Inter mustn't let Godin go so easily

Letting Diego Godin go to Cagliari practically for free after just one year at San Siro could be a mistake for Inter, insists Richard Hall.

Even at 34 years of age, Diego Godin has a lot to offer. When Cagliari confirmed they were in negotiations for the Uruguayan, there were no protests at Inter’s training ground. It has been generally accepted that, at his age and with his excessive salary, the natural thing to do it so let him move on, yet there is a nagging doubt that Inter should either kept him for one more year, or at least try to renegotiate his contract. He was an important feature in the latter half of the season and perhaps his influence was underrated.

Passetti: 'Complicated negotiation for Godin'

CEO Mario Passetti has confirmed Cagliari are in talks with Inter defender Diego Godin but admitted ‘it’s a difficult negotiation’.

The Uruguayan defender has been linked with the Rossoblu in recent days and sporting director Pierluigi Carta revealed Godin is interested in a move to Sardinia.

Suarez doubts put Juventus on edge

There are suggestions in Spain that Luis Suarez might not be leaving Barcelona after all, meaning Juventus must turn to a different target.

Suarez was told in a 90-second telephone call with new coach Ronald Koeman that he was not part of their plans for this season.

As his contract is due to expire in June 2021, he was asked to terminate it early by mutual consent.

Those negotiations have dragged on and seem no closer to a resolution, quite the opposite.

Marca: Atletico reject Juve's Morata offer

Atletico Madrid have rejected a €50m proposal from Juventus for Alvaro Morata, according to Spanish newspaper Marca.

It’s suggested the offer was made on the request of new coach Andrea Pirlo, who played alongside the striker in Turin in the 2014-15 season.

There have been growing reports that Morata is frustrated in Madrid and has asked coach Diego Simeone to let him leave this summer.

However, Atleti do not want to sell, having just purchased the forward from Chelsea for a total of €63m.

Morata seeking Juventus comeback

While Luis Suarez is heading to Juventus, he could be joined by Alvaro Morata, who Spanish and Italian reports claim has asked to leave Atletico Madrid.

Suarez is in advanced negotiations with Barcelona to terminate his contract by mutual consent, but could simply be sold for a nominal fee of circa €1.5m, similar to the Ivan Rakitic move to Sevilla.

He might not be the only forward coming to Juve from La Liga, because Cuatro.com and the Corriere dello Sport both claim that Morata could make a return to Turin.
