For some updates on transfers news and rumors involving the hundreds of teams around the world that did not become great because of the intervention of a nationalist dictator (I kid, I kid), here we go:
Various reports are stating that Juventus have signed or are close to signing Felipe Melo, who appears would welcome the move. This would be a good signing and would bolster a midfield that is looking to get a little younger and would pair Melo with fellow Brazilian Diego. English press continue to indicate Arsenal is still in the running for Melo as well. Don't fret Gooners, at least you won't be losing Robin van Persie or his annual injury layoff and attitude problem.
Hot off the heels of signing American stalwart Oguchi Onyewu (a fantastic signing for Gooch, one that will bring some attention to the Serie A this year from US fans), AC Milan is looking to quell fan unrest at the loss of Kaka by focusing on Luis Fabiano rather than Klaas Jan Huntelar, a rumored Man U target.
Manchester City continue to make bids for everyone and anyone, making an offer for Benedict Arnold striker Giuseppe Rossi, which was quickly rebuffed as Man City are like the teenager without a prom date hoping someone will say yes.
