese and Asamoah for Isla.
As reported by Sportmediaset, Robin Van Persie would be closer to Juventus because of the slowdown of Manchester City. The Dutch striker, out of contract in 2013, is considered to be the ideal player count to strengthen the offensive department. But the real obstacle to the talks would be the economic demands of the Arsenal captain, who asked 9 million per season. The other goal, Edinson Cavani is rather impossible to be taken: De Laurentiis calls for 40 to 45 million as the base price. As for Asamoah and Isla, on Wednesday there could be a summit between the Paratici e Larini for the stalled negotiations, but the economic demands of the Friuli region are very high: 35 million cash for both and the only counterparts who are interested in Pozzo Marrone, said non-transferable by Conte Building and that most likely will go to Genoa. Meanwhile, check a new name for the left wing, as an alternative to Armero and Kolarov. This is Adrian's estimated 10 million Barcelona.

Juve not thinking of Nainggolan
Juventus have reportedly dropped their interest in Radja Nainggolan and will pursue other avenues in the summer transfer market.

The Belgian has been heavily linked with a switch to the Turin outfit, who he previously held negotiations with in January.

Whilst the player has intimated that he could stay with Cagliari for next season, President Massimo Cellino has invited offers for the midfielder he rates at €18m.

However, it now appears unlikely that Juve will be back in for the No 4, according to Nainggolan’s agent.

“Currently the player is in retreat with Belgium and is not thinking about the market,” began Alessandro Beltrami to Calciosport24.

“As I’ve said in recent days, his arrival at Juventus has to be excluded because the Bianconeri are now thinking about something else. The last contact with the Juventus directors was back in January.”

Juve are rumoured to be one of the clubs tracking Udinese duo Mauricio Isla and Kwadwo Asamoah.

Seperti yang saya katakan beberapa hari terakhir ini, kemungkinan ia bergabung dengan Juventus harus diabaikan, karena Juventus sekarang berpikir merekrut pemain lain. Kontak terakhir dengan Juventus terjadi Januari lalu," ujar Beltrami.

Udinese: 'Juve deal not done, but...'
Udinese have “categorically” denied a deal with Juventus for Mauricio Isla and Kwadwo Asamoah, but confirmed “advanced negotiations.”

Tuttosport splashed the report this evening that an agreement to sign both players in co-ownership deals had already been decided.

“I can categorically deny the claim this affair can be considered a done deal,” Udinese director of sport Fabrizio Larini told TMW.

“I won’t deny there are some advanced negotiations and that Juventus are very interested in the two players, but I can rule out the idea this operation is concluded, especially as both of them are currently on the other side of the world.

“The problem is not the formula of sales, especially as if we were to reach an agreement, then it would be for a permanent sale.”
