ROME – Franck Ribery arrived in Florence at 11.00, welcomed by about 300 fans. Now the medical visits and then the signature on the contract. Tomorrow, Thursday 22 August, the presentation.
"I'm happy – the first words of the Frenchman – I talked for a week with Fiorentina. I also spoke with Luca Toni. He told me that the purple one is a big club and the city is beautiful. And I like Italian too and I speak it a bit even though I have to improve. Thank you all".
Juventus market share, work for a Rakitic-Emre Can exchange
Rakitic at Juventus and Emre Can at Barcelona. Or at least that's the plan of Juventus ds Fabio Paratici. Plan to which the ds has given form to the table Monday night, when he met with the blaugrana colleagues in Catalonia. It remains to be seen whether Barcelona agrees with Paratici's plan.
"The success of the Rakitic-Emre Can puzzle – Tuttosport writes today – is not yet obvious, but the first signs are clear and positive".
All that remains is to wait for the next few hours or days.
"The Rome – explains the Corriere dello Sport – breaks the delay and even the patterns in the last decade of the market, to complete the team available to Fonseca. In the coming days Petrachi could close for Daniele Rugani , who has been held in a bain-marie over the past few weeks waiting for more intriguing options. To unblock the situation would be the usual exchange with Juventus , which would get the tag of the very young Alessio Riccardi , star class 2001 of the Roman nursery ".
In this case Rugani would be sold outright to Rome, and not on loan, for a valuation between 20 and 25 million. Here too the advice is always the same. All that remains is to wait.
