More Transfer News & Some Homecoming

With less then a month away before Argentina kick starts its Olympic defense campaign, here is some interesting transfer that has been taking place.

According to my friend Sean from, there is a possibility that
Hernan CRESPO might return back to Argentina to play for Independiente, as a replacement for German DENIS. The main reason is obviously Jose MOURINHO. For more news on that, you may check it out on his blog.

CRESPO did play under the so-called Special One for one season at Chelsea, but struggle to fit into MOURINHO’s system, whom I remember has always had a soft spot for Didier DROGBA. With MOURINHO now in charge of Inter, I do have some reservation about the future of our other stars currently there.

Also making a return across the Atlantic Ocean is non-other than our 2006 World Cup captain, Juan Pablo SORIN who will be making a return to join Cruzeiro of Brazil (the club which he spent for a couple of years during the earlier part of this decade). After the World Cup he was signed by German outfit Hamburg SV. However his time there was mostly plagued with injury, eventually the club has decided to terminate his contract. He is expected to be out for another three months and will continue his recovery at Cruzeiro’s facility.

One of our stars of the 2004 Athens Games, Andres D’ALESSANDRO could be on the verge to sign a lucrative deal with Inter. Hold your breath my friend, it’s Internacional of Brazil. Despite of the offers that were coming from Europe, his agent Gustavo MASCARDI had stated that Andres is more than happy to move to Brazilian football. It’s just sad to sight for me to the way things are going for him as I always felt that he was going to be a big star for our national team. Sincerely, my only hope is all the best for him.

With Damián ESCUDERO leaving Velez Sarsfield to join Villareal, going the other way is Leandro SAMOZA. It’s a real pity that SAMOZA never really manage to fulfill his expectation when he first went there. Perhaps a return home might just help him to resurrect his career.

Still in Spain; after losing Pablo AIMAR, Diego MILITO could the next Albiceleste that is also bound to leave Real Zaragoza. Report suggests that the striker has personally told the club that he wants to leave the club and join Valencia. The club has earlier rejected ₤12 million bid for him from Napoli.

Hey John,

Cheers for the link :-)

It is a real shame about D'allesandro I recall his time on loan at Portsmouth fondly and was genuinely gutted when he moved onto Zaragoza (who can blame him!) Was surprised to see him move back to Argentina and am surprised still to see a european team go after him. Even if it was in the french, german or portuguese league?

I'm sure he'll move back eventually but I don't think he'll ever be good enough to get into the national team too often.

Take it easy man,
