Milan talks for Bruno Fernandes

Portuguese media claim Milan are in negotiations for Sporting CP midfielder Bruno Fernandes, but a €70m deal seems unlikely.

Sporting had hoped to sell the former Sampdoria man to Manchester United, but the Premier League transfer window has now shut.

According to O Jogo, Sporting CP want only a cash sum of €70m, which was also want they asked Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur for this summer.

A Bola, on the other hand, point to the Rossoneri proposals, which include €30m cash plus striker Andre Silva and Samu Castillejo.

Marega offered to Napoli

Napoli have been offered FC Porto hitman Moussa Marega, according to the club’s connected radio station.

It is no secret that the Partenopei are seeking a centre-forward, with Mauro Icardi refusing to leave Inter for anyone except Juventus.

Edin Dzeko of Roma and free agent Fernando Llorente have also been mentioned.

Now Radio Kiss Kiss claim that Napoli were ‘alerted to’ the possibility they could sign Marega.

The 28-year-old Mali international can play as a centre-forward, a support striker or on the right wing.

Benfica and Porto eye Olsen

Roma goalkeeper Robin Olsen could be heading towards Portugal, as O Jogo claims Benfica and FC Porto are interested.

The Sweden international was signed a year ago to replace Alisson Becker at a cost of €9m, but had a dismal debut Serie A season.

In the closing stages, he was dropped in favour of veteran Antonio Mirante and has now been usurped by Pau Lopez.

According to Portuguese paper O Jogo, Olsen has caught the eye of both Porto and Benfica.

Ancelotti: 'More than one Napoli buy'

Carlo Ancelotti insists Mario Rui “is not on the market” and Napoli “could purchase another two big players and not just one” this summer.

The Coach spoke to TV Luna after a 5-0 friendly win over Serie C side Feralpisalò, denying reports Mario Rui was close to FC Porto or Benfica.

“Mario Rui is not on the market and neither is Faouzi Ghoulam, as we have no intention of selling them. They are a strong pair who work well together.”

Perin statement annoyed Juve

Sky Sport Italia claim Benfica infuriated Juventus with their statement on Mattia Perin’s failed medical, so FC Porto are ready to step in.

The rumours were circulating that the goalkeeper’s medical tests flagged up some issues, but negotiations were seemingly continuing behind the scenes.

The idea was and remains to make this a loan with obligation to buy once Perin has made several competitive appearances for Benfica.

Perin edges closer to Benfica

Juventus goalkeeper Mattia Perin is increasingly close to a Benfica move for approximately €15m, claim Sky Sport Italia.

The shot-stopper is still only 26 and had hoped to climb the ranks at Juve following his €12m transfer last summer.

However, with only nine competitive appearances last season and Gigi Buffon returning as understudy to Wojciech Szczesny, it’s evident the former Genoa man has to leave.

Roma defender Ivan Marcano left the training camp so he could finalise a return to FC Porto, claim reports in Italy.

The 32-year-old centre-back was not present at Trigoria today for the first training session of the pre-season.

According to LaRoma24.it, this is because he is back in Portugal where he is ready to sign for his old club FC Porto.

It’s a return to the side where he spent four years until leaving last summer as a free agent.

Marcano made only 13 competitive appearances in a Giallorossi jersey, scoring one goal.
