Todorov signs for Steaua

June 10, 2010 1 comment
  • With the veteran Petre Marin already gone and other players looking to move away from Steaua, the red and blue outfit made a surprising move, before the official presentation of the new manager, Victor Piturca. The Bulgarian full-back Yordan Todorov should make up for Golanski’s departure on the right side of a brand new back four, with the Polish player gone exactly how Todorov comes to Ghencea stadium: on a free transfer. The 28 years old passed a medical today,  an exam he took among most of the players belonging to Unirea Urziceni, which caused a bit of confusion in the media today ;-).

  • 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.

  • After the signing of Razvan Cocis, Portsmouth seems  interested to capture  Robinson Zapata Rufay (31), in order to secure a backup solution for veteran goalie David James.  The Colombian keeper has been a key player for Steaua since his arrival in 2007 from Cucuta (78 matches in the league, in two and a half seasons) and managed to turn in his favor a difficult scenario at the beginning of the current season. Steaua had bought the promising Ciprian Tatarusanu for a huge transfer fee and tried to impose him in goal, but Zapata stayed calm, trained well and once he got a chance to return, showed an impressive form and regained his status and regular place in the first eleven.
  • Dinamo’s attacking midfielder Adrian Cristea (26) has been linked with Espanyol Barcelona. Apparently, the Primera club wanted the talented, but rarely motivated player on a loan deal, until the summer, with the option to make the deal permanent afterwards, but Dinamo rejected, as the Bucharest side would prefer an unconditionned sale right now.
  • Pawel Golanski (27) is expected to extend his deal with Steaua today, a move that would block Rui Duarte’s (29) transfer from FC Brasov. The American midfielder Josh Tudela (25) also asked the club to decide on his future, although coach Mihai Stoichita would prefer to extend the trial period and further test the player during the team’s second training camp.

  • Rapid is trying to sign the former Olympique Marseille and Grenoble forward, Elliot Grandin (22). Of course, the deal will go through only if Grandin will come to Bucharest as a free player, as Rapid is currently trying to get 6 mil. EUR to clear some debt and aquire the license for top flight football next season.
  • Another target for Rapid is Ventspils’ Edgars Gauracs (21). In this case, the Bucharest club is hoping for a loan with a buying option in the summer. Gauracs impressed in Latvia U21 – Romania U21 5-1, when he managed to score a hat-trick.
  • Marc Wotte is in Romania, finalizing the negotiations with Adrian Mititelu, the owner of Universitatea Craiova. The Dutchman has been offered a contract until June 2010 and should get 20.000 EUR / month + bonuses. My bet is that he won’t stay until the end of the contract, if he signs.
  • Polish international Pawel Golanski (27) has entered the last six months of the current contract and Steaua isn’t at all keen to extend it, mainly because the right back was unavailable several times due to different injuries and they’d like a more consistent player. But they’ll probably keep Golanski if he agrees to earn less (around 100.000 EUR / season). Fact: in two and a half seasons, Golanski collected 42 starts in the league and this season featured in 10 of the 17 played so far.
