The info comes from and the two clubs are, apparently, Lazio and AS Bari. The forward, who has an excellent 2010, scoring at will, has been recommended in Italy by his former coach, Dario Bonetti. The 26 years old has 12 goals this season, 7 of them coming in the 7 matches played so far this year, reaching the Greek Pantelis Kapetanos at the top of the best scorers list in Liga I. Cristea, who looked very promising back in his Steaua days, when a brace scored against Valencia made the exhuberant owner Gigi Becali state that he will sell this player for no less than 20 million Euros. Now, Dinamo would be more than happy to cut the zero and cash in 2 million Euros, as they paid less than half of million to get the forward from FC Timisoara…

Became a “Romanian football observer” in 2003, when I got the chance to work for Bayer 04 Leverkusen (forever grateful to Ilja Kaenzig, Tor Kristian Karlsen and Fernando Troiani for the opportunity and guidance). Even though I’ve changed clubs and also worked for different companies involved in the beautiful game, travelling and scouting live on almost every continent, I never took my eyes away from the always intriguing and surprising Romanian football.

Through this blog, I’ll try to provide the daily important information and some insight as well, for all those fans or professionals interested in a player, a club or anything related to Romanian football. So do not hesitate to forward me your questions, requests or thoughts!

Oh, and please accept my appologies for any mistakes in English! Thanks! 🙂
