January 30, 2012 (8:40) – After a month of rumors and negotiations, whether real or imagined, the market sees the final straight. Two more days and then tomorrow at 19, Big Ben will say stop. And these last two days will also see the assault on the red and blue diligence of Juventus, the Old Lady who takes all his strategies of persuasion to get their black and white stripes on the shoulders of Radja Nainggolan, in one of the soap operas of this winter market.
Antonio Conte has eliminated all the competitors and chose the Belgian of Cagliari to insert the last piece in the midfield, one that considers it essential to launch the league chase.
Yesterday there weren’t the long-awaited meeting in Milan between Juventus general director Marotta and president Cellino. But it is only a delay, after the gray smoke of past days.
The number one of Cagliari does not yield, with the idea of keeping the player until June or, alternatively, let him go on his own terms, when Juve will find the final in front of the take it or leave.
This tactic proved successful, for both, the last year with Matri. Cellino evaluates Nainggolan at least 15 million and chose Juve as the only party, stopping the ears in front of the Russian sirens. But to leave at once the jewel wants money and players, for salvation is near, but not sure.
From Turin are preparing the final proposal: money (10 million) and one or two players. No more Immobile, half of which was sold to Genoa, as announced by the president Preziosi.
Conte stops Marrone and Juve could help Cagliari to get to Parolo or Candreva, both of Cesena and missed targets in the summer. Also in the sight the twenty-one of Samp, Marco Soriano, milestone for U-21 of Ciro Ferrara. But these last two days could also be used to thin out the attack. Six players, after the arrival of Pinilla, are there too many and to leave could be Joaquin Larrivey, requested by the formula of the loan from Reggina.
