Gauracs, hoping to land a four years long deal with Rapid

  • Edgars Gauracs (21) has finally signed a contract with Rapid Bucharest and he joins the club on loan from Ventspils until the end of the season. “The Gauracs deal” had been announced for more than two weeks now and even Rapid’s officials began to have some doubts regarding his arrival in time for the club’s training camp from Turkey. The club’s owner, George Copos, confidently announced now that Gauracs has a bright future ahead of him at his new club, where he’ll stay for 4 more years if Rapid will activate its option for a permanent deal in the summer.
  • Assisted by their brother & agent Arthur Karamyan, Artavazd and Arman, the Karamyan twins recently released by FC Timisoara reached an agreement with Steaua Bucharest. They will get 100.000 EUR upfront and another 100.000 EUR in the summer, in case Steaua wins the league, a trick that should save appearances, as the Armenians’ wages won’t go over the 120.000 EUR salary cap imposed by Becali at the Bucharest side.

Sepsi, back in Romania

January 5, 2010 Leave a comment

The once promising left back returned to Romania to sign a five years long contract with FC Timisoara. The “Viola” outfit paid around 1,5 mil EUR for this transfer, which isn’t surprising given their recent tradition to pay inflated fees, especially in the Romanian market. Obviously, the club thinks it’s a good deal, comparing with the 2,5 mil EUR paid by Benfica in January 2008 (but that was a poor deal!, given the stature of Gloria Bistrita and the player’s ability at that time – proven in the two years spent in Portugal and in Spain – during the loan spell at Racing Santander).

Although young and still promising (plus, he plays on a position that generally lacks good players), Sepsi will turn out a good deal if: 1. Timisoara will manage to win something this year (ideally, the title and a spot in the Champions League, which won’t be that easy) and 2. Sepsi will get to play in the National Team (will get call-ups, for sure, but I doubt he can play ahead of Razvan Rat in the coming 2-3 years).

With this move, though, Timisoara can count on two promising players on the left flank, Sepsi and Latovlevici (promising, but yet to prove himself as a reliable left back) and also be prepared to let go Arman and Artavazd Karamyan, the Armenian twins who entered the last six months of their current contracts.
