CFR starts preparing for the Champions League by offloading the high earners!

May 28, 2010 1 comment

A rumor for a few months now, a certainty starting today: Sixto Peralta leaves CFR Cluj mainly because of his huge salary for Liga I (375.000 Euros/season), but for a small one, if we think of the clubs and players the Romanian champions will meet next season, in the Champions League!

The club asked Peralta if he’d agree to a mutual termination of the current deal and the Argentinian agreed to move on, after two years spent in Romania. A classy player, a complete box-to-box midfielder, gifted with technique and vision above the average, someone who should have never missed CFR’s first eleven when fit, Peralta was too often this season considered just a rotation player, in my opinion, but I have to admit that, even though I admire his skills, he rarely made the kind of impact on a game everyone expected from him.

Another player offloaded by CFR right after completing the double is the Brazilian centre forward Nei, who will return to Al-Shabab, in spite of a couple of decisive performances and goals, in the final matches of the season. Nei collected 20 appearances in the league and scored 5 goals in the process.

Today’s press

January 29, 2010 Leave a comment
  • Claudinei Alexandre Aparecido Nei (29) looks set to join newly promoted Unirea Alba Iulia, on a loan deal, until the end of the season. The Brazilian forward never looked good enough for CFR or any other team fighting for the title and, in case the deal will be finalized, he’ll meet in Alba Iulia three former colleagues from Cluj, Rade Veljovic (24, striker), Andres Felipe de Souza Galiassi (29, central defender), Vitinha (23, left back), who are also on loan, until the summer. Nei played a lot in the first half of the seasons, but scored only two goals in fourteen appearances in the league.
  • Apparently George Copos, the owner of Rapid Bucharest, refused a tempting offer for the promising centre forward Alexandru Ionita (20). Promoted from the youth squad at the beginning of the season, Ionita scored 6 goals in the league already and also collected three call-ups to the U21 national team. The offer was higher than 1 mil. EUR and arrived at the club through FIFA agent Traian Gherghisan. According to the press, Ionita earns only 2.000 EUR / month, while the decision of Copos is rather strange, given his recent financial struggles and the desire to sell the club.
  • With Rui Duarte (29) still just a transfer target and while waiting for Polish international Pawel Golanski to extend the contract that is running out in the summer, Steaua is also looking at the possibility to get back George Ogararu (29), from Ajax Amsterdam. Already transfer listed by the Dutch club, Ogararu refused a move to Roda and says that he won’t have a problem in convincing the club to release him on a free transfer, as he’s currently still getting 700.000 EUR / season.
