Steaua and Dinamo’s rivalry continues. This time, on the transfer market

  • The two fierce rivals are keeping tabs on Gloria Bistrita’s winger, Adrian Hora, who is tipped to move to one of the big clubs from Bucharest at the end of the season. The former youth international looked very promising a few years ago, when he made his debut in the top flight playing for UTA Arad, and the transfer fee paid by a poor club like Gloria was surprising at that time: around 250.000 EUR. Now, it just look like wise investment, as “The Vampires” should get at least double that sum and maybe even some other promising youngsters in exchange.
  • Dinamo is looking to strengthen the defence and the Red Dogs will be testing in the next few days the Ivorian Robert Sakara, who’s a free player at the moment. The trial was obtained by his agent, Eutin Bojin, who was aware of the lack of options for the centre-back role, after the injuries suffered by Dragos Grigore and Lucian Goian. Anyway, this is a strange decision by Dinamo’s staff, as they have several youngsters in the reserve team (playing regularly in the second division), not to mention the Czech Marin Zivny and Inter’s on loan hot prospect Cristian Daminuta. Yet coach Cornel Talnar insist on pairing the insecure Moti with the natural right back Scarlatache and testing unknown 25 years old players…

Daminuta and Bozovic hoping to leave in the summer

Unhappy with their current status, Dinamo’s Cristian Daminuta and Rapid’s Vladimir Bozovic asked their agents to start looking for interested teams. Daminuta, who came on loan from Inter’s Primavera, featured only a couple of minutes so far and is anger that even now, when several regular defenders are missing, he’s not being offered the chance to impress and convince the club to activate the buying clause and make the deal permanent. Bozovic, on the other hand, is frustrated at losing his place in the starting eleven, after the arrival of Diego Ciz, who played regularly at left back, locking the Montenegro left wing back out of the team. In the summer, Bozovic will enter the final year of his deal with the Bucharest side.

  • The Karamyan twins, recently released by FC Timisoara, after failed negotiations to extend deal that were running out in the summer, are reportedly close to a move to a return to Bucharest. Steaua is offering them a deal until the summer, with bonuses in case of success in the league, as Gigi Becali decided not to pay more than 120.000 EUR per season and otherwise there wasn’t any room for a discussion with Arman and Artavazd, who were paid better than this in Timisoara.
  • Dinamo has finally got the nod from Inter Milano for a loan deal involving Cristian Daminuta (19). The player has been training with the Bucharest club for the last couple of weeks and should stay with the Red Dogs until the summer. Dinamo will have the option to make the deal permanent, in exchange of half of million EUR.
  • After the Ouon duel, Steaua and FC Vaslui are preparing for another battle. Their target is another defender, who previously played on loan for Rapid Bucharest and left a solid impression in Romania. Joao Paulo Andrade is Portuguese, 28 years old, currently plays for Le Mans and can cover three roles: central defender, right back and defensive midfielder.
  • After Gabriel Tamas moved to England and already played a few games for West Bromwich Albion in the Championship, it seems that there’s an “advertising campaign” going on, involving another Dinamo player. Gabriel Torje is a 20 years old right winger, regular in the U21, and very experienced already, with almost 100 matches played in the first division for FC Timisoara and Dinamo, plus a few matches in Europe. The price though might be too high, as Dinamo paid a massive fee in 2008, around 2 mil. EUR for only 50% of his federative rights…

  • Cristian Daminuta (19) is trying to take back previous statements released in the Romanian press, which have angered Inter Milano’s officials. Now training with Dinamo Bucharest, Daminuta was quoted saying that he never wants to return to Inter, but now he says that he was only angry about the unfair balance in the press between his agitated nightlife and good performances for the Primavera squad.  Of course, he added that it would be a dream come true to play for Inter (probably thinking about the expiring date of his contract, which is June 2013, and the chance of a looong suspension). Although he made his debut in the Romanian first division when he was only sixteen, the defensive midfielder / central defender played only five games as a senior so far – two for Timisoara and three for Modena, in Serie B, where he was loaned by Inter.
  • Dayro Moreno (24) seems destined to continue playing in Romania, where he recently said that he will refuse to return. He did return, last night, and it seems that the negotiation with FC Timisoara will go very smoothly. The Viola club has already an agreement with Steaua over the transfer fee (450.000 EUR plus taxes), while the Colombian attacking midfielder will have the chance to earn 12.000 EUR per month, 7.000 EUR more than he was getting paid at Steaua, after he suffered an important wage cut earlier this season.
  • Cristian Fabbiani (26) will have to find quickly another club or he will have to return against his will in Romania, in order to respect his current deal with CFR Cluj. Not that he’s wanted there, but the player’s agent Luciano Duthu knows it’s the only way his client will get paid and, at the same time, won’t risk a suspension. And he will get paid well!, because El Ogro earns at CFR 350.000 EUR/season, a deal signed in 2007 and justified only in the first season, when the centre-forward scored 11 goals in 28 matches. Overweight and attitude problems forced two consecutive loan deals, to Newell’s Old Boys (5 goals in 15 matches) and River Plate (2 goals in 25 macthes), and without having them solved in the meantime, the Argentinian has no future at CFR Cluj.
