Where is SAVIOLA going? (July 17th)
He left RIVER PLATE as one of the hottest prospect in the World. He had a couple of seasons in FC BARCELONA in which one of the managers (Carles REXACH) insisted on playing him only for home games (ridiculous!).
Nonetheless, he managed to score 17 league goals and 4 in the Champions League!
In total for FC BARCELONA he has 78 goals in 173 matches (including friendlies).
Then he was off-loaded to AC MONACO on loan where he scored 19 goals in 48 matches.
FC BARCELONA didn't want him back and so he went to SEVILLA where last season he was the top scorer in the UEFA Cup's winning team (with 6 goals in 12 games). He also scored 9 league goals playing only 29 matches.
Now he is in the same situation again. Owned by FC BARCELONA but not wanted by his manager Frank RIJKAARD and now SAVIOLA has a 6 million euros price tag on his shoulders. A reasonable amount for any team to pay for a proven young striker with World Cup experience.
Rumours linked him with ARSENAL but today those were denied by manager Arsene WENGER.
Where is he heading now?
Here's a little list of those teams which have shown some interest in him:
