Ricardo Carvalho leaves Portuguese NT...

... Over what seems to a mistery.

Ricardo Carvalho renounced today to the Portuguese NT, claiming to have felt "disrespected and wounded" in his dignity.Collapse )

Get it, Roma

Gago a go-go to Roma

Roma have confirmed the loan signing of Argentina midfielder Fernando Gago from Real Madrid.

The Serie A outfit were closing in on the player despite interest from English clubs, while the 25-year-old was also linked with a move to Palermo this summer.

But Roma have now won the race to sign Gago, whose move could be made permanent next summer with the Serie A outfit having an option to buy the South American for six million euros (£5.3m).

Gago joined Real Madrid from Boca Juniors in January 2007 but struggled to secure regular first-team action in the past two seasons.


Official: Lyon's Miralem Pjanic joins Roma

AS Roma have continued their summer spending with the signing of Miralem Pjanic from Olympique Lyonnais for a fee believed to be in the region of €11 million on a four-year deal.

Luis Enrique has strengthened his side's ranks with the likes of Bojan from Barcelona and Maarten Stekelenburg from Ajax, and now 21-year-old Pjanic has become the latest big name to join the Stadio Olimpico outfit.

The Bosnian international joined the French side from Metz in 2008, and became a key player in midfield, playing 116 games for Lyon, netting 15 goals in his three-year stint.

Pjanic is a regular in Safet Susic's Bosnia and Herzegovina side, scoring three goals in his 26 appearances for the national team.


So happy for Miro, and good luck to Lady Gago.
