Aleksandr Golovin is worth the risk and could become a major coup, but Juventus can’t hesitate, writes Vilizar Yakimov.

Probably some had heard the name, or had watched a game or two, and while the CSKA Moscow midfielder was a fairly popular figure in Eastern Europeand in Football Betting circles, he still was an unknown player for the majority.

Madrid only Real Milinkovic option

Real Madrid are the only club prepared to get close to Lazio’s €150m asking price for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, it’s reported.

President Claudio Lotito is a hard negotiator and is asking for €150m, though a deal could probably be done for €120m plus bonuses.
