Today’s rumors: Lung to Hamburg, Cristea to Newcastle

July 12, 2010 2 comments
  • Universitatea Craiova received an approach from Hamburger SV for promising keeper Silviu Lung Jr. Apparently, the 1. Bundesliga club was hoping to land a deal in the region of 2 million Euros, but talks stopped after Adrian Mititelu expressed his desire to start negotiating a deal from 4 million Euros. The kid is good, but not that good. At least not yet…
  • Although recent press reports spoke of Dinamo’s willingness to cut down the asking price for last season’s top scorer Andrei Cristea, it seems that the Bucharest side didn’t rush the player to the nearest airport when Newcastle United offered one and a half million Euros. A written offer is expected and, in the meantime, the press will try to decide which of these two Turkish clubs are interested in Marius Niculae: Bursaspor or Manisaspor. Niculae was simply too poor last season to determine a race for his signature this summer…

  • Former FIFA agent Daniel Stanciu was officially appointed as FC Timisoara’s sporting director. Stanciu made a name for himself working for notorious Romanian agents Victor and Ioan Giovani Becali and was looking more and more influential lately, but the move to Timisoara had been announced for a couple of months now and this doesn’t come as such a big surprise anymore.
  • Pawel Golanski revealed that Steaua hasn’t made any official offer to extend his current deal, which will expire in June. The Polish full back said that the Bucharest side surprisingly refused an offer from a Russian club this winter and that he probably won’t extend his contract once the season comes to an end. Still, in spite of this situation, Golanski remains Steaua’s first choice at right back, given the club’s inability to bring in quality defenders.
  • The Nigerian defender Kasali Yinka Casal, who signed for CFR Cluj this winter, will be offered the chance to play regular football and adjust to the new style and environment at Gaz Metan Medias, where he could move on loan until the end of the season. The two clubs already shook hands, only the player’s decision is expected…
  • Rapid is trying to fix an incredible mistake at this level, as the club signed Edgars Gauracs without testing the player from the medical point of view. Now, the Latvian striker has been put through all kinds of tests, after failing to train and play in friendly matches due to some old muscular problems and Rapid is even thinking of making the contract void, as the striker has only been loaned from Ventspils until the summer and he already looks like he’ll be missing at least the first three or four rounds…
