Let’s start by saying the following, you should not trust the Transfer Market, ever!
With that being said, I have little people I “kind of trust” when I follow the Transfer Market during any summer, one of them is Gianluca Di Marzio a very respected and seasoned sports journalist, reporter for Sky Sport in Italy.
He comes today with TWO transfer shocks and on both of them comes with some new things.
In the morning, he describes that “an agreement with Javier Mascherano has already been reached, now begins the negotiations with Barcelona. Contacts between Juventus and Mascherano agents have been ongoing for about 15 days, then two days ago the Argentine entourage went to talk with Barça.”
In the evening, after a news coming from a Spanish source, more precisely in the program ‘Que t’hi jugues’ of the Cadena Ser. “Dani Alves leaving Barcelona to sign with Juventus: a three-year contract”, again Di Marzio tops and backs that information saying that confirmations are arriving from his sources. “As it collected by us [Di Marzio team], the interest of Juventus is there all right. And it is strong, concrete. Contacts and meetings have already taken place, a two-year option on the table: Juventus now have to decide together with his coach if you continue the negotiations or not, close it permanently or not.”
What will be the outcome of these two shocks of the day? We’ll have to wait and see! In the mean time:
