  • Kasali Yinka Casal (22) needs to impress Andrea Mandorlini in these next few days, if he wants to become a CFR Cluj player. Although he has already signed a contract, it wasn’t registered yet, and the Nigerian’s performances in the first training camp have been rather poor so far. The same goes for centre-back Patrick Kanyuka, who apparently has even less chances than the left back, according to club president Iuliu Muresan.
  • Rapid Bucharest announces the imminent return of Ilie Iordache (24) to Romania. The forward belongs to AEK Athens, who took him on an almost free transfer (there was a huge scandal at the time that involved Pandurii Targu Jiu and Dinamo), but rarely used him (only three matches this season, all as a substitute). The player is expected to join Rapid for the second training camp, in Turkey, and should replace Brazilian left winger Carlos César dos Santos Cesinha (29), who’s in the last six months of the current contract and also rarely featured in the first half of season.
  • Rapid’s attacking left back Vladimir Bozovic (28) was yet again the star of an unprofessional behavior episode, which took place in the club’s training camp. The Montenegro defender took along Slovenian midfielder Darijan Matic (26) and both had a couple of beers in a bar next to the stadium they both had left at half time, after being replaced by the coach.

  • The Dayro Moreno case took a new turn, as the player looks very determined to leave Romania. In the time spent here, he tried to convince Steaua’s board to accept a bid from Once Caldas, although the Bucharest side had already shook hands with FC Timisoara. Moreno held talks with Timisoara, but surprised everyone with his demands. Knowing what the club is ready to offer (around 200.000 EUR / season), the attacking midfielder asked 300.000 EUR / season, while at Steaua he was getting only 60.000 EUR / season. His strategy angered Timisoara’s president Marian Iancu, who decided to withdraw from any negotation and Moreno returned to Colombia, where he could get good news (Steaua accepts an inferior offer from Once Caldas) or a bad news (Steaua suspends the player for the reminder of his contract).
  • The veteran defender Cosmin Contra (34) is looking forward to a return to his beloved club FC Timisoara. Only a reserve player at Getafe in the first half of season, Contra is tempted by a return home given Timisoara’s chances of winning the title. This won’t be a premiere for the expert right back, as he did it once before, when he was an Atletico Madrid player, back in 2005.
  • Steaua has not given up on two of its targets and the club is pushing hard for a deal with AEL Limassol regarding central defender Edwin Ouon (29), desperately wanted by coach Mihai Stoichita, after the red and blue outfit parted ways with Ionut Rada and skipper Sorin Ghionea. Steaua raised its offer from 300.000 EUR to 700.000 EUR. The same transfer fee could be paid also for FC Brasov’s right back, Rui Duarte (29). The Portuguese is probably the best player in the league on this position and is currently in a middle of a scandal with his club, having refused to return to Romania and start training for two weeks now.
